On tap. Poured black with a brown head that dissipated to a thin film around the edges. Aroma had notes of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate and a bit of pine. Flavor began with roasted malts with it becoming more bitter as the chocolate and pine grew.

on tap at the brewpub for amd hatter days. pours dark, dark brown/black with small head. taste and aroma are very similar to standard mad hatter, but with coffee/ roasty notes. interesting twist on a really great beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ the brew pub. Pours a dark clear mahogany color with a medium fizzy beige head that leaves a thick crown. The aroma is subdued but includes citrus hops, roasted malts, and a slight chocolate sweetness. The flavor is citrusy hops, roasted malt, and dark chocolate, with the bitterness lingering through the finish. Smooth and creamy to drink. There are better IPA’s around, but this was a solid choice.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler poured into a Tulip. Pours black with a small off-white fizzy head. The aroma is not much, a little bit of roast followed by a hint of citrus hops. Taking the first drink the first thing you taste is grapefruit hops. There is a slight coffee/roast finish as it goes down, but the finish is quite bitter with a citrusy finish that lasts along time once the beer is gone. As you drink it there is excellent lacing but no head. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. Poured clear brown color with a moderate white fizzy head that diminished slowly with excellent lacing. Good complex toasted sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Well balanced bittersweet flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Growler. dark black. smell strong of hops and some roasted malt. starts off like an IPA and finishes with a watery chocolate roast finish. I agree with badnewsbeers on this one.

murky black body with small off-white head...aroma and flavor are quite watered down in nature...starts off floral in nature, and finishes with a watered down chocolate malt backbone....nothing too complex here, and nothing too special either...palate is nice
