On draught at the brewpub. Pours an opaque black color with a lasting fine-bubble head. Coarse hoppy aroma with slight coffee notes. Medium body and soft mouthfeel. Early, rich dark malt dryness with a late caramel note and sharp finish. A lot going on, some of it complementary.

Tap @ Chama River. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy, minty, piney hoppy, roasty chocolate malty aroma. Minty, roasty, burnt chocolate malty, piney flavor. Pretty tasty.

Draft at the source. Dark clear maroon color, thick brown head with good retention. Aroma of burnt bitter cocoa. Taste is burnt, roasty, toasty espresso, cocoa, bitter finish. Nice.

One of the best Black IPA’s I’ve had. It’s easy to drink, hoppy, and delicious. Looks to be a heavy stout but is actually very mild on the burnt, nutty taste, actually no nutty taste whatsoever.
