3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the original brewpub. Pour is slightly hazy brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Huge roasty, grapefruit, cocoa, light coffee, and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is coffee, toffee, grass, bread, cocoa, and earthy hops with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice Black IPA.

Simply is not as good as other CDA’s/ Black IPA’s. Poured a dark brown, but for some reason the head was inches deep no matter how carefully i poured it. Taste was fairly boring. I don’t recommend this.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2011 Heavy brown in color, with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh picked flowers, earthiness, and roasty black malt, with maybe some soft tones of orange zest. Taste had some black malty earthy sweetness followed by a clean grassy hop finish. Very light nuttiness in the middle, I think. Very balanced with a slight cloy at the start. Dry finish, earthy, and not very bitter. At least, not as bitter as I expected.

Bottle @ Beer Connoisseurs Tasting in FoCo. Dark brown appearance with a tan head. Chocolate malty aroma with a mild piney hoppy nose. Pretty mild piney hoppy, mostly chocolate malty flavor. I’d like to see a stronger hop presence.
