Coffee smell takes over this beer. Taste is coffee too. Little hops are present in this beer. Sits well on the palate with little hop presentation. Black as night with a nice tan head that stays with the beer for a while. Very well developed beer. Johnsense (1754) - - AUG 13, 2015
Black pour with a massive head. Dark chocolate, Pine, slightly woody. Balanced (which is to say not overly hoppy). Medium body kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Deep and dark with a nice cream head. Aroma of cola with a mild hop. Bitterness is smooth. Chocolate and a light pine flavor. It’s not the hoppiest of IPA’s, but very nice mouthfeel. AirForceHops (7806) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 5, 2015
650 ml bottle purchased at Specs in Austin, TX. Bottle date of : 04 05 15. Deep black pour with massive head retention that coats the snifter. Aroma some bold roasted notes with a light pine. Fox13riderco (14) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Body is full with a stout- like density and creamy mouthfeel. Yeah baby, That’s what I’m talking about right here!
The malts have a deep roasted character with some smooth chocolate notes that ends with a nice lingering pine bitterness that ends with the chocolate flavor coming back around to the taste buds. Very well crafted! I think this scores top in style for my own palate.
The beer is a very musky thicker IPA hints the black IPA but overall a good beer
