Review was taken the day the 2013 Beer Camp variety pack arrived here at home. I'm assuming the Belgian Style black IPA #94 and the BC #94- Sleight of hand are the same beer though this said nothing about sleight of hand. Just the number 94 matches along with the style.

12 oz brown Sierra Nevada style shorty bottle with fantastic Beer Camp logo and label. This was poured into a Belgian style stemmed tulip. Note: the beer camp series labeling and art really describe for me the style of craft brewing in California. Good stuff!

A - it definitely pours dark. Black in fact. A rich black. When held to the light the deep ruby dark red shines through, but this thing is black. Head comes out very nice, darker side of off white to a tan coloring. It's creamy and lasts a good while. A nice sized ring of lacing leaves pretty good stick as well.

S - woodsy character up front. Like a man's man cologne only not. Soft coffee and burnt chocolate malt make up a nice base. Hops finally begin to show themselves with a fruity tropical like aroma. Very odd flavors, but this isn't a bad thing. It smells wonderful. The funky Belgian style yeast blends perfectly.

T - smoked coffee beans start things off with tropical fruits with lemon highlighting the fruit notes. Dark chocolate creeps up and slides to the back making way for more of that down right unique Belgian yeast strain. The hop profile In this flavor is fruity dominance with some excellent Belgian spices.

M - good feel and textured very well. Gets the flavors to touch every inch of the palate. Excellent SN style thickness to the body with an upper-medium body. Nearly full and packed with flavor. Unique flavor, but good flavor. Very enjoyable.

O - love the beer camp releases. This may be the most enjoyable Beer Camp offering I've had. Not sure, its the best, but definitely on top of my personal favorite Camp releases. I'd love to have this again in the future. It's just an perfectly crafted brew and whoever thought this up did very well at Beer Camp. This takes full advantage of a number of different characteristics and then some. Very good and I can assure you ill buy it again if its ever bottled in the future. #94 is my favorite Camp release yet!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle at 41 F poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours with a big, perfect, light brown head. Fades slowly into lumpy peaks and valleys. Black, opaque. Smell is mild, roast malt.

Taste is roasty porter, slight coffee, with a nice clean finish. Second and third sips show more hoppy bitter depth.

Mouthfeel is creamy and nice. Overall, this is pretty good.
