Pours inky black with a quick medium brown head and only faint lacing that lasts. Nose is strong hops, fruit, booze, and a bit of roasted coffee. Dark fruits, some bitter hops and a nice roasty flavor on the front. Finish is bitter and crisp. Decent beer.

Great beer, representing a style that is usually all over the lot. I usually think of a Black IPA as being a mild balanced IPA with the balance usually in favor of roasted malt. As an "Imperial" Black IPA, this flavor profile has to be powered up a bit. The result is kind of an Imperial Stout with a fairly mild IPA chaser.

It poured into my pint glass as a dark black or brown color. A lot of red highlights come through when held to a light. The head is medium size, light brown with a bit better than average retention. Some lacing on the glass.

Smell is eye opening. A Double stout with rich malt aroma, a bit of chocolate and a vinuous (port wine) presence.

Taste starts out the same as the aroma, but a fairly strong bitter hoppiness emerges as well. A nice blend, good transition and strong flavor.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy until the hops kick in. It becomes more crisp at that point, but never is there an alcohol harshness.

An outstanding beer and a good take on the Black Ale style.
