Poured a nice dark mahogany with an off white/tan head, giving great lacing to the end. Aroma is a mixture of malt and hops. Palate is a little thin. Flavour is nicely bitter, but has a strange astringency..... Great drop, but just misses the mark for me.

beer-yum (1335) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2015
Restrained aroma in a brown black pour. Hop forward balance with full sweet malt body and sustained malty finish. Interesting hint of licorice as it warms up too. Very tasty brew.

With Z, pours a dark mahogany brown pour with a beige head. Nose is malt and caramel with softer pine and resin . Taste is caramel, toffee and sweet malt with a softer hoppy ending. Finishes on the well balanced tasting notes with a sweet hoppy finish . Quaff Score 7 / 10 ( drinks more like a strong ale )

Ron (3587) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 22, 2015
On tap at D.B.A. New Orleans. Pours a dark caramel color with a foamy head. Aroma is sweet with good hoppiness to it. Flavor is definitely more sweet and caramel-malty than I expected. Very nicely balanced. Good stuff. (they had written in next to the name on the chalk board, strong ale. As soon as tasted new it was a Black IPA)

Solid Black IPA. A little light in body, but clear happy flavor. Could use slightly more flavor for palate feel. Nice finish. Good with spicy food.

"very interesting. rich and full bodied. has an herbal aspect...can’t tell if it’s the hops or yeast. low bitterness and flavorful. sweet, bready and thick, but the tripel aspects come through a little more than the bock. nice unique brew."
