4.45/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Best by 7/23/14

Pours a dark brown approaching black color, decent sized light tan head, fades at a decent rate but leaves a huge amount of lacing on the glass and a creamy looking cap sticks around to a long while.

Smell starts with a good hit of piney hops with the dark roasted malt taking the back seat in the nose.

Taste actually goes the other way around now with the roasted malt backbone starting first, it's very roasted with a burnt bitterness to it, the bitterness is compounded with an aftertaste of piney hops, dark bitter chocolate lends a slight but fleeting sweetness, throughly thick and creamy as if it's a milk stout, definitely one of the fullest bodies for a black IPA I've had.

4.2/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Opaque black, 2 finger off white head that settles into a thin crown on top. Decent amount of lacing.

S: Dank floral/piney hop aromas. Roasted malts with some chocolate.

T: Big roasted malts, piney hops, citrus zest and sweet chocolate.

M: Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Bitter, somewhat dry finish with a faint presence of alcohol.

O: A very good, drinkable, complex beer. Malt and hops do a good job of working together without overpowering the other. Will definitely drink again.
