I am still plowing through my backlog of bottles, but I may break down and hit some CANs in the next couple of days. In the meantime, here is a curiosity that I picked up at Hunger 'n' Thirst a while back. I am not a fan of the style, but I will try anything once.

From the bottle: "Black India Pale Ale Brewed With Coffee".

The beauty of these really dark beers is that when I employ an aggro pour, the pseudo-cascade is extremely visible. I sat back in awe and watched it settle into two fingers of very dense, deep-tan/light-brown head with good retention. Color was an Opaque Black (SRM = 44) and it looked like the depths of outer space in my glass. Nose was both dark-roasted coffee and fresh mint, possibly spearmint or perhaps peppermint. Very nice! Mouthfeel was slightly full, just a step above medium. The taste was what I want from this Cascadian/Dark/Black IPA style - mint, chocolate and coffee! I was actually getting the hops, which is not usually the case. I was really reminded of a York Peppermint Patty, especially since I was getting the sensation. Finish was semi-dry and very pleasant. I could drink a few of these before reaching for a regular AIPA.
