12 ounce can courtesy of TheHOFF43. Thanks! Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, mild floral hops. The taste is roasted malts, nuts, dark chocolate, herbal almost piney hops. Medium bodied.

Tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Black with tan head that sticks around for drinking enjoyment. Roasted malt and some citrus hops on the nose. Some smoke. Taste is pretty standard black IPA but it’s above average. Lots of hop with a roasted malt backbone. Little chocolate and coffee. Really enjoyable hop-centric effort that is a good flagship for the brewery. I’d purchase with my one last silver dollar.
