look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - dark black, opaque like tar, one inch head, good lacing

S - molasses, caramel, coffee, roasted malt, hops

T - coffee, caramel, molasses, very malty, strong bitterness on the aftertaste, can definitely taste of the hops in the beer

M - thick, creamy

O - Delicious caramel and molasses. Perfectly balanced malt and hops. The bitterness of the IPA balances perfectly with all of the other flavors. This is an excellent beer.

Let me just say that I was a little wary when I purchased this beer. I'm not very partial to black IPA's, as I've had bad experiences with them. Actually, I purchased this beer as part of a four-pack that had three other stone beers I absolutely love. Here goes:

A: Very good. Pours thick and pitch-black. Given the alcohol content and presence of roasted malt, this isn't surprising. I do take a little issue with the size of the head, but the lacing was rather good (good protein content).

S: Again, very good. Roasted malt predominated by cascade and chinook hops. Slightly imbalanced, as the hops predominate, but good nonetheless.

T: WOW. Simply brilliant. A great interplay between the hops and the malt. The first taste one gets is the deep, dark-roasted chocolate malt. Chocolate and coffee predominate. Then, the malt is taken over by the hops, which impart flavors of grapefruit, lemon and pine. After swallowing, the taste of the burnt malt lingers in the back of the throat. Delicious.

M: Gorgeous. Nice and thick. It glides down the throat creamily.

O: A great beer. It has restored my faith in black IPA's. A great balance between malt and hops. Nearly perfect.
