Bought this in Burlington VT on my trip to Maine.

A- Body is a dark brown nearly black. Not uniformly translucent and when light shines through hints of ruby can be seen. Pours with a 3-4 finger foamy creme brulee head. Head slowly fades to 1/3 finger and leaves plenty of lacing behind in the glass.

S- The nose has a lot of grapefruit to offer. A lot of bitter roasted malt brings up the background. There is a nice brightness to the grapefruit tones-but the coffee ground smell is very prominent and I am on the fence about how well they blend.

T- Light notes of white grapefruit upfront with a subtle roasted malt backbone. The finish is all bitter hop resin and roasted malt bitterness with a hint of pine. The resinous and roasted malt bitterness lingers on and on.

M- Carbonation is medium and not assaulting The body is relatively smooth and oily. This is very well done and where I taste the Hill influence .

O- Black ales can really be hit or miss as the typical IPA and porter or stout don't really blend well. I have had some great ones and some bad ones. This one is pretty much a miss but I really respect the bright citrus/grapefruit tones to this as well as the great mouthfeel. I guess its worth a try but I'm really not into it. The bitterness is too much.

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.
