A 12 oz bottle into my Duvel Stefan Glerum. Best by 1/18/13. 8.99$ per 4 pack at Total Wine Winston-Salem.

A. 4.5. Poured freely provides a nice 2 finger light brown head. Holds and sticks well. Black with a little red to dark brown if you hold it just right.

S. 4.5. Hops. Piney citrusy grapefruit hops. Blindfolded, I wouldn't know there was a black to this double. Smells earthy and west coast.

T. 4.5. Delicious. Hoppy and malty and working. Citrus hops with a dark twist. Bitter dry finish. Hardly any alcohol burn for the abv.

M. 4.5. Really good carbonation that works well with the oily feel. High enough hops to linger on the back of my tongue.

O. 4.5. I have had my fair share of these in the last few years. An exceptional black IPA and the price point is great. I readily recommend if you like dark hoppy beers. It holds it's own. As far as the hemp seed oil.. I better not fail a drug test from drinking this! Drink responsibly!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, chocolate and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong hops bitterness followed by bitter-sweet flavors of dark chocolate and black coffee. There’s a hearty roasted malt character and a touch of an alcohol sting but not much of a balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are several others in the style that I would pick first.

Into a nonic:

A: deep black colored body yielding a nice two finger slightly tan around the sides head that lasts for a good three minutes before dieing. Nice foamy lacing in rings appears.

S: hops up front with some slight malty yet slight coffee notes coming out as the beer warms.

T: pretty much the same but in a very good way

M: medium and is very smooth and creamy around the tongue

O: I am thoroughly impressed, and am glad I picked this up. This is a very good American Black Ale. I'm currently having some horseradish cheese along with this and am really loving how they both go well together, at least in my opinion.

Dark brown in the wine glass. Big spicy hoppy aroma is intriguing.

This starts out with a promising malty and roasted flavor, but turns rapidly into a dark searing offensive. Plenty of hops-- actually a vast amount of hops. That wouldn't be so disturbing except for the dank, dirty flavor. Something like charred rubber and rusty water. A real adventure in aggressive brewing, but I find it thoroughly undrinkable. Shame to waste the alcohol.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at the Utah Liquor Store in Sugar House.
