Yowza, lots of stuff going on with this beer. Really nice balance between pronounced hop and malt flavors; you get a melange of pine, dark fruits, & floral hops complimenting and contrasting molasses, cocoa, & roasted malts. Nothing overpowers or dominates the palate. You'll have to keep an eye on this one, along with tasting great, it clocks in at 8.1% abv without any alcohol warmth or taste. I'll be buying this again, for sure.
