3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black as pitch with a frothy, pillowy, tan head. Nose is surprisingly hoppy and I’m not sure how I feel about that. It’s like someone cut my stout with IPA. Flavor is hoppy bitterness with an undercurrent of dark, malty sweetness. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Quite good, but I’d like it better with a little less hop.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unusual and excellent. A proto black IPA, I guess. Thick body, balanced perfect mouthfeel, just very pleasing, with good weight and balance. Hoppy nose dominates aroma. Appearance is very dark with a nice lacing pattern. Also some bitter chocolate wafts out. I really liked this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at least 2 years old. Really nice! Pours pitch black with an initial foamy tan head and some light lacing. Nose is espresso and pine. Notes of dark fruit, espresso, maybe a hint of licorice, some resin. Tastes are medium sweet and heavy bitter. Body is full, maybe a bit on the creamy side, with lively carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Really great beer.
