Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and fruity hops. Taste is a nice balance of roasted malt and hops. One of the best black ipa’s in my opinion. Great lacing shown on each sip.

A nearly, black pour with a tan head and some sediment. The aroma has pine and lemon with a hint caramel. It has a medium body with somewhat slick texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a roasted finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown with a nice tan foamy head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and hops. Taste of grassy hops over some roasted malts, some cocoa and coffee notes. Nice beer enjoyable and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 1st pour went a little too fast I guess. It was 80% thick tan head. Took a bit to regress to the a dark opaque brown with a thick tan lacing clinging to the sides. Aroma of hops intermingled with roasted malts. Taste almost exactly the same as the nose but the malts taste almost burnt and lingering bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark pour, one finger head with pretty good lacing. Milky aroma with some citrus. The flavor was caramel malts with roast...like a brown ale, almost. Mild citrus hops. Very mild on all fronts, but a nice chalky mouthfeel. Pretty easy drinking for a black IPA. Good job.

Bottle. Orange, mint, pine, chocolate and some coffee in the nose. Cloudy matte black color. Flavors of pine resin, coffee, roast, some smoke. Decent, not all that sweet.

Pure black and standard off white, soapy head. Chocolate and molasses mingle and that ever present late edition hop flavor. Still, pretty good.
