The beer is pleasant and not too heavy. I like this beer and buy it occasionally, but I have to say, the resin/piney character gets to be a bit much for me.

A: poured into pilsner glass. dark, almost black. 1/2 inch head looks nice and foamy from the top. The side view shows large bubbles.

S: Hops, mostly the herby piney variety. No citrus. Some vanilla or caramel undertones.

T: Hops too but the dark flavors come through more in taste than smell. Coffee and leather. Not much that's sweet.

M: pretty light on the tongue. Lasts just long enough and than dissipates quickly to a slight lingering hoppiness.. Strong carbonation.

O: aggressively hopped black ale. Would make a great transition from summer to fall. A friend sent this my way and I'm glad he did.
