Dark, sweet, vanilla notes, chocolate flavor, spices (chicory?), balanced and smooth with a somewhat peaty and toasted malt finish that reminds one of a hearty stout. 8.6/10 not spectacular and doesn't remind one of an IPA, where are the hops?

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

Poured into a snifter from a bomber. Review from 4/14/14.

Color is black with a thin tan head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma is grassy hops with caramel sweetness.
Flavor is intense piney hops on the palate that mellows to allow some deep roasted coffee to show through. Finish is mildly bitter with a malty aftertaste.
Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall, an excellent example of this style of beer. Definitely in the top tier.
