Pitch black with a three finger high, beige, head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

Nose: Roasted malt, milk, sweet licorice, dark chocolate, citrus hops, very hoppy and fruity!

Taste: Grapefruit, coffee, roasted malt as in the nose, pine, bitter lemon peel and more malt.

Mouth: Medium body. A little thin but then black IPA tends to be that way.

Overall: A really good black IPA but not all the way up with the stars!

Reviewed from notes. Shared by Roy - thanks. Collaboration with Grassroots.

A: Pours and dark brown with reddish edges under a half-inch thick off-white head which yields spotty lace.

N: Citrusy hops and dark malts.

T: Roasty, hoppy and malty. Fairly bland.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Semi-dry and bitter roasty finish.

O: A Shawn influenced black ale. Not so much.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Nearly black. Nice khaki head. Thick collar. Leggy on the swirl.

Smell - Bright grapefruit. Roasted malt. Coffee and caramel.

Taste - Lots of grapefruit, again. Roasted malt immediately. Gets very bitter. Coffee and burnt malt bitterness. Grassy hop flavor comes back and almost overpowers the roasted malt, but not quite.

Mouthfeel - Very burnt and bitter. Medium carbonation.

Overall - If you can get past the intense roast, it's really good. But it is really burnt.

Served from a 16oz bottle into a Woodcock Brothers Imperial Pint. Quick Review.

Appearnce- Pitch Black. Big mocha head. lots of lacing.

Smell- Coffee, chocolate, pine, alcohol. Stouty.

Taste- Citrus hops, pine, coffee, chocolate, licorice. No booze.

Mouthfeel- Medium, lingering bitterness, no heat.

Overall- Very nicely done black IPA. Not a hoppy stout, but an actually black IPA.
