Pours really hazy dark murky burnt orange. Head is thin, about half a finger but retains very nicely.

Smell is pretty good. Tons of caramel malt, maybe some rye. Pretty malt forward with a fair amount of earthy herbal hops upfront and well.

Taste is better then the nose. Loads of sticky semi sweet caramel malt forward along with and almost dry citrusy hop flavor before the deep piney herbal and earthy hop oils and resin set in. Bitterness is relatively mild.

Mouthfeel is great. Tons of sticky malt gives this a moderate body. With all the hoppy oils and resin it gives this a much bigger body. Moderate carbonation cuts through it nicely and leaves it drinkable.

The Death By Viking is quite nice. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left some lacing. The scent was a piney hop. The taste had a nice full resiny finish with pine and some citrus flare. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Overall....YUMMY.

Pours a semi-transparent, dark rusty copper orange, with a lively off-white finger of foam that dissipates rapidly. There is a noticeable amount of sediment, though not off-putting.

Dark fruit, candied malts, burnt sugar, and some subtle pine and citrus to note.

Much more citrus in the flavor, resin, fig, grapefruit, orange rind, and some caramel and brown sugar sweetness.

Medium-heavy bodied, light carbonation, citrus and pine resin bitterness, candied malt sweet bomb, and semi-chewy.
