3.8/5 rDev -0.3%
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a half-pint chalice.
A: Opaque black color with two fingers of persistent light beige foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: Aggressively piney, with relatively mild milky chocolate and baking spices.
T: Begins dry, with volatile resinous hops aromatics and dark cakey malt. The first half is very green, while the second half is dark and bitter--but with a spicy edge.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slick on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: A very good black IPA; similar to some of Sierra Nevada's best small batch beers of the style. Hops qualities soar over the malt, but remain stolidly focused on coniferous qualities. Flavors are generally good, but with a monotonous tendency.

750 ml capped bottle. Bottled 8/7/13.
Served chilled into a goblet.
Batch 1000 is a very dark brown ale with thick bone white head. It has great retention, settling very slowly, and leaving some nice lacing behind.
Aroma is a very enjoyable combination of citrusy hops and a sweet vanilla.
Flavor is hoppy but balanced with a sweet roasty malt body. It has great bitterness from the abundant hopping but also from the dark malts. The rye provides a pleasant spice and pumpernickel bread character.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Balanced and enjoyable.
Overall a very enjoyable beer. Cheers to the home brewers in Denver who one this prestigious competition. They deserved it.
