4/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This pours a very dark amber with ruby tints and huge fluffy slightly off white head.

Malt driven nose: chocolate, a bit of caramel. Some toasted grain. Not getting much of the strong American hop aroma promised on the bottle. Still nice though.

Solid malt body on the palate with the chocolate coming through a bit. Hops a lot more evident here. Provide just enough bitterness to provide balance.

Full bodied and high carbonation.

A bloody nice drop.

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown with an absolutely massive, growing head.
Nose shows grapefruit and spicy hops along with soft roasted malt and nutty notes. Tempting.
Roasted malt dominates as a flavours, with nutty and cocoa characters, but there's also some metallic and grainy notes. Underneath is soft grapefruit.
Carbonation is much too high.

Pours a burnt ruby red with a huge three finger frothy head and lacing everywhere,the smell isnt much with feint hints of toffee malts,burnt caramel and chestnuts,the mouthfeel is light bodied suprisingly and the taste is a little better with hints of chestnuts,burnt caramel,nectarines,marzipan and finished with a herbal bittersweetness and overall its alright but lacks in a few departments to make me want to come back for more but glad ive tried it cheers.
