Draft at Slows Bar B Q. Pours near pitch black with a small foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma is light roasted coffee, chocolate, grapefruit, and grassy hops. Tastes decent, nice mix of coffee, chocolate and grapefruit hops. Kinda thin a little watery though. The flavors are not as fresh as they should be. Overall, an ok Black IPA.

On tap. Pours an opaque black with a dense foamy coffe colored head. Bright aroma of hops, coffee notes. Very full body, slight carbonation makes for broad & smooth feel. Wonderfully balanced initial salty mellows to sweet with a smooth finish. Really nice take on an IPA.
