Black pour with a thin head. Very toasty aroma, almost smokey. Some pine and lots of roasted malt. A dry bitterness that’s very pleasant.

Pretty good, but I get a clash of flavors between what I think is black patent malt & hops. Sharp. It’s still pretty good butthe clash is obvious.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Nose is malty, spicy, plummy. Taste really nice of caramel, dark berries, plums and brown sugar. Nice creamy texture. Well done.

Pours a hazy medium brownish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.

On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s (5/5/15). Fresh hoppy nose, floral and resiny. Smoky chocolate malt with some heavy aromas. Very fragrant. Dark black-brown opaque with light tan creamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with light tang, big hop flavor with chocolate and roasted malts. Molasses, coffee. Sweet tangy resin-like finish with roasted bitter after.

This black IPA poured a nice black colour with a really foamy, tan coloured head. Scents include grass, spruce and roasty malts. First swig was nice and roasty with a good balance between hop and roast. Finish was medium bitter with nice grassy notes lingering with the burntness...

Too damn piney. Tastes like a dark IPA or something. But hey, I don't like traditional IPAs so there's that.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1275 - 07.10.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Pours a California back alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the hoppy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.
