Pours out a dark brown, almost black, with ruby highlights all around the glass. The thin head is like frothed, whipped milk. The smell is very much like a cross between imperial stout and IPA. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts along with piney hops. Taste leans a lot more towards imperial stout. This actually reminds me of yeti a lot, but with a slightly higher hit of hops. Hop bitterness isn't overbearing. Mild acidity in the finish. Lots of roast in the body. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, but not overly heavy. Delicious.

Poured a black body with two finger head and lace patches. A nice blended aroma of citric, piney hops and roasted malts with a hint of dark chocolate. I found this beer to be what I prefer for a "Black IPA" as the body is thick, almost chewey, has a strong malt base with roasted malts and some sweet chocolate yet the balance is great b/c of a very strong bitter citric hop presence that gives off hoppy goodness on each sip and leads to a crisp and filling finish.

Poured into a tall pint glass: color is dark brown, near black; head is tan and lingers really well, with some nice lacing on the glass.

Smell is malty, light roast, and then bitter hoppy, fresh hops, floral and citrus; malt is really nice in the nose, great roast presence and bitterness.

Taste is very good, great malt balance between roast and sweeter malts, hops are fresh, floral, citrus and bitter to backup the size of this brew.

Mouthfeel is slightly sweeter than other black ipas, but because there's no noticeable alocohol esters this is expected, flavors sit on the tongue and linger well with some presence on the cheeks.

Overall, a great beer, near perfect roast/caramel balance in the nose and taste, but it seems to be malt heavy in the mouthfeel. Great tasting and would look for it again.
