12 oz into a snifter...big black beer with the head of an IPA (if darker for the malt beneath it). Plenty of lacing. Tons of hops in the nose, with a dryness to them moreso than in a big paler IPA. Loads of hop bitterness on the tongue with some smoky after-tones. Cheers to Stone for making a very interesting beer in a style that doesn't come in six packs. Why aren't black IPAs more popular? At least most of the brewers who decide to make one know what they're doing. Mouthfeel is excellent and I recommend trying this beer.
