3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an excellent beer. But not as a Black IPA. Appearance is a large, long lasting, tan head, some lace, and a very dark, but clear cherry wood color. Aroma is earth, fruit, malt, cocoa, yeast. Flavor’s like aroma with carbonic tang, bit of sweet up front, then just enough bitter from malt, yeast, hop to balance with generally a good finish except a slight medicinal cast. Body is good tho boozy. I really like this beer.
