3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler pour via lagunitas fan. Clear mohogany with a smidgen of cherry wood in the color, soapy tan head. Smells like roasted malt...like in a dry stout with a touch of acid around the edges. Flavors again are dry and roasty...yeah, that’s pretty much all I got. Flavorful yeah, clean enough...not offensive..ok.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap a barely translucent reddish sable with a nice pale tan head that leaves behind substantial lacing. Aroma is smoky and malty with a coffee tone and some subtle nuttiness. Smoky roast coffee flavor has nutty, caramel and toffee hints. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, rather pleasing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of roasted and pale malts plus a little chocolate, floral hops, and some dough-like notes. Flavor the same, with not a lot of hops for a black IPA, but a nice blend still. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle. Pours out a dark brown topped with a small soapy head. Aroma was of roast, a little brown sugar sweetness, some fruit notes, and a little grain. Taste was much as the aroma with the roast malts leading the way, well balanced with a little bitterness. My first brew from 10 Barrel turned out pretty good in my opinion for what that is worth.
