look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a very dark brown/black with a creamy two fingers of light brown head that lingers

S- Dark, syrupy malt aromas, caramel, light woody hop

T- Dark roasted malt, moderate pine and woody hop throughout, bitterness builds in the middle and lingers a bit in the finish

M- Moderate carbonation, light-moderate body, smooth mouthfeel, somewhat thinner than I expected but not in a bad way

O- Reminds me of a very hoppy porter, easy drinking, nice roasty and hoppy bitterness combination

Very roasty with burnt cocoa in the nose. Pours dark brown almost black, creamy brown head. A lot of sweet chocolate in the nose too. Good amount of chocolate in the taste then hops come out in the back. A little bit of licorice. Good balance. Liquory end. Overall, good

A - dark brown with 1" medium tan head; nice lacing

S - smells chocolate and coffee with a hint of citrus

T - great tasting black ipa with chocolate and coffee with only a bit of bitterness

M - mouthfeel is lighter than a stout or porter

O - overall this is a great tasting black ipa but if I drank it without knowing I would have thought it was a stout

Another tick generously shared by Bobby.

A: The pour is a dark mahogany sort of color with a huge tan head that has excellent retention.

S: A really nice nose to this beer consisting primarily of grapefruit with a nice lemon zest thing going on as well. There's quite a bit of floral hop aroma to it and overall it's quite perfumey. Some roast is there, but not as much as usual for a Black IPA.

T: Not as impressive flavor-wise, but still good. It's very bitter with a lot of pine and bitter grapefruit peel. There's a slight astringency as well as some grass hop notes.

M: The body and carbonation are both medium.

D: I've never been terribly impressed by this brewery, but this was really quite good. I would even drink this again.
