UGLY Bottle, terrible name. Love this style which is between porter and IPA. This one finishes mid-pack. Like the brewer. (bottle into tulip)

A - Pours light brown head of 2 finger foam atop a brown-black body. The head settles quickly but leaves nice, thick lace.

S - Sweet, chocolate malt with coffee. Citrusy, pine hops are in background, grassy, herbal.

T - Like smell, it's sweet, toffee malt up front with brown sugar, coffee, and caramel. Hops assert mid-palate mostly pine and lemon rind, and then it finishes roasty and charred woody. Good finish.

M - Medium body, mid carbonation, and dry finish.

D - Nice roasty Black IPA, more of a porter.

Quite carbonated. Smokey and a tad acidic. A grassy undertone. Good wintertime brew.
