Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, char, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder, char, earth, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, but the mix of aromas I am getting is slightly better to me.

Serving type: bottle.

A: deep brown, almost black; less than a 1 finger tan head that dissipated quickly to a thin ring around the edge; little lacing;

S: deeply roasted malt; some bittersweet chocolate; a little smokiness;

T: upfront, it follows the nose; from mid-palate on some coffee kicks in and at the finish, it's all coffee; some alcohol sweetness from mid-palate through the finish; low bitterness;

M: full bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: more malt that hops; I prefer the opposite;

Pours a black body with one finger head and has some minor lace. The aroma is mix of roasted and bready malts with some earthy, slightly citric hops. Smooth, even a little creamy at times, well-balanced as a minor citric hop profile blends with roasted malts and little bit of sweet malts (I get hints of caramel and chocolate after some sips). More malty than hoppy but this is one of the few Black IPAs that I have found that make the hops noticeable AND greatly employed by the beer's malty profile (not a malt/hop mess).
