An Imperial CDA, but there's no category for Imperial/Double versions here on the site. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a nearly solid black, just a bit of translucence on the edges, and a bit over a quarter-inch of tan head that had very good retention and lacing.

Lots of big roasted notes in the front of the aroma, and a surprisingly low hop profile for a beer with 80 IBU's. Same deal on the tongue, much more like a Porter than an IPA, even though the whole CDA style is kind of a mutt.

The body is way thin for a Porter, thinner than any other CDA I can think of, and thin even for a "light"IPA. Drinkability was very good, I could easily have a couple of these, even though I'm not generally a fan of CDA's. Overall, a pretty nice brew. It doesn't really fit any niche, but it's certainly worth a shot if you see it.
