Not sure if I have tasted anything like this. Completely unique. Not highly drinkable but just so unique.

Fantastic subalpine forest aroma. Sweet and coating with a bitter linger. Some dark chocolate which is nice, but would like more hops in the flavor profile.

12 oz bottle, poured a nice black with a single finger of brown foam. Strong malty taste on a medium body. Bitter flavors are toned down. Alcohol content is barely noticable. One of my favorite beers!

Draft at the brewery (GABF weekend) - This was definitely more of a hoppy porter than most Black IPAs I have had. Lots of coffee and roasted malts with the wallop of pine and citrus. Nice.

On tap at Bier Station. Pours a clear dark brown with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has musty dark grains and roasted malts with an underlying earthy pine. Flavor has a combination of roasted malts and earthy pine with a creamy dark grain backbone.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery in Ft. Collins, CO. Dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit rind upfront with coffee in the background. The flavor is the opposite; dark chocolate and coffee are the most present with the hops taking a backseat and merely complementing the dark roasted malt flavor. A very well done black IPA.
