A casualty of the back of the unlit beer fridge ...

Dark black pour with just a hint of red tint. 1 finger of medium cream head. Light retention and faint fingers of lace.

Nose is very nice. Vanilla cream, dark chocolate, roast malt, and a hint of coffee all blend together.

Vanilla bean, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, just a hint of dried fruit, and a shot of grapefruit hops round out the taste. Complex and well done.

Feel matches the flavor profile. Smooth and creamy, almost stout-like.

And I found one more in the back of the fridge ...

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

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled on date is kind of scratched, looks like it says 12/12/11.

A- Pours very cola-like with only about a half-finger's worth of head that quickly fades. Though the beer seems black as night some light appears to come in along the top sides of the glass.

S- Smells more of roasty malts than anything. I am struck by the fact that this is labeled on the bottle as a black DIPA yet I get no hop notes in the aroma whatsoever.

T- Up front I get some roasted malts, followed by some slight citrusy hop notes. The roastiness really controls most of the taste in my opinion.

M- Light to medium bodied, lightly carbonated, an easy drinker. Really no alcohol to make note of. Drinks nice but would like some more hop kick.

Like said above, overall this beer doesn't have enough of a hop kick for being called a DIPA on the bottle. Otherwise a decent beer. I'm sure the 7 months on it didn't help much either, probably would have drank better fresh.

3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is close to being jet black in color—traces of dark red are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with just a ring of large bubbles on the surface around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of dark roasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of licorice and roasted malts along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slick on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation. As the beer begins to warm up, it starts to feel silky smooth.
O: The alcohol is well hidden from this taste, so this beer is quite drinkable if you can handle the licorice flavors. It also doesn’t seem to be as bitter compared to other beers in the style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sample: 1 bottle 2010

A: Pitch black, pours nicer lacing (hard pour), light internal carbonation, not translucent

S: Complex nose, cocoa, vanilla, and espresso, muddled with citrus and some sweetness, quite fragrant

T: Much similar to the nose, begins sweet with the cocoa/vanilla, transitions into heavy espresso, finishing with a citrus bitterness, flavorful and complex

M: Smooth and light in the mouth, well balanced, only a bit drying on the palate, light espresso aftertaste

O: A complex, fragrant, and flavorful black ale, age doesn't seem to have lessened its flavor, if anything it seems improved
