A rip-roaring, rollicking India Pale Ale that’s brewed with a hefty portion of flaked rye and Carafa II to make it black as Ravens. Liberal hopping with Super Galena and whole cone Centennials and Sonnet makes this ale a kind of strong stout for hop heads. Got to charge an extra buck though, we put a lot in it!

On draft at the brewpub. Pours black with a tan head. Grassy hop aroma. Floral spicy hops with coffee and toasted malt notes. Bitter finish. Nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Very dark brown color with a small light tan head. Roasty with piney hops on the aroma.  Flavor is decently complex with sharp roast, bitter espresso, and a piney hop blast. Very dry on the mouthfeel and rather resinous with average carbonation. Pretty solid example of the style if not a standout.

Draft at the brewpub. Their description is pretty apt. This definitely drinks just like a hoppy stout. It’s almost chalky, with a hint of baking chocolate, finishing with a sharp snap of hops. Decent -- hides the 9.6% well. (#4534, 3/24/2012)
