Thanks to nimbleprop for this guy! Rich brown pour, small frothy head with good lacing. Beautiful dank hop nose with weed and spruce tips, white grapefruit, lemon, loam, earth. Smooth, clean on the palate, but nicely bodied. This is quite good.

From a bomber. No idea how old this is because there's no date! Come on Houston! Dark black with a ton of frothy white head. Mouthfeel is very nice. Dry. Taste isn't very hoppy at all. But good dark malt flavors. Ok but not great. This may be too old.

Bomber to glass in the dark lord line. Really tasty spicy hops with a touch if dark malt. One of the better black IPAs I’ve had recently.

Bottle - Skunky hops and some roast. Jet black with a rich brown head. Light roast with a skunky hoppy note and a decent amount if bitterness. More hop forward than roasty but still nice.

Cask. Darkest amber, almost black, borders opaque. Thin off white head. Bitter. Middle is chocolate malt massaged to a gentle sweetness. Finish jumps in with a strong, but balanced bitterness.

Deep chalky brown with a tan foamy head. Spicy hoppy aroma. Malty body, creamy texture but bitter flavor with roasted malt. Pretty good.
