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.

12oz bottle smuggled home from Toronto in my luggage. Bottled 5/25/12. Served in a Red Brick snifter. 

Pours a deep, near black brown with a thick two finger dark cream head. Semi opaque, allowing light through around the edges. Plenty of lacing left caked on the glass. 

Smells great. Some orangey hops immediately give way to smokey malts. 

Taste is the expected mix of citrus hoppy and roasty malts. Well balanced. 

Medium feel with light to moderate carbonation. No noticeable alcohol. Nice dry roasty hoppy finish. 

Based on the couple brews I tried from Flying Monkeys, I'm gonna need to try more. Nothing show stopping in the Netherworld but it's quite good and very easy to drink.
