4.35/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

My sample was from a bottle that I suspect to be several months old, maybe even a year old. the hops expected seem to have faded considerably. Consider this a review of a room-temperature (thanks to the Oklahoma liquor store laws) aged sample. Pours out to a black color and rich lasting tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel., chocolate, and vanilla with some muted citrus and piney hops. Flavor is a rich, complex blend of hop bitterness and interesting malt flavors including caramel, chocolate, mocha, spice, orange and vanilla mixed with faded cascade type hops. Mouthfeel is medium and CO2 is just right. Overall this beer, with AGE, tastes fantastic. It may have lost the hop edge of a "black IPA" but it retains the pleasant bitterness and malt complexity that went into making this beer more than just a dark" hops and alcohol show". If only most porters tasted this complex and interesting! Well done! IF YOU HAVE THIS BEER I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO CELLAR A BOTTLE OR TWO TO TRY A YEAR OR SO LATER. This beer changes but in a good way!

Nomally not a big black IPA fan But this is solid with nice hop resin sweetness in the nose. Blackish color with sticky dirty head. Love the syrupy hop feel and taste. Eyes closed you wouldn't know this was a black IPA. Flavors come together nicely leaving this very drinkable
