Color: Like a deep brewed tea. Very dark, and quite reddish brown. Like a sunset shot from Apocalypse Now.
Belgian Lace: fleeting, but there.

Aroma: I can smell a comfortable, favorite couch. It’s a good smell.

Hoppiness: Biting and complex hoppy flavor. Bite: Wow. Packs a wallop.
Flavor: The oak is very much the source of flavor here – it adds a bit of depth to the brew.

Weight: This is quite heavy and feels like something of importance when you hold it.
Mouthfeel: exciting, tingling, and enticing all at once.
