4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 2. Pours opaque brown with a bubbly, tan head. Big, raw hop aroma, pine, slight roast. Medium sweet flavor, plenty of bitterness, notes of citrus and earth, dark roasted malts. Has a bit of a raw edginess to it, which I like. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, resinous hop finish, some floral character, more grass and pine. Lingering pine, roast and oily hops. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Portsmouth Gaslight during the Smuttynose tap takeover. Pours deepest, darkest brown, almost black with a 1 finger head that retains well and laces nicely. Roasted malt and pine hop aroma. Flavor is a well balanced combination of the malt and pine hop. Neither overpowers the other. Even get a hint of chocolate from time to time. The finish is quite bitter with coffee ground notes. Moderate in body with enough carbonation to keep the tongue interested. Theres a smoothness to it that makes it easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at RnH, 8/8/11
Aroma: It has a light nose, slightly hoppy (floral/pine) and some light roast
Appearance: This one has a brown-black pour with a thin tan head atop it
Flavor: The taste is fairly balanced between the pine hops and roasty malts
Palate: The body is medium, with a decent mouthfeel, and a slight dryness to the finish
Overall, I thought this was a pretty good beer. It wasn’t any kind of stand-out, but a fairly solid example of the Black IPA style.
