A - Pitch black, opaque, tan head, full and pillowy, persistent. Major major lacing. Pretty.

S - Pine is full and front. A bit of dark roast. Dusty minerality.

T - Blast of pine, minor hits of grass, a suggestion of roasty black coffee that becomes a bit more prominent as the beer warms, and a bitter line to the close. This line hints at aspirin, which is its only real misfire, but the rest of the journey is quite solid.

M - Sharp and drying, but fades quickly.

O - A strong, powerful beer. The hop starts to tilt beyond bitter, but I still find the experience a good one.
