3.6/5 rDev +3.4%
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no visibility. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Smokey, roasted, chocolate, earthy notes, and some citrusy hops.
Taste: Smells better than it tastes. The smoke is overbearing over the roasted, chocolate, earthy, and citrus hops. Lingering bitterness in the rear too.
Mouthfeel: Smokey, lingering bitterness, light bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Pretty average black ale. I feel the smoke could be tsmed down a bit in exchange for more pine or citrusy hops I find in other black ales.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Black with about one finger of beige head. Mild lacing on the glass.
Smell: Citrus, hops, malts and some coffee.
Mouthfeel/Taste: A little rought medium bodied. Taste of hops and citrus with hints of coffee and malts.
Overall: Interesting brew, to me it seems like they took an IPA and a Stout and mixed them together.

Black and opaque, a close look reveals streams of bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass. A thick and rocky head of beige sea foam lingers loooong, receding very slowly and leaving oily legs of lace up the glass. Low aroma of cocoa and floral hops.
Rich flavor of darkly roasted malt, with roasty bitterness, some cocoa, understated hops, perhaps subtle English type, but seems too subtle for the style. Firm bitterness offsets the malt, but could be more from the roast malt than hops. Fruity esters rise up in the finish, perhaps from the Ringwood or English yeast that Shipyard is known for.
Powdery and tannic mouthfeel. Good beer overall, but feels more like a brown ale than black IPA.

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is bursting with a perfect blend of roasted and burnt malt, coffee, lemons and pine. Wonderful.
The taste has a watery start, roasted malt middle and then picks up some big grapefruit and pine bitterness middle to end.
The texture is crisp.
The aroma is amazing and the taste isn't bad. Very enjoyable.
