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.

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.

Really good floral aromas and great taste. Nice beer. Hides the alcohol well.

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.

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.

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 couldn’t get into this one.
