Thanks to hopdog for sharing this beer received from grassrootsVT, who was partially responsible for the beer.
Appears a hazy dark mahogany with a small tan head that never really fades away. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of cocoa, caramel, raisins, grapes, toasted nuts, bitter chocolate, and cream.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with mildly tart cherries, and gooseberries found in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, creamy, biter, and lip smacking.

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.

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.

Pours a sexy brownish-black with a huge brown head into my glass. Black Nitro...hell yeah!

Lots of different hop notes in the nose, especially of citrus and pine/cut grass. The malt stays in the background for this example.

Surprisingly balanced upfront with the mix of various hops. Beats out some other examples I've had recently.

You will love the mouthfeel. The hops drop off of your mouth, warming the throat. The finish? Think of a hazelnut spread on toasted bread. Very "nutty".

Highly recommended for this style.

Well this label definately looks appealing and when the brew is poured it looks as good as the label looks it is dark black cola hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head that slowly recedes to a layer of smoggy froth across the top with an outer rim of lacing,it smells as good as it looks to with aromas of strong piney hops,mandarin,grapefruit and a tinge of liquorice,it has a nice medium bodied mouthfeel which is lively carbonated and has tastes of piney hops first up followed by some citrus zest,a tinge of toffee,black liquorice and finishes with a passionfruit,piney hop bitterness and to be quite honest i could easily drink more than one of these and will buy again without doubt.
