A: Deep, deep brown with a couple fingers of foamy, latte-coloured head, dissipating leaving lacing around the glass.

S: No malt, all hops. With my eyes closed, I might think this was an IPA. It's appealing, but if I'm to rate according to style, this is lacking.

T: The hops are running the show. The "brazen and daring roasted malt base" mentioned on the label just isn't there for me. It's not bad -- it's actually an enjoyable enough brew -- but it's not what I was hoping for.

F: Smooth, medium-bodied.

O: This one misses the mark. With all hops and no malt flavours, it's not what an American Black Ale / Black IPA / Cascadian Dark Ale should be.
