A- black with two finger head
S- nice hoppy scent, smokey, some coffee, very earthy
T/M- dark fruit,hoppy and smokey, great balance if you like hoppy stout. Coffee after taste stays around for a while.
O- very nice black IPA, glad i got a chance to try this during the twelve days of stone, at WOB. This blends hops coffee and smoke perfectly.

Serving type: on-tap

The ALMOST perfect beer...
Held up in my brandy glass with a wonderful tan foamy head. I sat at Vinsettas Garage
(Berkeley Mi) and looked at it for 5 minutes. The smell was chocolate/coffee/ molasses. it entered my mouth with excitement. slick/soft mouthfeel. rich dark espresso with a soft bitter finish. oh my deliciousness.
