Delicious and smooth. It smells like chocolatey, roasty goodness with some mocha. I wish I could wear this as perfume. The taste matches the aroma, plus great hoppy flavor and bitterness. This is a wonderful, good looking brew that I could drink every day (if not for the price; haven't seen this bomber under 10 dollars around here!), my only complaint is the slight aftertaste. It's a bit astringent and aspirin like, more so than other IPAs/APAs I've had. Still, pretty amazing!

This pours a very dark brown/black color with a foamy light brown head. The aroma is rich and hoppy. The flavor is rich and bold with deep robust tone but still very hoppy. This finishes with an oak after taste and leaves a lingering bitterness. Very well made for the style.
