3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Pours a dark brown with a big pillowy light brown head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is roasted malts and piney floral hops with a bit of leather and spice.
The flavor is roasted malts and sweet chocolate with a good amount of piney bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, one of the best Black IPAs I’ve had. It has a good balance of sweeter malts, roast and hops.
