3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate and coffee in the aroma mixed in with some citrus hops. They have the right idea but can’t execute. Its decent bu feels like a watered down version of a better Black IPA. Too much coffee to be a black ipa also. If you call your beer an IPA it better shine in the hops category.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: film of tan head, dark brown to black color, opaque, . Aroma: nutty, heavy coffee, light fruitiness. Palate: medium body, bitter finish, less than average carbonation. Taste: sweet nutty malt, going into heavy coffee with a decent amount of bitterness coming through as well.

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.

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.
