3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Real. Hazy brown pour with a short beige head leaving moderate lace. Nose is pretty malty for a black IPA, with choclate, caramel and pine notes. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pine, toffee, chocolate, charcoal and a touch of brandy. Finish is long and chocolatey, with a touch of charcoal on the far end. Not my favorite black IPA, but competent. I’d like to see a stronger and more complex hop profile.
