Aroma is a nice pine and chocolate scent. Taste is hop forward pine, citrus, grapefruit, then there is some great malt chocolate, caramel, super balanced malt. Very good black ipa. I love steel toe!!

God this is awesome. Just a solidly balanced beer. Nice black IPA! Not many are great. This hits malt, hops, aromatics and amazing taste!

Bomber. Pour is very dark brown, thin mocha head. Aroma is hoppy pine and dark roasted malt, some sweetness. Taste is big pine and lemon hops, dark roasted, but not black IPA levels, caramel malt, toffee, earthiness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Majority portion of 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-13-13. Pours dark mahogany with a moderate amount of long-lasting, uneven, taupe head. Produces thick lacing. Appetizing appearance. Clean, yeasty, mineral-y, dry smell. Roasted malts in the aroma. Flavor of dark chocolate brownie with a dry, hoppy finish. Caramel, vegetal taste. Medium body. Soft in the palate. Mmm, this is really good! It deserves the 4 I am giving it.

Tap at Steel Toe. Dark murky amber pour with a frothy light beige head. Big roasted malts and citrus hops on the aroma. Full palate. Bold hops in the taste but still a pretty easy drinker. Great full-flavored brew.

Another well crafted by Jason at Steel Toe. Big pine on the nose. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Some lacing here. Malt quickly gives way to pine hops and some nice bitterness on the finish. Excellent!

Bomber thanks to Caleb. Pours a pure black color with a large beige head. A sweet nose of pine and light chocolates. The flavor leans toward the darker porter side with roast, dry chocolate and ash, caramel, light bitter pine and citrus. Very flavorful.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a tight foamy soapy khaki head that slowly fades way to a thin foamy film. Aroma has solid bitter hops of pine/spruce with big roasted malt burnt toffee and hidden coffee. Taste has more big bitterness of pine spruce some hidden citrus and roasted malt faded coffee and brunt toffee/caramel. Palate is medium smooth and dry with a coating feel in the finish. Really nice! This needs to be a regular, in their line-up!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Looks like it pours black, but seems to be a crystal ruby red around the edges. Small off-white head. Aromas of pine, very light coffee, and another aroma which seems similar to pot. Weird. Taste is toasty like coffee, more pine and an almost curry-like hop flavor. Very interesting, pretty good.
