Wow. This beer is quite imaginative. GT2 described this as a cross between an imperial stout and a black IPA and that really nails it in my opinion as well. Dark black pour with almost no head. Resin, pine hop nose and in the taste with an orchestra of roasted malt balancing it. Pints three and four made the next day pretty rough, but this was a wonderfully crafted beer.

Short: A massive Black IPA of the gods

Origin: Tap at Churchill’s Size: 4oz taster Glass: Mini pilsner Price: $3-4 Date: 1/14/14
Long: Pours inky with fantastic espresso lacing. Nose is near Black IPA with big pine, excellent savory dark chocolate, black cherry, cherry cola. Taste is- Hot Damn- herbal pine hop bomb with some unfortunate grape soda character. Thankfully, that goes away to make way for bitter melted dark chocolate, chai tea spices, holiday spiced hot cocoa. Really an RIS and Black IPA mix.
Flaws: Hard to find
Skill: Exceptional

Felt like a cross between a good porter and a Belgian dark. Malts were toasty and thick with moderate sweetness, palate was bold, finish had hints of spices.

On tap at Beer Revolution. It pours black with a tan head. The aroma has lots of black cherry, raisins, blueberry, cocoa and roasted malt. The flavor is black cherry, cola, dark chocolate and roasty toasty malts. Very nice velvety mouthfeel. I would have called this an imperial stout, although a very weird one with lots of dark berry flavors. A very enjoyable sipper to say the least.

On tap at City Beer, Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a smoky chocolate flavor with a dry finish. Very tasty but a bit too smoky.
