Bottle from Whole Foods Henderson, NV
Dark color, almost black; medium sized head. Frankly, it’s an Imperial Stout, maybe with just less body, and less sweetness than some others; it has a very good flavor of chocolate and roasted malts, some molasses too, and powerful hopping; apparently a bit resiny as well; the aroma is instead somehow light.
Very good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I wonder if this is erved at 4:20? Get it? Anyway, for a black IPA this one lacks the piney hops aroma, and more closely resembles a stout. The bittering hops do come through in the taste.
