2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Samped on draft at the brewery this beer poured a black color with orange highlights and a medium sized creamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was malty, a bit roasty and had a moderate floral hops presence. The flavor was bitter, roasty and malty with moderate floral hops. Long hoppy finish. Medium body. Meh.

This aroma, great color, very very toasty, which detracts from the malt and hop quality.

Had on draft @ the Ellicottville brewpub in Ellicottville, NY .. . mild roast nose .. mild foam .. spotty lacing .. laid back mouthfeel .. a tame but very enjoyable brew . ya .. mild finish, light linger .. . . No, they only paid me to say it once, then they doubled it up on the soundtrack. … Cheap bastards.

Growler from Village Beer Merchant. Black bodied, with little head. Very little roast. It grows on me, all the elements, but rather understated black IPA. OK drinkability.

On tap at Old Toad. Pours a very dark with a small tan head. Aroma is piney with some roasted coffee and a little bit of citrus hops. Taste is excellent. Nice roasted malt goodness with good citrus and piney hops to balance. Nice and easy to drink.

On draught at the brewery. Pours a dark dark dark ass black colour with a a small tannish head a little bit of lacing here and there. Aroma is so damn strong. Smells like dope really, pretty awesome. A little pine in there too. Taste is hop bitter but not overpowering . Quite delicious.
