12 oz can. Pours brown with fluffy, beige, never ending head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, toasted malt and some dark fruit. Body is full and tangy. Taste is of citrusy hops, toffee, coffee, vanilla and dark fruit. Finish is medium and not too hoppy. I was not a fan of the style, but after this brew I might start liking it.

Great malt aroma of coffee and wood. Deep, dark black with a creamy caramel colored head. Flavor is a nice balance between piney hop notes and a slight malt sweetness. Quite good.

On tap at anotheroom. Love it. The citrus hoppy notes of a west coast IPA with a roasty malt. Fairly light bodied and bitter.

Can. Dark brown pour, big foamy tan head. Citrus hop aroma. Citrus, caramel and biscuit in the taste. Simple but tasty black IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with big foamy tan head. Piney hop aroma. Taste is dominated by floral-piney hops. Balanced by a hearty dark malt backbone. Notes of dark fruit and roasted malt. Better than expected.

This rules as my current favorite (often a short-lived crown). Just a really well-executed Black IPA. Great balance between malt and hops. Lively carbonation distinguishes it from many Porters. Medium body. Just a well-balanced effort.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black clean looking with some surface foam, leaving really no lace. Smells of sweet leather, tobacco and some smoky malts. Some sharp hops in there as well. Medium bitterness and good dry malt flavor with nuts and toast. Some slight piny, resiny hops. The body is medium with moderate carb. The finsh is surprisingly wet compared to others in the style I’ve tried. Decent enough beer, drinkable over and over. Easy to approach.

Something a little different, but really surprised by the combo..kind of a cross between an ipa and a porter..the dark malts really pair well with the hops, yielding a bitter, then dry/malt finish..good job 21st..
