Poured into a snifter.

5.0 A: Black color. Nearly three fingers of creamy, tan head. Retention is very good and tons of lacing. Well done here.

4.5 S: Well they certainly put some hops in this. This smells more like a regular DIPA with the black part being subtle. Floral, piney, citrusy, and even a bit herbal. The malts below give a hint of coffee and an even smaller hint of chocolate.

3.5 T: Like usual, the hops and the dark malts butt heads. Roastiness lends a bitterness that is exacerbated by the bittering hops. The roastiness itself is in fisticuffs with the pine and citrus notes though this beer puts them together slightly better than most. Herbalness is out of place all together. Chocolate hits on the tail end.

3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation and a pleasant creaminess. Bitter, roasty aftertaste is a bit off-putting though.

3.0 D: Despite my efforts, I've only found one black IPA that integrates the roast and the hops well. This isn't it, unfortunately. Flavors fighting each other is too dangerous for this to continue.
