3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 (Bottle). Very nice and fresh hop aroma with a solid foundation of roasted malt, slightly smoky with hints of licorice. Great taste of roasted malt and licorice with distinct flavors from the hops. In some respects reminiscent of a Porter. Absolutely superb beer!

Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry roasted, leafs, dark malts, hops, minerals, licorice, weeds, grass, bark, hints of soap. Taste is dry foresty, weeds, hops, leafs, dark malts, pine needles, grass, minerals, bark, sour coffee, licorice. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour--a good start. Thin foamy ivory head. Lovely nose with some black malty depth and a touch of molasses and lots of roast. Slightly earthy bitter on the aroma as well. Smooth and balanced flavor full of black malt roast, lovely earthy and leafy hop presence, dark cacao, a semisweet malty body, and a slightly earthy finish. Pleasant, but nothing out of this world.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark brown-black; huge head. Aroma is dry stout. Flavor is burnt cookies and chili peppers. Slick and oily. This style is really hard to pull off and they nail it. Not as hoppy as you might expect.

Black IPA, or APA would be more fitting. Plenty of hops, six different, including the archetypical American varieties Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo.
Nice mix between an APA and a brown ale.
