3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark and black with a small off white head. Nose is wood and pine needles, some hay, light chocolate, coffee and berries. The taste is sweet at first but then accompanied but excellent bitterness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, the body is light and the finish is long.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz into Duvel Tulip
Black with light brown head that isnít going anywhere. Aroma of mild hops, a bit of roast, slightly sweet, nothing special. Decent hoppy flavor, a bit too sweet, lacking roast. This beer seems somewhere in between a stout and a black IPA. Nothing I would buy again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a big, foamy, white head. Thereís lots of floral and citrusy hops with a touch of pine. The roasted malts add a bit of chocolate and roast but without the usual chalkiness that I donít like in most black IPAís. The body is creamy, medium-full with soft carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ a huge thick long lasting tan head and excellent lacing. Big fresh hoppy aromas, pine, grapefruit rind, roast, malts, and chocolate. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of long duration. Tastes are malty chocolates and roasted malt, pine hops, a hint of citrus, and a clean, bitter pine finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel average carbonation, and a warm finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewery. Pours a murky dark golden-brown with off-white lacing. Aroma of pine hops and dark malt. Taste starts with a hoppy bitter bite then gets kind of watery, with some pine and sugar. Lingering light bitter pine notes. Eh, thereís not much going on here.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark red/brown with light brown head. Smells very hoppy and roasty. Has an amazing combination of warm roasty flavors and complex hop aromas. The flavors combine well enough to balance out. Thereís not much as far as coffee aromas go (which I like). Ends with a subtle yet distinct war roasty flavor.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish-black with a two inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, hops, pine, citrus, fruit and resin. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable.
