Bottle thanks watson1977. Pours brown with a foamy soapy off white khaki head that rests to a spotty film and some lacing. Aroma is slight chocolate and coffee. Taste is mellow but noticeable bitter hops with a coco malty backbone and some coffee. Palate is medium and chalky and finishes dry.

Bottle date 7/7/11. Poured black with a creamy tan head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Floral aroma with a backing of roast. The flavor found pine, floral, and roasted malt. Medium boy, medium bitter, yet a malt aftertaste.

Wow, did I like this beer. It was a really solid IPA. it had a good dark malt body but it was too malty like some black IPA’s. The use of hops in this one was splended. It had a nice bitterness and a good finish. Tasty offering

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of light dry roasted malt notes with semi bitter hops profile. Taste is also a mix between some roasted malt notes with dry notes and some medium bitter hops flavours. Body is a bit light with good carbonation. Not bad though hops flavours could have been more upfront.

Opens up like a handful of fresh hops. Pours a deep black with frothy tan head. Taste is deceptively smooth. The hop flavor is very subtle and blends in nicely with the dark roasted malts. The hops mix with the smokiness giving it a roasted floral note. Dry finish as well.
