4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of piney root beer and citrus. Dark reddish brown with fading tan head. Taste is bitter, resiny, with some slight alcohol. Slight maltiness which I can’t explain, but very nice. Palate is fairly thin for a 10% beer, but goes great with the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark molasses pour with a small latte head. Mild citrus, roast, coffee, and toast in the nose. Heavy on the roasted malt and the bitterness is present but not forward. An enjoyable beer but wouldn’t really categorize this one as a Black IPA...more like a slightly hoppy brown. Meh.

Can. From Andrew, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of mocha, roasted malt, chocolate, raisins notes and earthy presence. Taste is moderately sweet with piney notes, mocha, chocolate and light raisins. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent drinkability. Tasty stuff, but too heavy in flavors for my liking.

Can. Black-brown pour with mocha head. Aroma feels artificial like the bad Founders. Some coffee, nuts, mocha and a hint of hoppiness. Taste is nutty, mollasses, some roastiness ad light grassiness. Not my type.
