3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. A dark brown beer topped by a dense, two-finger off-white head. Pleasant piney and resiny nose with lemon and some roasted malts. A touch of coffee too. Quite bitter, full-bodied and semi-dry on the palate, with flavors of roasted malts in the back. Piney and lemon-peelish, and quite bitter towards the end. Although a bit on the roasted side, it’s a pleasant beer indeed. 120818

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown in color, nearly black, with a light tan head. Nose is a bit sweet with licorice, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and very light hoppiness. There’s some caramel and molasses in there, maybe a bit of an earthy hop note. The flavor is quite sweet with lots of molasses and toffee. Decently roasty with a light hop bitterness on the finish as well as some chocolate. Not a huge fan of this kind of Black IPA.
