On-Tap at the brewery.

A: Served a mahogany color with a good head that fades to nice lacing.

S: Mild aroma of roasted malt, some caramel, pine and fresh grain.

T: taste starts with a mild touch of citrus, roasted malt, a bit of caramel sweetness and a nice bitterness and a dry finish.

F: A good medium body, smooth and fairly creamy. Very well balanced. No hint of the 6.8% ABV. Similar to thier IPA with a bit more character.

O: Good drinker, goes down easy. Not hard to follow with another.

I'm a big fan of the black IPA style so I was anxious to try this one and a bit disappointed when I did. The color was off to me because it really wasn't all that dark, certainly not black. Basically a cloudy, somewhat unattractive dark brown hue. Head was decent, fell off pretty quickly, lacing left behind was adequate. Aroma and taste were pretty close to that of the brewery's standard IPA with perhaps a slightly increased malt character; the roastiness I like so much, in combination with a big hoppy bitterness, in this style was very much lacking. This was a basically a brown IPA with an increased caramel malt flavor and a fairly uninteresting hop profile. Drank very easy with alcohol well hidden, medium carbonation and a fairly short and clean finish.
