Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Very dark - essentially black - and nearly opaque. Big two-finger tan foamy head and visible carbonation on the low side. Really, a very nice looking black ale.
S: Not a huge aroma here overall. Some roasted malt bitterness with mild coffee notes, and some resinous hops.
T: Bitter chocolate malts, dark roasted malt dry bitterness. Resin and bitter citrus rind hops, and some bitter cacao flavors. Only hints of coffee-roasted malts. Finishes with bitterness and a lesser component of balancing malt sweetness.
M: Medium body, moderate carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is noticeable but not overdone.
O: This was easy to drink and pretty enjoyable. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it stand out particularly either. Worth a try if you see it.

Pours an effervescent ebony with 3+ fingers of mocha colored head. Great lacing & head retention
S: Carob & roastyness
T: Roastyness, a little dark fruit & charred grain, some pineyness up front. Carob & roastyness as this warms. Some dark chocolate & even a little mint, before pineyness & charred grain dominates as this warms. Finishes piney, a little grapefruitty, & with charred grain & with a little woody
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, alright balance
Drinks fairly easy, not completely to my liking, but not a bad take on the style
