A: Dark, black oil color. Thick, light khaki head. Crystally lacing

S: Very earthy, wood, slight fruit hops and slight grassiness. I actually smell a little toasted marshmallow as I keep drinking it.

T: Very mellow, subdued and earthy. Smooth and not has heavy as you would expect. Just a faint bitterness to let you know that the hops are there.

M: Not thick, not light, just right. Little carbonation with chalky finish

O: Awesome, awesome beer. Black IPAs are always a hit or miss for me and this is right on. Would definitely drink again and it's probably my favorite bottled Stone Brewery beer.

Update: Just tried this beer with steak, blue cheese and soy sauce and it tasted amazing. This beer goes perfect with really savory food.
