Medium dark coffee brown that has the perfect balance of malt and hops. There is a smooth coffee/toffee taste with a wonderful citrus grapefruit flavor that works amazingly well. One of the best Black IPA’s I have had and possibly the best beer brewed in Middle Tennessee! Try this.

Draft 7/22/15 (Broadway Brewhouse-Franklin)-Pours black with a small head. Aroma of hops, malt, and slight chocolate. Taste of the same with a bit of coffee as well. This medium bodied brew was not bad.

Growler from sieglers. Supposed to be a black ipa but tasted more like an average stout.

Hazy brown pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is light roasted malt and a touch of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt with an almost molasses kicker. A very good resiny-floral bitter finish. Medium body with food carbonation. A rich sweetness that I can’t put my finger on, still an ok drinker

Sometimes I hate character limits. This was a good malty beer, smooth, but with a sourish finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 1/17/15 on tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves average sticky lace. The nose is molasses, coffee, and pine resin hops, some dark bread. The flavor is a touch of molasses bread up front, moving to the nice resin and coffee bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter resin and roasted coffee finish.

Smoothest IBA I have ever had the pleasure of tasting! Coffee notes aren’t too heavy, floral aroma is perfectly blended with the roasty malts and extra hop addition!
