On tap at Twain’s. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, citrus hops, bit of earthy rye note. Flavor is light citrus, good amount of roasted malts and nice mixture of bitterness between the hops and rye. Has nice mouthfeel. Pretty solid for a black IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap a beautiful, opaque black-coffee brown with a nice light tan head. Hearty aroma has strong notes of quality coffee and roast malty with hoppy and subtle rye and molasses notes in the mix. Scrumptious flavor has tones of roast malt, rye, burnt hops, licorice, coffee, molasses and just a touch of horehound. Firm and fizzy body and a smoky finish complete a very pleasant drinking experience. You won’t get a black eye enjoying (or recommending) this one!

Thick black color with creamy tan head and lacing. Roasted nut aroma with a slight hint of and dark chocolate. The rye comes out amazingly and is not faulted by the black malts. Good roasted palate with a nice sharp bitter finish.
