22oz bomber. Pours a black/dark brown with a thin tan frothy head. Aroma is of citrus and piney hops. Maybe a hint of chocolate but the hop aroma dominates, and I'm not complaining. Taste is more of the mix of the pine and citrus hop flavors but a bit more chocolate this time. Some roasted malt and burnt coffee flavors. Bitter orange peel aftertaste. Heavy mouthfeel. This beer has less drinkability than most others I've had of this style but is still damn good. The 10%ABV is hidden well. Overall this is a very fine Black IPA and I will absolutely look for it again.

I gotta say, I like this beer WAY more than I thought I might. The big 10% ABV is masked beautifully and the hops come through very well without leaving too much bitterness. Overall this is such a smooth BDIPA. Only problem with this beer is that the brewing period is too short.

22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere in the Middlebury/Burlington area.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" dark tan head over the barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head collapses slowly, settling at a strong 1/2" and holding, with leggy lasting lace. Aroma is miminal.
Taste has a peek of sweet to start, an undercurrent of slightly acrid bitterness from stem to stern, a shot of dark fruit in the middle, and a cream yet more bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. Never would have guessed this brew is 10%abv.
