Bottle. Black color with a brown head. A solid black IPA. It has a rich malty body with a well balanced and nicely hopped finish. The malts are nice and chocolaty and there really is a hint of tangerine in the aroma.

Bottle shared at Butler’s with Chris and Craig. Thanks so much, Craig. Pours very dark brown to black with one finger of head. Aroma is slight roast and mild happens. Drinks very smoothly with nice bitterness and nice roast without becoming harsh. Really nice version of the style.

Bomber from Binnys in Highland Park with burlap cloth around the neck. Very dark brown pour with a tannish head. Aroma has black patent malts, rum raisin, pine and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, bitter malts, some pine and a bit of grape. Medium bodied. A touch of alcohol. Finishes sweet and bitter, a bit salty and a bit fruity. Quite a blend. Shrug? Not hoppy but interesting for style. 13.4
