4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow! This is a VERY good brew. I’ve heard this refered too as a black IPA...its not. It’s more like a porter with a little more hop bitterness...but barely. Nose is roast malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Very full body with a chewy mouthfeel. Bittersweet hop and dark coffee aftertaste. Very unique....very tasty!

Bottle into fancy stout glass. Ok tan head. Black beer. Great aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, leather and some coffee. Taste is dry and quite bitter - almost aggressive. If they tones this down a notch and smoothed it out would be fantastic.
