Notes/Commercial Description:
Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

4.4/5  rDev +17.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a complete black with thin head that leaves a sticky lace behind

S: dark roasted and sweet malts hit the nose, some hop presence, but very, very slight. Smells like a sort of coffee, chocolate blend, a little sour also.

T: A light burnt malt taste, quickly followed by bitterness and many levels of it. All the way through the finish the bitterness takes over the malt sweetness. The dark roasted malts also provide their own bitterness to coincide with the hops and an earthy quality to the brew.

M: medium body, carbonation is average.

O: A great black IPA, all of the flavors are balanced well, a definite must have.

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.
