Poured into a Ranger Creek tulip from a bomber

A: Looks like a heavy porter or a stout, but with some of the most beautiful head I've ever seen on a beer. It's a very lightly tan head that sticks around forever and laces immensely.
S: Doesn't smell at all like it looks. While it looks like a porter or a stout, it smells more like a pale ale or an IPA. There is a definite citrus lean to the nose, and very little of the roasty malt scents I was expecting... a very nice surprise.
T: The taste is again surprising, as it does not taste like a black IPA like it pretends to be. There is a malt heaviness to it, but there is not that roasty feel that you would expect from something this black. Again it seems more like a pale ale than anything, but this is far from pale! It's a conundrum of a beer for sure.
M: Smooth, velvety, it coats the tongue without being thick or chalky.
D: For a nearly 9% beer, this goes down almost too easily.

A- Pours a dark blackish red letting very little light pass through with a tan, 1 finger head.

S- Smell is predominately hoppy with floral characteristics and dark fruit undertones.

T- Taste starts off like a weak stout with coffee and dark flavors followed by a hop bitterness reminiscent of an IPA.

M- Thick and highly carbonated.

D- This is a very drinakble brew, easily sessionable.
