Bottle is aged a bit unfortunately. No bottle date so I have no idea how long. Probably a year.
A: Very dark brown pour but not quite black. Big fluffy chocolate milk colored head. Fades slowly, very slowly. Nice island of foam persists. Excellent fluffy lacework left behind too.
S: Mild roasted malt with a bit of char. Some mild pine with it and a little dark fruit. Kinda bland.
T: Mild char up front with hints of dark chocolate. Hint of pine in there just for a second. Kind of a chalky char in the middle and into the finish. Chalky and dry on the back end.
M: Medium bodied but chalky and drying (especially in the aftertaste).
O: Pretty plain and somewhat bland black ale. Very little hoppiness, I blame the possible age on the bottle. Having said that, they didn't bother to bottle date so there's no way to know anyway. I will give it the benefit of the doubt but regardless, it's pretty middle-of-the-road.

22oz bomber: this one pours a dark chocolate brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head on it that didn’t linger long. It has a surprisingly lighter nose. Malts, but not much sweetness at all. Perhaps a bit of chocolate roast and pine. It tastes OK, but I’m not sure why they call it a black IPA. Almost no bitterness to it. There is a good malt body, with some chocolate and roasted notes trying to peak thru but no real sweetness either. It needs a whole lot more hops to be in an IPA category. Let’s just call it a very good strong porter.
