3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Confluence Brewing / Des moines IA --- Cloudy dark brown, good head cover, streamers of lace. Taste is solid roasted malt with caramel that drops hops into the palate; on subsequent swallows, the hops fade in and out like a distant AM radio station. A very interesting Black IPA....subtle, yet plenty of strength. Recommended.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a trsnslucent brownish-black from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma is pretty much all hops, but a slight toasted chocolate malts backbone. Taste follows, with a bittersweet finish. Damn good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared thanks to JCWatts. Pours out an attractive brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is of nice citrusy and fruity hops, light chocolate and some toasted grainy malts. Taste is complex, nice hop profile of citrus and light fruit grass, mild chocolate, some caramel and toasted malts all while having a decent hop punch. Solid

Pours dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Dark bread in the nose, grapes, pine. Medium sweet flavor with standard dark malts, light roast, juicy grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately earthy to finish with some ripened citrus fruits, mellow roast, toasted pine. Very drinkable

On tap a brewery pours a dark brown/black with a medium ran head. Sweet aroma with sharp piney hops. Smooth palate, piney hop bitterness throughout, dark malts, chocolate and caramel. Nice balance, never too hoppy or rich. Very pleasant and approachable for a style which usually seems to be extreme on hops or comes a across too Stout like.
