Poured from a bottle purchased at the Tommyknocker Brewery into a snifter. Dated best by 12/9/13.
Appearance - very dark, black as a stout, thin layer of a dark beige, almost brown head. Lacing is adequate.
Smell - from the bottle; chocolate, some rye malt; from the glass the hops are more profound.
Taste - starts off with chocolate, some coffee and a hint of rye malt, finishes with the hops taking the lead.
Feel - not too heavy, easy to drink, well balanced beer!
Overall - I'm becoming a huge fan of the Black Ale/IPA! This one isn't as complex as I'd like, but still a solid brew!
