Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, bread, and fruits, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Poured a very dark brown with light orange highlights around the edge of the glass. There was a tall foamy mocha head that only left a light amount of lacing. The aroma was mild with scents of chocolate and floral hops. The beer has a mild roasted malt flavor with a slightly bitter cirtus hops flavor coming along towards the middle. A more bitter coffee flavor appears towards the finish and it becomes slightly dry. This one too is not to hops dominate and easy drinking.

12oz bottle. Black pour (duh) with medium head and carbonation. Decent enough beer that goes down easy. The malt slightly out powers the hops making this less of an IPA in my mind but overall it’s pretty tasty and managed to quench my thirst just fine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a dark brown with slight ruby notes and a very thin off white/tan head. Aroma is of roast, chocolate and some citrusy hops. Taste is chocolate malts, citrus hops, roast and some lingering bitterness and sweetness combining on the finish. Very solid, and smooth drinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours an opaque deep brown (although there is some translucence to the beer looking at it pouring out of the bottle into the glass) with a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of pine with just a touch of grapefruit. Some mild malt in the nose as well. The flavor is mild malt with a bit of molasses followed by some resinous pine with again just a touch of grapefruit and orange. The hops are not overpowering. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a mostly opaque black with some dark mahogany edges and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a fresh piny hop nose with some light malty sweetness and a touch of roastiness. Starts with a clean dark malty sweetness and a resiny piny hop balance with a light bitter balance before a smooth bittersweet finish with a touch of lingering dark malts. Pretty true to the style and drinkable.

12oz bottle. I wasn’t expecting it to be so sweet and chocolaty. The IPA is there but this seems to be dominated by the porter character.
