Dark black in color, clear with a thin tan head. Decent amount of hops. Light dark malt backing this was a easy drinking brew lacked a few of the good Black IPA qualities I am used to.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep dark cola coloured body, not fully black, at about 75% opaque with a very thin, oily tan head - not good looking, really. Aroma of roasted malt, earth, licorice, mushrooms and a bit of hops - not much though. Medium to Full-bodied; Meaty, full earthy flavour with a lot of Worcestershire sauce flavours, some soy sauce, some roasted malt and a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows some caramel and toffee, but the overwhelming earthy and meaty flavours just show too much. Overall, not such a great beer, especially for the style. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods (Bowery) in New York, New York on 25-November-2011 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 11-April-2012.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from EtreGourmet webshop, shared with tmrmwel and a bunch of people in VANŘ Bergen. Pours a deep brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma is very faint, some malty tones only. Taste is roasty coffee notes, dark malts and hints of burnt rubber. Where are the hops? The aroma? The flavor? Black IPA? This is just kinda dull. Not bad, just dull.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours thin and black (duh) witha small off white head. Nose is not to bitter smelling. Chocolate, caramel, coffee, walnuts and a little grass. Taste is sweet. To sweet. Bitter comes through on the finish but it's to little to late. I think this may be an older bottle or a mishandled one because of come to expect a lot from this brewery. However it still tastes good, just not on par for the style. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light bodies with a long aftertaste.
