The boys from Chico don’t let you down this time either. Loaded with roasted black coffee and an everpresent bitterness that never overpowers. A solid late winter brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another hybrid via Sierra Nevada. Nothing wrong here, just nothing that make me too happy. Very assertive hops, with an odd medicinal note. These black IPAs don’t always work. This one is okay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 FL. OZ. Bottle. My heels are sore. Painful and aching. My spine hurts. I’m lightheaded. That’s death sinking in. At some point everything starts dying. The point of no return. When the new growth stops and everything starts winding down. The inevitable cold dark stop awaits us all.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle to sniffer. Nice light tan head about 2 fingers thick, extensive lacing. Dark roasted coffee aroma. Nice malty sweetness with mocha and dark chocolate. Bitterness of the hops is present but with minimal flavors. Nice dark deep brown near black color. Best of both worlds with the richness of a porter/stout and the bite of an IPA.
