3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a tan head.
Aroma has roast malt accompanied by pine hops.
The roast malt is held back in the flavor, allowing this to become a black IPA.
The roast malt is there, but not in a way that this makes you think itís a stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Deep brown with one finger head. Rich chocolate malt. Much less roasty than most other Black IPAs Iíve had, which is a nice change. Excellent hops. The flavors here are excellent, and yet I find myself with taste fatigue by the end of the bottle. I canít get into this style no matter how hard I try.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml). Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, resinous, tropical fruits and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet with roasted malt, pine, tropical fruits, caramel and a light bitter finish. Medium body. Slightly dry. Average carbonation. Good Black IPA. A tad watery on the finish, but well balanced and drinkable aplenty. I preferred Another One though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Pine, citrus, roast, a little earth and chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate carbonation, slight awkward finish as the malt and hops try to work things out with each other.

Black pour from bottle. Huge chocolate and cocoa taste. Coffee too. Smooth but still a pretty hoppy beer. Really enjoyable
