Aroma of warm maple syrup and bread. Jet black in color with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Tastes like dark roast coffee and plenty of hop spice. Really bitter finish. Lovely beverage.

Pours cola brown with lasting just off white head and lace. Aroma is roasted malts with a pine hop that reminds me of creosote. Taste is of roasted malts, a bit of coffee and chocolate but the finish is a bright pine hop. Interesting.

Solid but unremarkable black IPA. Malty and toasty with mild piney notes. Drinkable, fine.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Meh. Its fine. Aroma is some faint hops and not as much toasty malt goodness as youd expect. Taste is much lighter than I thought with a strong bitter finish. The sting of the hops is there but the dark malt seems to be more color than flavor. Its fine just not that memorable.

tia (1972) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle. Been in the fridge for about two months. Very dark with oatmeal head. Getting an unfortunate amount of perfume on the nose. Flavor is perfumey, too. Dang, another unfresh one. Stupid bottle shops.

DiarmaidBHK (4455) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Lots of roasted malt notes on the tongue. It tastes kind of like tar which is both interesting and extremely off-putting. Its not my favorite style to be honest so this feels kind of like a best-case scenario for it.
