Tap at Papago. Pours a hazy near black color with a foamy tan head. Aroma of pine and soapy hops, roasted malt and wood. Flavor starts slightly sweet and roasty and gives away to the lightly bitter hops. A decent brew.

Had this draft beer during the 7/4 beer tour 2014 at Hollywood Gardens/Brixton. Nice looking dark beer. Smell is dull b/o of your favorite mate. Yes, dark attributes carry over to the flavors. Definitely has lots of IPA for a backbone. Yes, typical big dull medical black ipa finish. Lasts & lasts well after the session.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma is a nice balance of roast, chocolate, and piney hops. Taste follows, dry and bitter, but the roast opens up more as it warms up. Very nice balance, good carbonation, better than I was expecting.
