22oz bottle from richdorchak, thanks Rich! Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a big chocolate sweetness with some caramel and molasses as well as a good amount of floral hops. Some sweet citruses, a touch of earth, and a light roast. Flavor is similar. Lots of chocolates as well as some caramel and molasses up front before a moderate mixture of roasts and earth comes in to balance the sweetness. Some floral citruses and a slight ashiness before this finishes dry and moderately bitter, but pretty sweet. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a bit too sweet of a Black IPA for my liking, but not bad. Decent hop and roast balance with no hint of alcohol. This was okay.
