On tap at the Tap and Mallet. Standard dark black pour with a thin tan head. Somewhat creamy. Not much hops noticed. It was not as good as the Victory black IPA I had at the same time.

Very very very nice beer. Amazing IPA aromas with a nice crispy flavor, that starts bitter and floral and ends up with some roasted malty aftertaste. Very nice beer.

Very much enjoyed, ever so slightly spicy with a deeply delicious presentation of malt and hops. Lovely.

Good black ipa with a lot of smell, not too much taste for. But I think this was a perfectly good beer to drink. Buy this several times I do not think I do. But good it was.

Pours deep red, near black, with a couple fingers light tan head. Smell is light roast and faint hops. Taste is almost peppery, well balanced between malt and hop. Toasty. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Jimmy 43 with Linh, Caroline and Will. Pours a deep, rich black body with thin off white - brown lacing. Aroma is super sweet whiskey, wood, dark fruit and chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of sweet, dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, and a hint of sweet wine. Very interesting, tastes absolutely nothing like a black ipa, as all the bitterness or hop character has been completely wiped clean by the apparent wine/whiskey conditioning.
