Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: UTCengOwl on 03-12-2011

An entirely new creation from organic 2-row, organic Crystal 60 and Carafa III, a huskless black malt that gives this beer it’s black color with notes of coffee and chicory without any tannic bitterness. The hop additions are many and generous, featuring Apollo, Horizon, and Nugget, clocking the beer in at 70 IBU. Over 11 pounds per batch of Nugget hops are added directly to the fermenter yielding a resiny herbal and spicy aroma. A hybrid style for dark beer fans who love hops.

On tap at Queen Vic in Houston.

A: Pours a dark black color, almost opaque. A two finger tan head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace.
S: Resiny hops up front. Soapy and oily. Herbal, grassy, and citrus aromas come out next. Dark fruits and a light sweet malt aroma lingers.
T: Follows the nose. Resiny, soapy, and oily. Citrus and grassy hops are dominate. After the hops fade this is really sweet. Finishes with a large grapefruit bitterness.
M/D: This has a medium to full body. Good carbonation. Though this is overly thick, syrupy, and oily. Not hard to drink a pint of, but a one and done for me.

For me, this is pretty typical of this "style." If this is your thing, than this is a good one. Though I don't really get it. A dark beer that is overly hoppy. Nothing special and a little over the top.

Had on tap at Flying Saucer, Ft.Worth. Pub shaker

A - Pours a nice dark brown to black. Very nice head retention, tan brown, small bubbles. Ringed lacing the whole way

S - More of a hoppy nose, pine, grass and lemon. Minor pepper. Roast was not as predominant as you would expect.

T - Decent balance between the nutty roast and the herbal hops. There wasn't too much depth of flavour in this beer, more of a roasty Pale Ale.

M - Medium to thinning. ABV was hidden very well.

O - A decent product for a black IPA, I think they could have gone a little bolder and really hopped it up, however, it was easy enough to drink.
