1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Black as the midnight, huge uncontrolable head, extremely off flavors of soap and metal, very hard to distinguish any actual beer flavor from it if there is actually one. My very first beer down the drain.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black color with tan foam. Dry chocolate, smoke, earthy aromas. Frothy light body. Lightly sweet dark chocolate, dirt, floral hop flavors with black maltage--not bad.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Aroma of dark roastd malts, olives(?), and hints of peat smokiness and citrus/pine.. Pours a dark brown with mostly lasting rocky tan head and spotty lacing. The taste is moderately bitter. Burnt malts, peat, and a hoppy finish. The taste is quick. Medium-light to medium body with fizzy carbonatin. Oveall, not one I will try again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Spec’s. Really dark brown with an obscenely large tan head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, grass, and what smells almost like a Belgian yeast. The taste is full of roasted malt with a slight bitterness. Medium bodied and very dry. It’s decent, but with a mild aroma and a sharp, somewhat one-dimensional taste, it could be much better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aged 1 year (bottled January 7, 2012): According to the brewer, this is probably the last bottle of the "old batch" in existence before the change in recipe. This old recipe, per the brewer(s), was the better of the two. It has a dark-brown color and a light-brown head. Its aroma is sweet and malty, thick and meaty, much like a sweet, robust porter. It gives a numbing, soft, sweet, almost watery mouth feel and flavor. It tastes like a well-aged beer... at only one year old. Good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber pours dark brown with a big fluffy tan head. Not much in the nose-a little malt and chocolate. Taste starts off with a huge carbonation blast, then some milder burnt malt and roasty flavors. Some strange off putting sharpness here-not an easy drinking beer. It seems like the beer fights you to get it down the gullet. No alcohol presence. Just OK-barely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Choice Beverages, McKinney. Pours black with a thin tan head. The aromas are chocolate, smoke, citrus, resin. The mouthfeel is watery with a light to medium body and good carbonation. Unlike the others, I liked this one okay. A bit of a different black IPA, but decent none the less.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma is chocolate and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a very acidic flavor and metallic finish. Not much going on with this one.

for the first taste of this local brewery, not a good start .. . pours black .. light to medium foam, lacing is decent .. . roast and a very upfront acrid hoppiness, almost metallic .. . couldn’t finish my sample .. . . What if birds aren’t really singing, They’re just screaming because they’re scared of heights?
