look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Black lagoon body with a creamy, lite mocha head which stays put.

S: Roasty chalky chocolate. Not burnt at all makes it an enjoyable roastiness. Big pungent American hops are not tamed. Smells thick like hersey syrup. Clean aroma without any booziness.

T: Malts and hops fight for attention. Smooth, creamy, roasted chocolate up front to a pungent, herbal hop flavor.

M: Unique blend of a chalky dry feel with a slightly sticky lingering feel.

O: Great interpretation of a Black IPA. The mouthfeel I expect, not as thick or bitter as a stout, with a hop presence that is richly bitter but not over-top-taste that sits on pallet taking away from the malts.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours out a little darker than cola with two fingers of light brown head. Good retention and heavy lacing.

S: Piney hops, carmel and roasted malt, and a little grapefruit.

T: Taste matches the nose. Some milk chocolate and earthiness in there too. Not even a trace of booze. Somehow this is 109 IBU and I had no idea. Terrific balance.

M: Medium to heavy body. Creamy and smooth.

O: A bottle was gifted to me and I'm sad I haven't been able to find it on my own. This is a great brew. Not popping with flavor but a real easy drinker for an imperial. Plus, the creaminess is something I don't usually see in black IPAs and it is a great fit.

Best Before 12/30/12

A: Pours a very dark brown color with 2 fingers worth of tannish brown head

S: Some nice dark fruit and roasty malts up front, along with chocolate and some earthy hops

T: Follows the nose, with the addition of some resinous pine and coffee. Complex with waves of different flavors

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: A very good black ale with plenty of hops and enough malts to keep it balanced. Very easy to drink given the abv. I say we have a winner here
