4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle purchased online at Northwest Liquid Gold and shared with my wife. Pours just about black with a moderate luscious brown head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and left extensive lace. The aroma is wonderful with a combination of malt, molasses and pine that is just excellent. The flavor is malt with a bit less molasses than the aroma, pine and fruity grapefruit. Moderate bitterness at the finish is not overdone and compliments the lingering malt flavor nicely. This is a delicious Black IPA, and man do I wish I bought more than one bottle!

Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has strong notes of chocolate combined with medium notes of alcohol and flowery hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, and flowery hops, leading to a dry cocoa finish. The alcohol is tickling the tongue.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out pitch black with a light chocolate milk-brown head, very thick, much like a stout. And the aroma is super enticing. Deep green grassy hops, with just a hint of cocoa and molasses. Taste is out of the ordinary indeed, as this is my first Black IPA and I didnít know what to expect. Massively hopped, yet not too bitter. Odd. The molasses from the nose comes back, with a certain nuttiness and smoked toffee. Same bitterness as a harsh porter, but with a greater hop profile. Odd, yet delicious! I can see myself liking this style. Supremely balanced with enough of a malt backbone to combat the hop onslaught, and easily drinkable. Velvety and smooth texture. Just a good beer. The only downside is that the finish has a certain sour quality about it.
