radagast83 (6338) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle at Rustico Alexandria - staff let me have a sample pour of it from an open bottle, pretty nice of them. Poured a nice dark brown, almost black color with a small tan head. Aroma was notes of citrus, floral hops and a touch of nice roast. Flavor was a lot more roasty than I thought based on the aroma, but still pretty well balanced. Nice bitter notes, pretty tasty.

650ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Pours pitch black with a bubbly white head. Aroma of roasty malts, grassy hops, juicy fruitness, licorice and citrus. Taste is smooth, roasty and hoppy with notes of grass, licorice, citrus. Finish is dry, bitter, roasty and fruity with loads of licorice. Quite roasty black IPA, almost feels like an hoppy IS instead. Still very tasty and balanced, though.
