3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Pours very dark garnet red, clear, with a 2-finger frothy/creamy light brown head. Aromas of cocoa and roasted malt, earthy notes (leaves, bark), some vanilla, coffee, and slightly sweet Tootsie Roll notes. Flavors of bitter roasty malt, sweet caramel, and mocha. Medium carbonation and body, with a dry finish. Easy-drinking; good.

On tap at Cloverleaf. The Black IPA phenomenom continues. Pours a dark amber brown color with an off white foam head. Has an aroma of caramel, roast, and citrus. Has a sweet smoky taste with a decent hop hit. Has a medium mouthfeel.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap @ Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md-Dark brown pour w/a moderate head. Burnt malt aroma. Started out w/a little bit of a stout flavor, some roasted malt/caramel, but that was soon overwelmed by a very bitter hop flavor. These two flavors just did not blend well for me, gave it a burnt malt flavor which I just didn’t enjoy. I enjoy a nice balanced IPA, even a Black IPA; this isn’t it. Long bitter, burnt finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As expected this is very black with a tan head. The head left very nice lacing. Roasty malt nose. Big full palate, rich roasty flavor. Malt is nice and balanced. Roast lingers but it’s not overpowering. Very satisfying on all fronts.

Not a big fan of black IPAs and this one might be bottom of the barrel. I would most likely pass on this one next time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very deep and dark red hue with thick white lacing. Medium coffee nose that is pretty straight forward. The palate also has a nice creamy coffee aspect to it with a nice cascadian hop finish. Not as full bodied as other black IPAs. Almost a little bit to easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - the aroma isn’t overly present. Sort of disappointing. What I did discern was hops of course, dark malts, and a little roast.
Appearance - appearance is jet black, with a thin white head that dissipates and turn into a halo. The beer also has a lacing that follows down the glass.
Taste - the taste has rich dark malts, and well balanced hops.
Palate - the feel is medium in body, ranging from creamy to slick in feel. The finish is nicely bitter, not over the top.
