From the current Beer Camp variety pack under an Alias.
Listed as "Beer Camp #94 Belgian-Style Black IPA."
Clear black colored beer with a small brown colored head.
Smells hoppy and deeply burnt. with a carrot scent. Scents of coffee and patent malt with the spicy scent of Belgian beer yeast. Some coriander and ginger with a slight sour edge. Strange aroma of parsley.
Starts out deeply roasted in flavor with slight chocolate. Slight bitter stout like edge to this but is very mildly flavored and smooth. Belgian beer yeast flavors are in here but the patent malt really hides them.
Mouthfeel is quite good.
Overall a tasty beer. The Patent malt elements are stronger than the Belgian parts.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at California Kebab in Pacific Beach. Very dark in the nonic. Long-lasting foam with plenty of lacing down the tall glass. Spritzy on the tongue, and that lasts to the bottom of the pint.
Flavor is quite striking-- there is a malty sweetness but it has an intriguing nutty, even coconutty taste with a big, spicy quality. Dark roasted malt with a hint of mint. the caramel is substantial with some burnt sugar. A tasty sipping beer with more alcohol than is probably needs. On tap, this is one of the better dark IPAs I've had. I liked it a lot better than the bottle Beer Camp version, which I just had two days ago.
Serving type: on-tap
