12oz can from Spirits Rt 166. This is a black IPA?? Smells and tastes more like a black saison. Smell and taste is floral and spicy, dark toast, sugary dark chocolate. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, lingering aftertaste that starts sweet and fades to roastiness. Not digging it.

Can from Canalís. Pours out a cola color with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of nice citrusy zesty hops, toasted malts, light chocolate and some mild coffee. Taste is some toasted malts, citrusy hops, grapefruit, chocolate, medium roast coffee. Hops were a little more muted in the taste than the aroma, but none the less a decent BIPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A murky brown beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has piney, resiny hops and a roasted maltyness. Some chocolate. The flavor is too much on the chocolate side, with roasted malts. Some bitterness and a pleasant piney touch. Rather phenolic and lighlty alcoholic too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Seems pretty nice at first this one, but I canít say Iím impressed. Itís sort of messy. 140118
