COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich darkness is not excessive as is sometimes seen in other craft iterations. A medium high hop flavor and aroma befits this style. The caramel and roasted malt flavors and aromas are enhanced with a well-controlled fruitiness.

Black IPA in terms of bitterness, but not so much in terms of hop flavor/aroma. Body is ok as is appearance; Finish is long and roasty.

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.

VeinAle (134) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2015
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.
