22oz bottle purchased at the Lawson's Farmer's Market bottle release last week. Poured into Lawson's snifter.

A- Pours a dark brown black that appears a mostly opaque black in the glass with some transparency around the edges. About a half finger of off-white head with a slight brownish hue appears after pouring the subsides at a moderate rate to leave a flat top and some spotty lacing. Nice consistent carbonation.

S- Greeny hops, toasted malts, some light chocolate. Not your most aromatic beer, but a nice balance.

T- Greeny slightly earthy hops, some light grapefruit citrus, a bit of nicely balanced chocolate and toasted malts on the finish followed by some more hops. Nice balance, the more I drank this the more I liked it.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation, very easy drinking.

O- This definitely isn't the best black ale or the best Lawson's offering I've had, but it was still very good. It was very well balanced and highly drinkable. I found myself liking it more and more while I drank it and even consumed an entire 22oz bomber without a problem. I'd gladly buy another bottle of this if given a chance, but wouldn't go out of my way seeking it out.

This black IPA was so very enjoyable.
Pouring into a snifter, thick and black.
Smell was hoppy, nice roasted malt, coffee, chocolate notes.
Taste was intense and delicious almost a touch of eucalyptus. Strong, hoppy, caramel, coffee, roasted malt flavor.
Overall this beer is damn impressive, full of flavor and a fantastic representation of a black IPA.

Vermont tap takeover at Hop & Vine in Portland, OR

A: Dark brown, cola colored with a tan head

S: Roasty aromas with mild herbal notes

T: Heavy roast flavor bordering on burnt

M: High carbonation, medium body

O: This is not my preferred point on the Black IPA spectrum. I'd like more hops and less roast.

Serving type: on-tap
