Had this on cask at the Avenue Pub on 4/29/11.
Pours a deep, dark opaque brown with a 3-finger tan head. Lots of lacing.
The smell is mostly piney malt with a hint of charred malts. The taste is burnt, bitter malts with pine and floral hops. The hops are prevalent, the malts are easy to pick up. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, crisp and carbonated. Feel reminds me a lot of Guinness.
This is a nicely hopped Black IPA. The toasted malt taste does just enough to offset the hops. Watch that 8.7 ABV.
Serving type: cask

12oz bottle from Stone variety pack, poured into pint glass. Enjoy by 10/02/14.
Black body with reddish hints when held up against a light. Small tan colored head, well carbonated, and good lacing.
Faint sweetness on the nose.
Taste was very nice, sweet with only a very faint bitterness. Roasted malts come out at the end. (Similar pattern to Arrogant Bastard) Mouth was around medium.
I personally do not really understand Black Ales/IPA's, seems to me there are always much better options on either the IPA or stout side. This one seems to favor the stout side. Taste seem to improve as the ale warmed up toward room temperature. Overall, an enjoyable drink.
