3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
About a 1 inch thick head of very fine and creamy light brown bubbles. Roasted grains, chocolate malts, light piney hops and some black cherry. Color is a dark brown. Rich flavor with lots of roasted grains, piney hops, light chocolate malts and a bit of burnt bitter coffee. Dryness from the hops and grains make the mouthfeel kind of chalky. Finishes roasty and bitter. An ok black IPA.

On tap at pour house, pours a dark purple black, with small head and lacing. Aromas are verry hoppy, with mostly pine and grapefruit. Taste is the same but bitter and has a smokey coffee flavor. Pretty good black ipa all around but too roasty and too much bite in finish.

Dark brown with a big beige head. Decent lacing. Aroma chocolate and roasted malts with a weak citrus hop aroma. The taste is malty and chocolatey with a relatively mild bitterness. Medium bodied and quite dry. Good beer, but doesnít excel for the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh... I was a little disappointed in this beer. Aroma was weak for he style. Roasted malt and just a hint of grapefruit hops. Pour was as he style says- black with his a few off white blotches for a head. Taste was thin and watery- some bitterness in the roasted malt and a stale hoppy aftertaste. Not their best offering. Light carbonation.

On taP, poured a dark brown to black with a light brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, must, earth with a hint of orange/fruit. Flavor was quite earthy with some roast, hints of fruit and sweetness, long lingering finish. Fairly easy to drink.
