Big black and brown pour yield a 1" + head of tan. Lacing was superb. Aroma gave off more dark fruit bitterness than roast or dry hopping.

Taste imparted caramel sweetness, some minorly roasted chococlate malt, didn't hit those bitter notes I was expecting. Hides alcohol well.

For being advertised as a dry hopped beer and whatnot, I was underwhelmed, but yet impressed at its body and ability to not be oppressive with the alcohol.

May 2010 bottling date

A: into a pilsner-ish glass: nearly translucent dark brown-black body with a couple of fingers of tan head that laced the glass nicely

S: dark roasted malts and crisp hops

T: bittersweet dark malts, roastiness; smooth and bitter hops; undercurrents of cocoa, caramel; herbal, earthy, musky, smoky

M: dry, bitter, light, mellow, lingering aftertastes of smoke and roasted malt

O: not a beer designed for extended cellaring, but this incidentally aged bottle was quite fresh tasting and enjoyable - if it was better than this before, it must've been pretty amazing then - refreshing and drinkable, not too filling, great flavors and feel - wonderful hop action
