On tap @ The Trappist. Nearly black in color with tan foam. Kind of sticky and sugary beer. Lots of roast, licorice, and maybe some tar. There’s an earthy hop character to it along with some canned peach, orange rind, and pine. A bit of an ashy, burnt flavor to the finish which at least sort of makes up for the sweetness by providing a strong bitter character. Not sure what I expected, but wasn’t a huge fan.

Bottle from the Davis Co-Op. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma starts with celery and develops to dark treacly malt and a hint of chocolate. Med body or better. Flavor is dark treacly malt, a little green/hop/herb and some dusty/dark/earthy chocolate. It's pretty dry and decently bitter. Hop for sure, but I can't identify it. Pretty nice Black IPA. Nicer than many.
