Pours dark with a coffee colored head. Has a roasted malt coffee taste to it. I didn’t really detect the typical IPA presence in this one but very good nonetheless. Has a creamy mouthfeel.

A real good beer. Like a hoppy guinness. Good body, head, and lacing. Thick and black like a negro beer ought to be brewed. Even good at room temperature. Does not lose it’s class. The best Uinta has to offer in my opinion. Dig the hemp seed. Recommened to all. Good drinking!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Thick light brown head. Clear dark red color. Big hoppy and grassy aroma. Big assulting bitterness toghether with both much dark roasted malts and hop tastes. This is an full attack on your taste buds. No balancing sweetness and a medium body gives a unbalanced beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
About a 1 inch thick head of fine and dense bubbles. Awesome aroma with loads of citrusy hops, some pineapple and a hint of rubber upon a deep exhale. Very dark crimson brown in color. The body is kind of lifeless in the mouth. Thick and heavy and oily. Lots more citrusy flavors along with some roasted grains and herbals hops flavors. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Not sure about this one. Just seems like a lack of carbonation and mouthfeel hurt this brew considerably. Maybe just an imperfect bottle.

Multiple bottlesm really liking this black ipa with hemp seeds. Pours a brown maroon color, deep body. Lacing is medium, head was small. Aromas of roasted malt, licorice, floral hops, citrus, pine, and other herbal scents. Taste is an awesomely balanced black ipa filled with delicious malts and hops working back and forth, caramel, mollases. Really strong hop presence. Warming. Maybe the hoppiest black I have had yet. Very good.
