4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 Bottle at Mikkeller and friends. Pours dark brown with medium tan head leaving very sticky lacing. Nose is full of milk chocolate and roastiness while there is moderate piney hops and a very passionfruit forward note which balances the roast and goes hand in hand. Superb. Taste is woody and chocolate driven with big pine and tropical notes. A hint of pepper works well. Seriously drinkable stuff. Fantastic BIPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from the brewery, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has delicate resin, pine, pepper and citrus, along with roasty malts. The flavour is well balanced between chocolatey, roasty malts on the one hand, and delicate, piney resinous and peppery hops on the other. It finishes on a balanced note, with roasty and hoppy notes. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, silky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice and subtle black IPA. I suspect that the hops would have been a bit more dominant when fresh. 2013-11-22

Draft at brewpub from July...pours dark black. Huge piney nose with some bakerís chocolate, pipe tobacco and fruitiness apparent. Taste follows to a "T" but not as piney, which was good. More fruity hop goodness on the back-end. Very good brew

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Rating from notes. This is probably one of the coolest names of a beer ever. Pours a very dark brownish black with a big sticky beige head. Aroma is roast, piney and citrus hops, mild chocolate and tobacco notes. Iím not really sure what a New Orleans style beer is, but this has leather, mint, and orange peel notes as well. Medium to fullish bodied. Somewhat creamy. Pretty nice in a style that I donít really think has established itself ut of a gimmick style yet.
