3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells toasty and bread. Pours a nice dark brown with ruby accents but almost no head. I really like the taste of this one, not real hoppy with a nice malt character. Fizzy carbonation and has a surprise toasty finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very deep brown/black color with a tan head that quickly fades down to the liquid. Aroma has a slight bug spray/deep woods OFF nose. Flavor has a smooth light chocolate early that quickly fades to a modest earthy hops presence with a good dose of roasted malt at the finish. Body is light/modest with a slight dryness from the roasted malt presence. Overall not bad but nothing special. Hops presence wasn’t as pronounced as I would expect for the style.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a black IPA and what I would call a stout. Still, this is a very smooth beer and definitely worth a try.
