Dark brown with a creamy brown slowly fading topper and flare lacing. Aroma is dark and malty with a nice hoppy backbone. Citrus, some pine along with mildly roasted malt and caramel. Taste is dark and hoppy but not up to snuff. Caramel, citrus, light chocolate and mild alcohol burn.

Not a bad beer, just that it tastes like they took their loose cannon ipa and mixed in a porter. No real thought behind it, just that they figured the black ipa was a big seller right now and made the closest thing they could.

Pint from Frisco Grille. Thought I had missed this beer but luckily Frisco had it on tap again. Very dark brown with white head, Citrus aroma. Malty flavor with some smokey notes. Citrus hop finish but not overpowering bitterness. Very nice brew.

Pours black with a great head on there. Aroma is hoppy with a degree of carmel. Taste is smoky goodness. The hops were a bit piney.Really enjoyed the balanced flavors and hops. Clean finish and worth a try if you get a chance.

A nice mix of styles. Almost a hopped up porter. The piney hops cuts through a nice dark roast. At times you are pulled in two directions. But then a clean finish wraps things up leaving you asking for more.
