The best of both worlds hoppy and malty. Aroma is like coffee spiked with hops wtf this is a goat. Black in color with a large tan to medium brown head. Aroma malts,hops,coffee and alcohol. Starts out hoppy and bitter then roasted malts and coffee with a hoppy and bitter finsh that dares you to take another drink. If I had this for breakfast I would never go to work!

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours pitch black with a nice soapy milk chocolate head. Nose is cacao and espresso with some grassy and light citrus notes. Taste is a coffee bomb followed by lots of fresh cut grassiness. There is also a nice chunk of cacao. Very dry on the palate. This is by far the best black IPA I’ve had. Fantastic!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the grandparents- pours opaque black with huge fluffy brown head that settles eventually into a dense ring. Perfect tulip pour. Roasted coffee beans, chocolate malts, some piney hop resin from the simcoe, just appetizing borderline black IPA but the coffee is just right without being astringent and the hop resinous bitterness doesn't overpower. Perfection with this white chocolate cheesecake. Need to workout after this pairing but crap, it's good

Great aromas and flavors of black malts, coffee and piney hops. Truly black with a solid weight but not too heavy. Blended very well.

From notes on 5/29. Didn’t really care for the smell. To me, it smelled like dirt. Really through my experience off. Had a nice thick black body. Awesome coffee taste. The smell though, I just couldn’t get past it.

Black color with medium brown head. Aroma has roasted malts and coffee, with a marked grassy and citrus hops. Taste follows the aroma, roasty/toasty flavour, with coffee, dark chocoate, some molasses and the same citrus and grassy/herbal characters. Bitterweet aftertaste. Really good.
