Real hoppiness for a darker beer

Pours more copper brown than black. Tight 2 fingers of foam with significant lacing. Smell and taste is earthy. Grass and citrus but solid malt backbone. Mouth feel is full and smooth, which is the main thing making it distinctive from an American IPA. If I were blindfolded I would never suspect this was a dark brew.

Almost fruity aroma, dark in color between brown and espresso, with a bubbly foaming head. Chocolate bitterness but accompanied by a licorice like flavor, again almost fruity. Surprisingly light bodied. Refreshing and smooth.

Way too bitter. Label says it "evokes chocolate and coffee on the nose and palate." I tasted neither. And it stayed heavy from start to finish, anything but the "light bodied finish" it describes.
