Black ipa with solid malt and rye profile. I don't pick up the chocolate that others have mentioned, which means it isn't overpowering or out of place. Very good beer. On my list of go to beers.

Pours black. Aroma- piney citrus, chocolate, and a bit of spicy rye. The taste combines these flavors extremely well. You get the citrus hops chocolate and the rye. You can taste each one individually, but they all blend extremely well together. Great beer.

Bottle at home. Pours an opaque dark brown with a frothy beige head and lacings. Sweet and quite bitter. Hoppy aromas of spruce and some citrius fruit. Also some aromas of roasted malts towards the end. Hints of resin. Medium bodied. Medium carbontion. Bitter finish.

Equal parts roast and dry fruit. The rye gives it a smooth, oily sip. The nose is kinda muted at first, but really shows itís teeth after awhile. Quite happy with this one!

From a bomber. Pours very very dark opaque brown with a bubbly tan head. Lots of lacing. Smooth feel with medium body and carbonation. Tastes like delicious coffee, earth, bourbon, molasses. Smells very earthy, woody, like alcohol.

Standard bearer of this style, truly. Perfectly executed. "Black malt" flavor? Yes. Perfect. Hops flavor? Perfect. Balanced? Perfectly. Try this first. Remember it. Then judge everything else against it. Solid A.

Wow, this is a stunner! Iíve never found a black IPA Iíve been a fan of, but this is a different creature. The intensity of the hops is tamed by the dark toastiness, but the aromas and sticky sweet spice are still in the foreground, as dark molasses heft brings a dynamic weight that most IPAs will never muster.
