3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Straight forward with chocolate malt, roasted barley and piney hops.
A: Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. A great looking beer.
T: Initially a mix of roasted chocolate malts, grapefruit and citrus hops with a bit of bitterness. Next some pine hops and a bit more bitterness with some coffee notes and a hint of bready malt notes. Finishes with a mix of chocolate malts, pine hops, citrus zest, and some roasted coffee notes.
P: Feels a bit thin, but improved as it warmed.
O: The hops start strong, but kinda get lost in the taste and excessive warmth. Decent Black IPA/CDA.

Decent Black IPA. The hop character leads the way, but is balanced nicely by roasty malt. A good blend of hoppy IPA aspects and roasty stout character. This seemed to be a bit of a flash in the pan style, but this is a solid example of how it should be done. (15/20 BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2016
