Bottle shared by sloth... Brown pour, decent head. Nose of some slight chocolate, roasted malts with a piney undertone. Taste is close to the nose. Intially you taste the roasted malts, light chocolate... then a nice hoppy (pine) taste comes through... Medium body, a little ashy and dry. Overall. Decent Black IPA... Thanks bert for the beer!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a 2 finger, chunky tan head that has great retention and leaves nice chunky sheets of lacing.. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, maybe a touch of tropical fruit cocktail, chocolate, roast, nuts and burnt sugar. Flavor is roast, roasted nuts, chocolate, medium roast coffee beans, citrus, booziness, pine and a burnt sugar, char, bitter hops and pine finish. Palate is medium bodied, creamy on entry and has a boozy slickness to the somewhat drying finish. Really too boozy for 7% and the hop and malt profiles clash a bit. Still, not bad overall, and it looks damn pretty.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Plainfield MWBF. Pours blackish brown with a tan head. Nose is intensely hoppy, but not really a great combination of hops. Quite resiny and piney with a slight roast note in the background. Very hop forward. On taste, intensely bitter and a strong astringency from the roasted malt is dominant. This is overly bitter and shows no balance. Thin bodied. Not a fan.
