UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Black-brown body, with an inch of light tan creamy head on top. Moderate lacing. Assertive nose hits immediately. Resinous pine, lemon-orange citric hops, mild roasted malts. Flavor is similar, with the pine coming out a bit more. Medium to full bodied. Steady carbonation with a crisp bitter finish.

Thank you Terry! Dark dark brown pour with slight hints of red when held to the light. Patent like roasted barley and coca nib notes give way to piney herbals and hints of tropical fruit. Medium body with a bone dry finish. Really interesting beer here. What black IPA should be...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Mikkeller. Muddy opaque chestnut pour and a nice pillowy latte head. Aroma is hop forward with bright citrus fruits, zesty tea, a bit soapy, a small cocoa hint and a bit of butter (diacetyl I guess) presence. Taste is brightly hoppy and citrus/pink grape forward. A farmhouse-esque note, chiming in with fruity esters and flowery notes. Lastly a tasting note somewhat reminiscent of how I imagine toilet cleaner would taste. Slightly dense malt flavour carrying a hint of cocoa nibs, but not any particular roasted notes. Tasty, but the yeast and hops are not a particularly heavenly combination.
