Poured into a glass a very very nice black color, with some awesome carbonation, there is a very nice one-finger plus thick, creamy, off-white head, with some very nice thick sticky lacing left behind. The nose is very malty, with notes of chocolate, licorice, toffee, coffee, and some vanilla. The taste is also very very nice, malty, with a nice little hop note, lots dark stuff. Medium body, with a very slight bitter/dry finish. Overall a very very nice brew, glad to have picked up a bottle in LV. To date the best ABA I've had. Highly Recommended!

I am not very good at the standard review so I will give my overall impression This is a great black ale from Firestone. Pours a dark amber and looks inviting. Tastes wonderful! Well balanced with a bit of warmth at the end. This is my first time trying and I will certainly have again.

A: Pretty much black with a nice tan head. Lacing is super solid, too.
S: A lot of hops and a little bit of bready sweetness from the rye.
T: Still a lot of the hops going on here with a good bit of piney and citrus notes. Really awesome earthy tones and still some sweetness with a balance of the toasty notes. A little hot in the finish, especially when it warms up, but it's a good touch.
M: Solid medium body. A little sticky and first, but that leaves quick.
O: Awesome beer. I'm a big hop head and i'm hella into this because of the earthy tones.

Black with a light tan head, some retention & lace.

Plenty of hop aroma here, it's seriously dank (with some underlying sweaty gym socks).

Very hop forward. Surprisingly little malt flavour considering the colour, I actually wonder if they used Cynamar? Hints of underlying pumpernickel bread.

Moderate to full body is very smooth with a light acidity.

It's good, but it doesn't really come together for me.
