Dark and chewy, with a nice mocha meets grapefruit thing going on on the nose and the palate. Super solid black ipa from a brewer I expected less from.

after4ever (6577) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Draft at the Issaquah Brewhouse. Pours jet black with a loose tan head. Big sweet pine and candied orange nose...sugars coming very much from the hops here but still presenting an overall effect of sweetness with very little pith or bitterness present. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty toasty mid-palate with lots of sweet hop oil above that, washing out into a candied fruit finish. Has to be the sweetest black ipa Iíve tried. Pleasant, but far from the expected dryness, roastiness, and bitterness.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Deep cola in color, large frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Combination burnt malts, lactose, pine, hops, charred wood, and campfire on the nose.   Not as malty as the nose suggested, moderate hops, slight bitterness, a little charred wood/peat background.   Has a bit of cow pasture and minor astringency.   Finishes fairly clean tho.   Has a decent amount of sweetness, comes across as a bit of pine and lactose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but does feel its on the thin side.   It almost needs to be more hoppy, more malty, and sweeter.   This seems like a Black Pale Ale almost.   Otherwise, not bad, a little simple for this new style.   Perhaps a good gateway example.

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Draught @ brewpub. Nice cloudy copper pour covered by a delicate light beige head. A strongly aromatic, very toasty, caramel laden ale with a fun roasty twist that adds a roasted grain side that would fit in a big brown ale. Thatís not what we have though, hereís a hop-forward, punchy Portland ale. Strong and perfumey, fresh, citrusy, resinous hops bring plenty of bitterness to balance out the caramel. Very good stuff, whose freshness is deployed on the tongue and provides the most effective cleansing, effective carbonation that makes the whole ensemble very easy-going. Feels much better than the sum of its parts. In one phrase, this is what Lagunitas probably aims for under 40 different labels.

In short: A ruby ale with restrained hopping. A few nice things, a few problems. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving the bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is dank hops, spicy leafy hops as well as some fresh basic chinese tea notes. This is not a home bomb. Taste is low roastiness, a cold cup of coffee, soft red liquorice candy, light caramel, iced-tea, hard-candies, cold green tea, milk chocolate an some cocoa powder, chalk. Hopping is rather restrained. Leafy, tea-ish, tobacco, and a tiny bit piney. Bitterness level is below average for the style. This is not a hop bomb and nor is it malt heavy. Finish is annoyingly chalky. Overall I thought it was an ok beer but certainly not something I will seek-out again. Another bomber I drank alone while at home. They say that for an alcoholic it is hard to admit that you drink alone because it is a sign you are an alcoholic. But I donít have a problem with that. Itís admitting that I drink alone because nobody loves me that I have a problem with.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this beer. The beer pours a dark brownish-red color with a white head. The aroma is strong resiny hops with some roasted malt. The flavor is resiny hops with just the lightest amount of roasted malt. Still, this beer is all about the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
