2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is dominated by roast malt and some sweet caramel. Taste is also quite malt heavy, more sweet than roasty. Not enough IPA characteristics in this brew for me.

Bottle - near jet black with a small head. Light roasted malt aroma and a grainy taste. The body is medium and the finish is very smooth but somewhat watery. Not bad.

Odors of cocoa, musk, earthen char emanate from this onyx pour and beige crown. This is actually quite good, the best I’ve seen from third street. Bitter char, excellent sweet follow up. Overall, satisfied to have found a good one.

Very easy drinking, wife likes this. Roasted malt, coffee, and nice clean bitterness. Actually pretty surprised at this one.

Pour is black with nice head...nose is minimal a little hops and malt..mouth is malt and anise...something is lacking in this one...drinkable yet needs something...maybe dark fruit....drinkable but not fantastic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mid sized head. Opaque black. Unimpressive roast, malt, caramel, and hop aroma. Somewhat thick for an IPA, but not unappealing by any means. Creamy. Pleasing combination of roast, chocolate and a fair amount of hop. Simple, but satisfying nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Erwin Van Moll and Stefan @ Van Moll Brewpub. Nice dark red-brown color with a nice dark red glare coming through. Nice color, but not black as I expected. Small to average sized beige head. Aroma is lightly malts, oxidation, a hint of cocoa, a hint of leaves. Taste malts, lightly hops, leaves, lightly bitter. Decent body and carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Roast malts and some cocoa with some toffee sweetness. Deep mahogany with a rich beige head. Roasted malts, bitter hops and a decent malty bitter, ashtray finish. Interesting and more on the malt side than the hops.
