It produced a 3 finger beige head. Left nice lacing. Beer color is an ultra deep brown, so at first glance it looks black.
The aroma is of mainly citrus hops, with a hint of pine, caramel, and pepper. Very nice!
The taste is similar but with the malts coming forward more. Light lingering bitterness. Slight bit of noticable alcohol on the end. Sticky/upper medium mouth-feel. Medium carbonation.
Very tasty. Can't go wrong with Surly, or 3 Floyd's stuff. Sorry, but never had anything from the 3rd collaberator, Real Ale Brewing.

4.1/5 rDev -3.1%

Pitch black body allows no light to pass through. A thick, light brown head with great retention and lacing.
This is a potent black ale, and I love it! More pine and tropical fruit than any other beer I've had to date. Very fresh aroma - clean and earthy. A hint of roasted malt and cola.
This hop forward beer packs a punch. Plenty of earthy pine notes and some and a bit of grapefruit and tangerine. A malty backbone, rich with bittersweet cocoa and roasted coffee. Has an interesting sweet flavor on the finish and it clashes a bit with the booziness of this brew. However, it's still highly enjoyable.
Quite thick for the style and lightly carbonated. Dry finish.
A fantastic brew that is best enjoyed one slow sip at a time. The explosive flavor of this one will catch you off guard if you don't prepare yourself. Worth every penny!
