I am getting to be quite the Southern Tier fan. All of their beers have been epic.
Wow, the nose of sweet grapefruit mixed well with the slight roastiness. The mouthfeel was medium-full with a slight astringency and effervescence. Up front the hops hit you with a GLORIOUS sweet, ruby red grapefruit and slight pine. This was followed by a mild roasted chocolate from the dark malts. Take their unearthly and add chocolate malts.
The slight astringency from the citrus hops teamed up with the faint chocolate to hang on and never let go.

Oddly it was not that warming.
Two words; Yum Yum.

Had this beer at my buddy Meterman's (Geoff) house. After this beer, one session lager and 1/2 bottle imperial homebrew, all I was good for was video games. Even that was a challenge.
Call it a black ale or call it a black IPA, just call me when you open one. I will be there.
