look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle pours a dark, opaque amber color with a large cap of off-white head. Excellent retention and lace...a good looking brew.

Nose is caramel and toasty malt with a resinous, leafy hop aroma that leans herbal.

Taste is dark, burnt caramel maltiness, almost to dark chocolate levels. The hops are almost all on the bittering side, floral and long-lasting. It tastes pretty old school - old world hops, more bittering than taste/aroma hops and an earthy and char-esque maltiness. Mouthfeel is good, rich and well carbonated. Sweetness is pretty low. I actually am enjoying this, It feels like a tasty throwback to the early days of microbrews in the late 90's/early 2000's.
