3.7/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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.

Pours a dark chocolate black with raspberry red highlights when held to light. Nice coffee colored fluffy two finger head leaves a thick lace and is slow to recede.
Smells of dark roasted malts, dry cherries and sweet raspberry. Moderate dank pine, and wheat bread crust.
Tastes of bright toasty malts with touch of malt sweetness, dry cherries, and raspberry sweetness, follows the nose well. Mild evergreen hop bitter with a smoky dry chalk middle. A touch of burnt malts on the finish with a tiny bit of metallic tinge.
Feels smooth up front turning thin, with a bit of smoke, and burnt malts, thinning out the carbonation
Overall a pleasant sweetness balanced by a touch of smoke and slightly burnt malts, light in general but good and refreshing dark IPA.
