Bottle. A clear looking dark brown beer with a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma has some sweet licorice, roasted malts and coffee, with piney hops and a citrus peel touch. A good dash of licorice in the flavor too, with some cough syrup, roasted malts and coffee. Pine cones, resins and a hoppy bitterness in the flavor. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting roasted and hop-bitter finish. Too malty forward for a black IPA I think, but still nice and tasteful. 140808
