Mild roasted notes, with a touch of piney hops. Pours a dark ruby with a thin light tan head. More hops come through in the flavor, with a strong piney note with a lingering bitter finish. This meshes well with the roasted notes from the malt. Overall, a nice black IPA.

Enjoyable. More a hopped up coffee porter than a black IPA in my opinion. Great pour, coffee aromas in the nose and in the palate as well as decent hop bitterness. I truly enjoyed. Great lil beer

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a generous head and aromas of... well... not much. A little bit of chocolate or something and a sort of grapefruit presence is about it. Taste is more interesting... a nice mix of a chocolate malt presence, a creamy mouthfeel and a citrus hops presence with a nice bitter edge to it.

Bottle from Bobar: Poured a dark brown opaque liquid with a fluffy topping of foam head. Aroma is mild with a pinch of hops and a touch of lightly roast malts is all to speak of. The drink delivers more of an upfront taste of roast malt than the aroma led me to believe but the addition of hops really make this an interesting black IPA.
