3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Great Lakes: Almost completely black with a foamy khaki head, lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus peel, roasted malts, burnt chocolate, & some coffee. Flavor is amped up with a stronger malt base. Cocoa dust, heavy oily coffee beans, light charred ash, dark chocolate. Nice overtones of pine, hop resins, & bitter citrus pith, leading to a dark malt finish. Really nice black IPA.

Pint at GLBC on 5/3/14. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, some chocolate and grassy hops. Malty flavor giving way to grassy hops, then turning to chocolate sweetness and roasty malt before an earthy finish.
