Very interesting dark IPA, not too much aromatic hops but huge on the dry sid, giving it a clear medicinal not. Head and lacing were not all that much, cola colored

Bottle pours a dark brown brew with a tiny off-white head. Scent is roasty, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate and malty with some light bitterness on the end. Not what I had in mind but it is tasty.

Bottle. Black pour with a medium, dense brown head. Strong aroma is roasted malt, and hops. The malt seems to be overcoming the hops. Soft dark chocolate as well. Taste is big roasted malt with lesser hop notes. Lots of dark chocolate and coffee here as well. Body is medium-full with a bubbly, but creamy carbonation. Ends with a touch more pronounced hoppiness but with big roasted malt and coffee notes, light chocolate and burnt caramel.

22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma is a nice blend of hops and malts: roasted malt, cocoa , citrus, and hints of pine resin. The flavor has a dark roasted malt base, with bittersweet chocolate, hints of black coffee and an overall mild sweetness. The hops provide moderate bitterness with citrus and pine standing out. The finishes is dry with more roasted malt. Medium bodied and somewhat smooth mouthfeel.

a bit too strong where they need more flavor. the malts are a strong yet astringent it and the hops are notice yet not anything special for this type of beer. it has a sweet flavor of chocolate malts but the hoppiness brings a great amount of palate fatigue.

The aroma is very toasted and hoppy with coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is very near the aroma but with an astringent finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is pretty good.
