look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: brownish black. opaque but some lightness near the edges. a figure of a tan head that leaves a little bit of a spotty lacing

Smell: citrusy, black licorice, black malts. maybe a little bit of pine

Taste: opens up with black licorice. citrusy and some piney hops. ends with a burnt malts bitterness.

Mouthfeel: fairly light but some alcohol warmth

Overall: I am no fan of black ales, i thought if anyone could make one i like it was shorts. but this one still falls short.
