12 oz poured into a mug

a: very thick head with good retention and nice lacing. very dark brown

s: definitely some citrus - maybe grapefruit, and a little bit of spice

t: moderately roasted malts, sweet, solid hop bitterness peaking out, a little hint of rye warmth, then the roasted malts take over again in the finish. not much alcohol for the abv

m: fairly oily, but with good carbonation

o: there are a number things going on here and they all seem perfectly balanced. an inviting smell, some pretty disparate tastes that somehow pull together wonderfully, and a pleasing look. this one is a winner for sure.

Pours black with a large head.
Nose shows pine, grapefruit, bready and nutty malt and a soft spicy hit.
More spicy rye as a flavour, along with a little roast. Some piny hops followed by a balanced finish.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick creamy beige head that dies down slowly and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, pine resins, some citrus, light grapefruit and a touch of spicy rye.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has roasted malts, chocolate, faint coffee, bitter pine resins, citrus/grapefruit and rye malts on the back.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Quite enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle
