4.3/5 rDev +1.9%
A-Black in the glass, two finger off white head with some lacing.
S-Good deal of roasted malt, some pine and a nice hop presence.
T-Nice balance of roasted malt and hops. Nice bitterness some pine and citrus with a tad bit of coffee.
M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated and creamy.
O-One of the best Black IPAs I've tasted, can't believe it took me so long to try this beer.

4.56/5 rDev +8.1%
Poured into a typical beer glass.
Opinion slightly biased due to tasting several Double IPAs prior.
Minimal head, lacing was decent. Black as motor oil with a light head.
Aroma was very hop-forward, very citrus, somewhat pine, hints of roasted coffee.
Very musky, skunky, dank, pungent smell overall.
Taste was incredibly bitter, very hoppy at first and then lots of coffeebean and dark chocolate.
After slowly enjoying the beverage I found more flavors coming through; strong tea and pine flavors, and an incredibly-satisfying hoppy bitterness.
Very impressed with the flavor.
Heavy, creamy mouthfeel, but not as thick as you'd expect such a dark beer to be.
Very viscous, found myself drinking it very slowly even after thoroughly tasting it.
Overall this has become one of my favorite beers with just one tasting session. I've bought another bottle and will enjoy it again soon. I highly recommend trying a piece of dark chocolate (>85%) with the drink after thoroughly tasting it.
