MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This floral and roasty Black IPA delights with its cushy mouthfeel and sustained fir-like finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the blackened brown.
-Drinkability is quite high despite the flavor intensity.
-All flavors are ably balanced.
-Roasted malts are soft enough to let the floral hop aromatics shine through.

On tap at American Flatbread Burlington.
