Dark brown color with a light tan huge foamy head.
Aroma is sweet and malty with a little bit of a roasted character.
Taste is roasted malts and caramel with a sweet note. Little bit of pine and not overly bitter. Slight coffee flavor and as it warms all the little flavors become larger.
Not boozy at all for such a high abv. Delicious version if a black ipa.

A- Very dark brown, settles to a near black body in the glass. Frothy tan head that leaves a ring of bubbles on top, with some lacing.

S- Bitter, piney hops cut through a roasted malt aroma. Lots of pine and roasty malts, but not much else.

T- Really similar to the aroma, with big roasty malts playing off of lots of piney hops. Slight herbal hop flavor comes through on the back end.

M- Smooth with a big body. Slightly more alcohol burn than a lot of the black IPAs I have had.

O- For a style I really enjoy, this one was not as great as I was hoping for. A nice example of a stronger black IPA, but not one of the better ones I have had.
