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

Serving: Bomber into a very, very tall glass.

A: Very, very dark brown. Opaque. Can't see through it. Poured a 3/4 inch of very thick head which has remained a while. Sticks to the glass with gobs of lacing.

S: Fairly strong piney, citrusy hops. Slight dark malt to it. Not what you expect when you pour a beer as dark as this.

T: Has toasted, chocolately dark malt character to it, almost towards a stout, but the hop profile is definitely an IPA. Aggressively bitter but not overly so, the malts are not overpowered. They mix great together here.

M: Feels great in the mouth.

D: This is a strong one, but very drinkable. I would drink them till I fell off my chair (slowly).

Served on tap at Pizza Paradiso (DC).

Appearance: Extremely black. Held up to a light a couple feet away a bit of light penetrates, but that's it. Dark ivory head. Fairly heavy lacing as it goes down.

Smell: Quite hoppy.

Taste: Bit of a punch in the mouth if you're think Black Ale (like 1554) instead of Black IPA. A bit smoother than you'd probably expect for a Stone IPA, with almost a bit of molasses in there.

Drinkability: Might be difficult to drink to many as it is quite hoppy, but I'd love to start the night with 1 or 2 to get things going. Will set quite the bar to measure up to though!
