Pours nearly pitch black except for some deep reddish highlights when held to the light,a full one finger tannish colored head atop that clung nicely to the glass as it settled.Piney hops stand out most in the nose along with some of the spicy rye,dark fruit, and bitter chocolate,to me it's very much hop forward.Flavors have a dark bread component to go along with mild roast and earth,there is just a light shot of piney hops,to me the dryness-earthiness is the main flavor profile,only light brown sugar-like sweetness in the finish.To me it's a hopped up porter but I like it,I like it alot.Just solid,no compaints here.

12oz bottle into a FW tulip.

Pours a dark black with a nice beige head. Smell is very much like an imperial stout... i get a ton of roasted malts...but also with a good amount of hops in there as well. Taste is more of the same and very reminiscent of a hopped up imp stout, as opposed to a more IPA forward taste that you see in most other beers of this style. I definitely prefer it this way! Full bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall a surprise treat for me as a big stout guy. Recommended!
