3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours a deep brown color with a small light tan head that falls to a ring. Piny and hoppy in the nose with lingering hints of roasted malts and char. Bitter and piny up front with some sticky resin and a touch of citrus fruit. Light sweetness before the malty backbone kicks in. Roasted malts and charred hints with some caramel and chocolate. Finishes bitter and dry. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Tap at Standard Pint. Pour is clear cola, pretty deep with fluffy tan foam. Good lacing. Roasty and musty nose with some soil and wet earth. Taste is dirty, a bit gritty, lots of soil. Palate is tangy, potting soil. Eh.

Nice looking almost black with a small creamy tan head. The aroma is mostly pine with a bit of citrus. The flavor has a hint of roast malt and a ton of hops. A big hop after taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. fresh hops and medium heavy roast in the nose, all together enjoyable and well integrated, presented as an overly hoppy stout/porter (depending on what roast level you accept as style-appropriate for each). firm, frothy and full bodied with a moderately drying finish and tingly hop acids. lush and decadent but with a potpourri hop flavor and mild cattiness.

GABF 2010, darker pour. lots of roastiness in both the aroma & flavor. Big bitter hop presence to boot. Well blended & quite flavorful. Medium to fuller mouthfeel. Solid Black IPA, of which there seemed to be a ton of these @ GABF this year
