Poured out a jet black color with a small, tan head of bubbly foam. It smelled of chocolate and roasted malts. A touch of resiny pine aromas, too. It tasted of bitter piney hops with a nice chocolate and toffee backbone. Some sweet caramel, too. It was medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

not a bad beer right here, a little different than the way they usually flow, but i liked it rather well. this place is awesome too, great vibe, and i think good things are coming in terms of the beer, but they are still very new. a little murky and thin this one looks, without a ton of head on it. the aroma is pretty intense though, and i like that, black pepper and spicy vegetal hops, chocolate malt more than deep roast but a little of that charred low end too, and a mild piney element later on thats very attractive. the mix of the spicy hops and the very bitter dark malt is great, makes this somewhat intensely flavored, and its good, it just needs a little cleaning up. the feel is thin, and there is a little sediment here, yeast or hop bits im not sure, and i dont quite think the dark malts and roasted barley are in ideal proportion, but they arent way off either. this is a really tough style to do well, and i think the flavors are there, but more body is needed, more carbonation would be nice, and a little more nuance would set it off. on its way to being something quite delicious i think...
