22 oz bomber pours a near-black color with a few highlights around the edges. Dense cap of brown head. Ok retention and nice lacing.

Nose is more IPA than stout. Lots of pine and citrus, fruit aromas galore. Stout is there with a little bit of roast, but really this smells just like a Black IPA.

Taste is definitely a nice blend of hoppy IPA and roasted stout. Lots of hop flavor and bitterness. This pretty much is a Black IPA. Extreme departure from a traditional Black & Tan…which is ok, cause it is a pretty tasty beer. But being a big fan of a good B&T, this one was actually a bit of a disappointment. Fun to try, but I don’t think I would buy it again.

Purchased at On the rocks, Lawrence, KS

App- Looks solely like a good stout to me. Thick dark brown with an almost black pour. BORIS really comes out in this one. A good 1-1/2 finger of light tan head. Great cling lines all over the glass.

Smell- Much more good stout notes similar to the app. This had a bit of thick coffee with some burnt roast notes. I get touches of grain and oatmeal. None of the 67% of IPA really shines.

Taste- Again I get much more of the BORIS on this one. Thick and coffee notes with a little bit of grain. On each sip of the 2nd pour a little bit more of thick malty citrus seeps into the flavor but not much.

Mouth- A low to medium body with a low medium carbonation. Thick oats and malty grapefruit residual flavors develop.

Drink- For the 1st of the style it wasn't half bad. Seemingly one sided but I guess if I have more I have a good base of which to judge which way this will go.
