A: Appearing black from afar, dark reddish hues are noticeable near the bottom of the glass when it is brought near a light source. A very slight amount of carbonation is visible. It poured with a thin light tan colored head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow color around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark roasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrus and pine resin hops.
T: Flavors of dark and roasted malts stand out in the overall taste along with some hints of burnt malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness and this lingers through the finish. No traces of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather easy to drink—neither the roasted flavors nor the bitterness are overpowering in any ways.

12oz bottle expiration date 7/13. Pours into a glass, dark black no light getting through. Dark tan frothy head that sticks around a while. Strong hop presence upfront with hints of chocolate on the back end. Some nice lacing left on the glass. An enjoyable brew for sure.
