Pours black and thin with off white head. Lacing never goes away. Overly roasted malts flavor. Woody. Bitter chocolates. Good beer but I wouldnít want more than one.

Very good IIPA, but posibly an eeentsie bit over assertive (like that is a real problem with someone like me that enjoys the occasional slap in the face). I had on tap and the tow 4pks I managed to get before they disappeared from the shelves.
Now on to looking for # 4 or whatever comes next.

Yep, this is pretty much black. With a light brown head it appears very stout-like, but with a twist... Everything else. Do a blind taste test and youíd swear you were drinking an earthy, English style IPA, thick, sweet, and yet with a delicious American hop profile. Man, this has a great nose! Just donít look at it. Itís almost candy-like. The black color almost ruins the delicious moment.
In the mouth... Again! Itís an IPA! Thank God for brewers that make black IPAs that donít taste roasted. I love this. Itís thick, delicious, and even breast, with heavy sweetness, a soft palate, and a definitely more weighed down body thanks to some awesome yeast and grain bill. Love it.

On tap at the Draught House. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of roasted malt, as well as a hint of chocolate and some light hop character. The main hop flavors are floral with a bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour at Whip In. Black color with a thin white head that lingers. Sparse white lacing clings to the glass. Poured too cold to get a proper tasting, particularly on smell. Tastes of malts, a light roastiness and faint hops. Highly drinkable beer. I like it better than their Black Thunder.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2013 Pint glass at DH- solid black in color, formed a darkened tan head which did not go away, close to zero carbonation. Aroma of hops, Hops, and HOPS- like sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY. Follow? Good... and a heavily roasted malt. Hits the mouth with a high medium body, malt was nicely roasted to a dark tone with very little caramel shading (fucking eh, someone made a fucking beer for once in this godforsaken hellhole), solid hop wave in the middle, heavily acidic hop overburn on the finish. LIke I said before, and Iíll say it again, íbout time some in Texas made a fucking beer.

Black, clear, fluid. Head is small and vanishes quickly amd the beer.draws down clean. Musty aroma is enticing but turns socky when the beer warms. The flavor is a great balance of floral hop goodness and lightly roasted malt in the background which weakens when the beer warms. Good beverage.
