On draught at Petrol Station. Dark brown color with a medium thick foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, hops and chocolate in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of roast malt, piney hops and chocolate. The finish is roasty malt up front with a hoppy aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Very dark brown pour with a nice beige head. Aroma is strong roasted malts and piney hops. Taste is pine, roast, dark chocolate, bread. Dark malts and the hops play very together in this one. Really nice black IPA.

On draft at Whole Foods, Chandler, AZ.
Near black opaque body with a filmy beige head. Aromas of pine, chocolate, roast. Lovely balance. I’m not typically a of fan of black IPAs, but this is certainly noteworthy. Bitter chocolates and resinous hops. Silky mid palate finishing with some bitter chocolate and hop notes. Well done.

Poured a deep cola colour with a big, lively head. Not as hoppy as I would have thought and the alcohol is well hidden.

Tap at Odells brewery. Pours dark caramel with minimal head. Smells of piney resin and dark chocolate. Taste of big hops with really bitter after taste that sticks around. Great beer but not my style.
