Bottle to IPA glass Consummation: Malty spruced molasses. Adjunct: Black, with a frothy 2 cm dark tan head; somewhat horsey nose, some citrusy fruitiness hidden in there too; some bite in the aftertaste

Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a nearly-opaque black colour with a short-lived head. Cool restrained hoppy aroma of seemingly English-style hops, roasty grains, faint ale yeast esters. Sadly, the taste didn’t live up to the smell, it was MUCH too bitter, muting all other flavours. Unpleasant balance overall.

Pours very dark with a dark tan head. The aroma has pineapple and funky oniony hoppiness. There is also some dark malt for balance. Medium smooth body with fairly gentle prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with pineapple hoppiness, non-bitter roasted malt, dark chocolate, tropical hops and light pine. The finish has more pine, some bittered malt, earthiness and light cream. A nice take on the style.

14 oz. draft at the brewpub before a SLU game. Pours a dark brown color with a finger-thick khaki head that hangs around for quite a while. Citra and simcoe hops pop out of the nose right away, with notes of earth, orange peel, toast, and roasted malts. I couldn’t pick out the Columbus hops as much, but I’m not as familiar with those so that’s probably why. The flavor was a nice balance of the same notes in the aroma- hops, earth, toast, roasted malts, brown sugar. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, toasty mouthfeel and medium-to-high carbonation. Solid black IPA, and just what I was in the mood for that night.
