Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #51 (April 2011):
Fitting name for this black, oily, sticky-smelling hemp seed-infused Black Ale—or, as they call it, an Imperial Black IPA. By far one of the most epic heads; the black color of this brew is inviting, too. Thick resin of citric hop and hemp in the nose, a bit piney with mild chicory and cocoa powder from the malt, and ripe fruit from the alcohol. Pungent hop smack tackles the palate hard, sticky resin with evergreen and mixed citric flavors. Malt sweetness and the blackness behind it break through just enough to keep the beer in balance. Alcohol is a bit amped up, but not hot. Hop and hemp flavors stay for a while during a semi-roasted bittersweet finish. Wow, a lot to take in. But in the end, this ale works, as all flavors meld well together.
