On tap at the Boise BP Murky looking dark brown with a full thick and lasting light tan head. Deep woody hop aroma and flavor. The roasted flavors are complimentary and the palatte is thick, almost chewey. A very full CDA with some nice trailing piney hoppiness.

Yumm, on tap at the brewery in Boise. Pitch black with a dark brown head. Pine aroma, that was apparent at first taste. Nice malt background that finished with a big hop bitter aftertaste.

Tap at 10 Barrel in Bend, OR. Pours a clear, cola red. Nice tan foam. Nose is fresh pine, caramel, butterscotch. Taste is pine, roast, sap, spices. Fairly aggressive as it should be. Balancing hop bite. Pretty solid.

On tap at platypus pub. Deep brown with ruby highlights capped by a ridiculous off white cap that doesn't go away fast. It's leaving a volcanic peak surrounded by frothy lacing. Eventually reduces to a pizza-cheese bubbly island. Aroma of dusty, earthy hops. Taste is roasty citrus malt, balanced with a nice sweetness. Late dry finish.

Big dark grainy malt backbone. Sweet and rich with complex malt profile replete with wood and smoke. Light molasses notes and a bit of toffee with a some holiday spice character. Sharp hop presence of pine and citrus with floral accents.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ 10 Barrel... Poured dense, opaque, near black with a khaki head. Aroma of earthy spiced hops. Good carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Nice malt characters that had roast, sweetness, and biscuit qualities. Following with bitter hops that we’re pine-like, citrus, woodsy, earthy. Finished with hops and low esters. Solid for the style.

Draught. Black with thick white head. Light hop aroma, and that fuzziness I like in black IPAs. Full bodied. there is hop with citrus and pine, there is roast malt under the hop. Hoppy finish, BTB I got the last pint at the Dragon of this.
