3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite a lot better than I was expecting. After trying and being unable to finish their kinda famous watermelon wheat, I wrote 21st Amendment off, but this was not bad at all.

Can from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Pours a dark cola. Aroma is burnt sugar, roasted malts, some pine resin. Taste is the same but a little watery on the finish.

Keg at Zeitgeist SF. Dark with red highlights, cream head that leaves good lace. Dank aroma, some dry roasty notes. Moderate sweet burnt sugar then resinous and floral hops, dry roast. Decent body. Good, but would like more fruit.

Dark copper, avg lace.
Medium body, thin texture, medium flavor, fairly long palate.
Ok, perhaps not my style.

Pours very light and golden...smells of hops and something else I can’t distinguish...ginger? Tastes refreshing with a clean aftertaste

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours almost opaque black into the glass, with the deepest of ruby fringes and an abundant eggshell head that leaves thick soapy lacing. Deep malty aroma, as well as a hop-forward presence. Flavors of rich roasted malt, coffee, nice peppering bitters, hints of floral and citrus hopping, toast and grains finish with a bold bitter presence. Smooth mouthfeel mellows out the end of the pull and provides a semi-creamy texture to the brew. This is a nice offering here. Complex and substantive, but quaffable and medium-bodied. Good job.

Can - Roasted malts and piny hops. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Roasted malts, molasses and light piny malts and bitterness. Rich malts and nice hoppy balance. Well done with a great balance towards the roast.

Canned and tasty. This is one of the better black IPAs. Not overly roasted so not so heavy. Plenty of hops and a good crisp finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of those craft beers that come in cans nowadays. Creamy, beige head over a near black beer with wine-red hue. Aroma of black coffee, salty liquorice candy, soy sauce, chocolate, vanilla, citrus peel, sweet tobacco, candi syrup, banana, caramel, leather, sherry. Sharp dark maltiness with fairly strong carbonation, slick, oily and granular mouthfeel, spicy, chocolatey, candied fruits, roasted bitterness increasing in strenght and assisted by bourbon-like, warming alcohol and citrussy hop bitterness in the finish. Very good example of its style.
