4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle - pours black with nice beige head and great lacing. Nose is chocolate and light spruce. Flavor adds roasted malts and coffee. Light sweet with stronger bitterness. Dry finish with roasty aftertaste. Smooth and medium to full body. Definitely liking the style more and more. Usually overlook the brewer, but I’ll keep an eye out now.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a dense light brown head. Hard roast aroma with only a hint of hops. Solid body, hard and a little harsh roasty malts while the hops don’t really add much but bitterness - and it sure ends bitter. I’d call this a Stout - simply. Hasn’t really got the good aroma hops to make this a Black IPA. 260412

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the taproom in Indy... Pours a deep silky stout black hued consistency with reddish brown edges and topped with a medium soapy light beige head that quickly recedes leaving a wispy... Aroma of black licorice, abuse, spices, and a light aspect of spruce... Flavors emphasize semi-bitter roasted chocolate and black licorice. The hops kind of fall to the wayside. Medium bodied leaving somewhat an earthy chalky feel towards the finish. Semi-lively carbonation. Totally lacking in the hop department.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Totally black, dark-oatmeal couloured head leaving lace stripes all the way to the end. Nose is harshly floral...taste is herbal,slightly medicinal, dry bitter. Probably a good example of the style, but these don’t really appeal to me too much...still, worth the experience.
