4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 well this is an interesting one. the appearance is coca-cola dark brown with a nice light brown head. the aroma is.... interesting. There is pine and resin present, and also juicy mango and grapefruit. it?s very pleasant. Lots of citrus, resin, pine, and floral notes here. The slightest bit of roast is there, almost non-existent. The more I sip on it the more I like it. Nice sticky mouthfeel, too.

Roasted malt, slight fruit (grape) sweetness, with an underlying bitterness. Earthy tones. Dark chocolate color with a big tan foamy head. Nice lacing. Medium weight with mild carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black hue, zero visibility with almost fully lasting frothy dark khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Aroma of citrus and dark roasted malts. Heavy citrus and coffee taste up front with more of a dark roasted malt finish. Slick mouth feel. I usually like most everything from Lagunitas but couldnít get into this one.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. This pours as frothy as any beer Iíve seen, deep black and piled with foam. This has an awesome "American" aroma of the outdoors. I canít say Iím a big fan of this new "black IPA" thing, but this is ultimately a good beer. I think Iíd call it a hoppy porter ... gritty, a bit smoky, but topped with some west coast.

2015 version from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a deep brown with a nice beige head that lasts throughout. Lots of aromas going on with milk chocolate, resin, coffee and dark fruit all noticeable. Great carbonation with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. The chocolate really comes out in the finish. Good bitterness that lingers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black pour with a tight tan head. Very piney aroma with white grapefruit, roasted malts and a hint of smokiness. Flavor matches the aroma perfectly with a bitter sweet chocolate ending. Medium plus bodied with smooth carbonation
