On tap at FredFest 2013. Pours near black with a modest beige head and a heavy treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied blackstrap flavor with some licorice and a dry bitter finish. True to the style and very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Brewpub: Black, nice tan head and lacing. Nose of light soap and a touch of caramel along with the citrusy bright hops. The flavor is surprising, nearly no roast, just a faint chocolate note. Sweet yet balaced, plenty of hops in the flavor. Sticky, nice, strong.

Growler thanks to the Boise crew. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. An excellent fruity nose with light chocolates. The flavor comes across as a massive very fruity, light resiny hop forward brew, some lighter chocolate and roast. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured deep, almost black. Insanely citrus, hoppy nose. Acidic and high alpha bitterness that assaults the palate. Slightly roasted malts, but nearly completely muffled by the high IBUs. Not an unbalanced mess though.

On tap. Black pour with an off white top. Scent is citrus and pine with roasted malts. Taste is roasted malt and then a staggering amount of hops, piney bitter finish. Love it!

On Tap at the Brewpub pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. A nice hop aroma. It looks crazy a black double IPA. Very tasty

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Barley Browns in Baker City, OR (thanks to Tyler and Shawn for this one!)--Poured a bright orange amber body with a wispy white head and lots of legs on the glass. Hop monster with lingering bitterness and big floral presence. Not as overwhelming as their IPA with bittering hops. At least it didn’t seem that way until I got my growler home and my head starting tingling from all the alphas. Yum!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown clear with a small light tan head. Aroma of mostly hopps but a touch of dark roasted malts as wel. Flavor was like a lightly roasted IPA. Didn’t taste very "double"ish but an unusual combination of malts makes this IPA the color it is. Ballanced and mellow for a IIPA and goes down easy for what was explaind to us as "just under 10%" ABV
