3.54/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a dark ruby brown with a finger width of beige head.

Smell - Leafy and piney hops, coffee bean, roasted malts, hint of vanilla bean.

Taste - Bold roasted flavours of malts and coffee bean up front, along with the hops and hint of vanilla. Roasted flavour lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - An interesting take on the Cascadian by adding so much roasted/coffee bean character to it. A bit malt heavy and I would like to taste more hops in this.

4.2/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a Carlsberg tulip tall pint glass. From notes.

A very dark walnut black body with a very yellow three finger head. Big retention on the head, with circular rings of lace.

Nose is a great citrus grapefruit zest and flesh. Hop forward almost west coast sense, maybe even north west style. Little roast character it seems, but a great hop front. Incredibly fruity.

Palate does an almost 180 on the hop front. Hop angle comes out with juice orange and tea herbal bitters. Malt roast character a little bit on the finish, with a good black tea like finish. Light bodied palate with some juicy character.

Overall I have never had a black ipa smell and taste like this and be so varied. It seems liie a mix of American and English IPA style in a black ale. Very memorable, love it!

Pours a dark brown colour with about two fingers of an offwhite head that disipates rathery quickly. Smells of cocoa, earthy/citrus hops, roasted malt, coffee and sweet molasses. The taste follows the smell with chocolate and cocoa. Reminds me a bit of a stout. Little bit of coffee bitterness. Some caramel and malt sweetness. Bitter, earthy and citrus hops. Slightly grassy aftertaste. Roasted, bready malts and a bit of nuttyness. Medium light, carbonated, dry mouthfeel. Definitly worth having again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Thanks again Colt for including it in the last box! The label on this bottle is awesome - def keeping it around.

A - pours a medium brown color with a one finger kahki colored head. Head dissipated almost immediately leaving a small puddle of foam left in the center of the glass.

S - predominantly cocoa and chocolate, slightly roasty with some coffee character. Molasses. Doughnut. I am surprised there's not much in the way of hops except some earthyness.

T - the nose follows the aroma with lots of chocolate and cocoa - very stoutish. Some coffee with some caramel sweetness. Still not getting much in flavor hops except a slight grassy, earthly profile. Nutty. Slightly bready and malty. A nice, fairly clean, firm biterness linger slightly providing depth without wrecking my palate.

M - medium-light bodied.

D - somewhat high for me. Consumed most of the bottle during the review.

Overall, a nice beer. They could just call it a hoppy stout instead and almost get away with it. I would like to have seen some more flavor hops in it. A nice citrus profile would go well with the dark grains in this one.
