@TCBW Dark brown colour with small head going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has roasted malts, espresso coffee, grass and pines hops. Taste has lots of roasted malts but still really strong hop flavours. Almost like Black IPA. Dark chocolate blends in with the grassy hops quite nicely. Full body and medium carbonation.

DocJitsu (1827) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a tall tan head. Dark roasted malt nose with a pretty strong hop character being noted. Smells a lot like a black IPA. Drinks a lot like one too. Except that the malt presence is more prominent. The mouthfeel is as if there is a thin layer of air separating the surface of the tongue and the beer. Gets mildly astringent.
