I am still waiting to find a black IPA that can beat Unita's Dubhe. This is far from being that one.
A- The head was massive, i know how to pour a beer and regardless the head came out huge. Its a dark brown more than a black.
A- Licorice? or some kind of dark fruit, not sure but I don't find it too pleasent, as well as a grainy smell
T- the taste goes with the smell, taste of licorice mixed with some type of fruit. Very little taste of hops, more of a malt/grain taste, with a very unpleasent finish
M- once you get passed the head its medium bodied, nothing special at all.
O- very disappointed, Total wine BA score is a lie because it rated it as a 93, and for $3.99 for a pint, I thought this would be a steal, was definitely the opposite.

I think everyone is rating this as an IPA. It definitely isn't that. It tastes more like a light stout. Pours dark. Not quit pitch black, but very dark brown. No clarity at all. Small head that doesn't really last. Virtually no lacing. Has a roasted almost sweet smell. Maybe chocolate? Maybe caramel? The smell is the best quality. Dark, malty up front taste with a moderately bitter roasted aftertaste. Again, maybe chocolate? Sweet. Could be raisins? There a dark fruity taste. Virtually no bitterness from hops. It is lacking balance. Not bad but would buy many other beers before this one. Wouldn't ever turn it down, though.
