750ml into a Bruery snifter. The brew appears black in color with a khaki head. Some stringy patchy lace sticks to the glass and a swirl revives a finger back to the surface.
This is very roasted and earthen with notes of tobacco, minerals, citrus and pine coming forward. I enjoy how the roast of the grain is seemingly the first thing noted and while the hops are a big player, they fall secondary to the roast of the grain.
The taste is earthy with tobacco, leather, roasted almost chocolate-like grain feel that blends into the aftertaste with almost a smokey appeal. The hop flavors are strong with notes of pine before getting more herbal and dank.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall quite decent but nothibg id want to buy multiples of. I enjoyed that the grain aspect of this was able to stand up to the assetiveness of the hops. Worth a try if you like black ipas.

4.24/5 rDev +11%
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.
