Bottle. The pour was a thick dark black with a large (2-3 finger) medium brown creamy head which had good retention reducing to a thick puddling thus creating some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a pine hop, a roasted grain malt and a moldy yeast with notes of coffee, caramel, licorice, chocolate and a decent alcohol tinge.
The taste was a hoppy, malty and a tad sweet with a very mild hint of caramel and chocolate at first then progressed into a bitter, roasty, hoppy flavor with a big coffee note and a mild alcohol presence at the end. The flavor hung on for a good long time proceeding the swallow letting the hoppy roastiness settle in.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond medium in body with a dry, oily texture and a nice lively carbonation.
Overall an exceptionally well balanced Black IPA with just the right amount of everything working together.
With Audrie at Brass Tap on the patio, Coral Springs, pours a deep black pour with a beige head. Nose is roasted malt with citrus . Taste is roasted malt with citrus and softer pine and resin....silky and smooth on the palate. Finishes on the same tasting notes .

Jag har så många öl att betygsätta avyer en stor åldrig öldrinkning med min goda vän Jesse, att jag inte har tid att betygsätta alla dessa och i många fall hade för öl att minnas storheten i dessa öl. Till ära för mitt svenska arv, jag skickar detta på svenska för alla recensioner från den dagen. Tack Gud för god öl !!

Black pour with a thick, caramel coloured head. Looks the business. Roasty, dark chocolate, toffee, pine aromas.
