3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral hoppy aroma with Caramelized malt. Taste is malty with a very dry bitter hoppy finish. Piney and resinous, but not as resinous as some, but even more dry than most. Flavors are pretty solid but almost had a dry your tongue out hoppy finish (more than most hoppy beers) which detracts for me.

Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with some floral hops. Flavor starts with some dark roasted notes and coffee and then the hoppy notes come out - floral and grassy hop notes as well as some peppery notes and light earthiness. Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel and a long finish. Overall pretty good and very drinkable, just not as hopped up as some of the other Black IPAís out there.

22 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some general bittering hops but not much in the way of flavor, some earthy notes, not bad, but not worth repeating.

nice foamy tan head but no real lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, grain and hints of hops. Taste toasty malts, slightly bitterness from hops. Very enjoyable, and quite drinkable, really liked this one.

Tap. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black body under a one finger tight bubbled beige head that left some spotty lace. The nose is super citrusy with a really nice chocolate and toasty maltiness and a little coffee. The flavor is bright and hoppy, but tempered by the chocolate and roast with a lingering coffee and licorice laced finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. This is by far one of the best Rogue beers that Iíve ever had. Good stuff.
