Pours dark like a stout with thick and frothy tan head. Great retention and lacing. Smell is nutty, roasty, and chocolaty but not very pronounced. Has a tinge of hop bitterness that peaks through the dark malt flavor. Flavor follows the nose. The mouth feel is very pleasant; slightly sticky, smooth, and gets creamier as the beer warms. Overall this is a fantastic beer, its got a little bit of everything. Highly recommend.

A - An abundance of creamy tan head (about 2 inches), which held well. Very dark.

S - Strong hop smell, with rye, pine trees, and a bit of orange peel.

T - A powerful pine tree hoppiness, but, oddly, not as much as expected. Front is a citrus flavor and middle is a pine forest, with a bitterness that holds.

M - Medium to thick body. Not a strong alcohol presence.

O - A piney bitterness, like an IPA, but the dark color of a stout. A bit on the bitter side, but still enjoyable.
