4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very good beer! Poured at a good temperature with a nice, fluffy, foamy, tan head that slowly settled down and some lace. Color is a clear garnet. Aroma is hop, malt, roast, fruit. Flavor’s like nose; fairly dry, bitter and carbonic tang up front, with the bit of malt/fruity sweet in back. Body and carbonation good, although there’s a little astringency in the finish. Also the finish is quite long, boozy, and resinous.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is balanced between chocolate, roast, citrusy hops, and dark caramel. The flavor leans towards the Porter qualities I’d say, but there’s still plenty of juicy citrusy hop though. Lingering chocolate, coffee, and roast on the finish. Medium bodied with a slight cling on the back end. Soft fizzy carbonation level. Decent beer, but not an all-star in the style.

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of hops, citrus, and roasted malt. Taste is delicious, nice roasted malt and chocolate balanced nicely with the hops and citrus tones which lead to the bitter, hoppy finish. Very good black IPA

(Thanks to Ken for the bomber) Aroma of sweet malts and fruity hops combined with hints of caramel. A mahoney pour with a thin, mostly deminishing, off-white head and moderate lacing. Initially, the taste is sweet malt with nods to toffee, followed by some grain, and concluding in a bitter finish which continues into the aftertaste. Medium body and medium body. Overall, a nice dance of sweet and bitter.
