This pours dark, oily brown, not much light passing through. Foams up a huge three finger high latte tan head that is made up of loose bubbles that coat the glass in large and loose webs of lacing.

A smack of robust roasted malt, coffee and bread with equally as profound citrus, pine and dank herbs from the hops. The background gets somewhat smokey and the earthiness of the herbal hops lingers.

Roasted malt with caramel and sticky sweetness with a slight coffee ground acidity. Hops are medium strength with a peak of yelow citrus followed by oily pine that sticks through the palate and lingers into the finish. After the drink there is a moderate bitterness with the sticky malt hanging on to couple with some alcohol and the oily pine resin.

Goes a bit flat after a while, better cold. Medium bodied with alcohol peeking through the malt curtains. Rather sticky and it takes a white for the bitterness to come though and being to dry the palate.

A good black IPA, peaks early with the aroma but can't quite follow up with such promise. Balanced malt and hops it just need more carbonation and a brighter hops to pop the way some others are able to do,
