COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep, dark and medium-bodied. Mt. Hood and liberty hops add slight hop aroma and flavor to this malty ale hat finishes with chocolate and roasted barley undertones.

On tap at the brewpub. Fairly thin dark brown pour, with just a thin head to it that’s gone in a flash. Nose is fairly understated, but somehow seems like it wants to be more vibrant: trace of molasses, nascent dry hops, stale coffee. Body is a bit thin, no surprise there, but the flavors are a bit more substantial than initial expectations, with a relatively dry hop character that seems to complement the chocolate malts that underlie things. Decent effort.

Draught from Lennie’s. Black beer with a touch of ruby in the edges and a lacing, jiggling tan head. Nose light roast, strong fruit, medium-malty. Sticky lips ahead! Sticky-malty body and taste starts mildly fruity and sweet but dries out to a hint of ash and roast and black patent, low bitterness and low mellow-harshing. Medium-body comes at you in waves of malt and also has a slight, pleasant tang. Low hop crispness. Not really a black IPA, more a a generic undefined American Dark Ale, but I can drink it!
