Keg at Gar Eden. Listed as a dark lager, but aroma is black ipa like, roast, chocolate, malty sweetness and something a little citrusy or sharp. Taste is more simple but good. Caramel sweetness, no hint of the hops. Strange. Nice though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Luppulo 12 labelled a Schwartz Black IPA. A dark brown pour with a foamy white head. The nose gives me dank hops & toasty dark malts. Medium bodied and smooth, the flavor is upfront coffee, then a nice mellow dose of hops. Good stuff. Exceptionally well balanced.
