On tap at Haven Gastropub in Pasadena, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but it smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

On tap at Sublime Alehouse

A: black with a one finger mocha colored head. Good retention.

S: A little suspicious because none of the other reviews noted this, but mine smelled like fresh squeezed lime. Lots of citrusy hop notes as well with some darker hints of chocolate and earth underneath.

T: I really liked this one. Bright citrus hops, lime, some faint roasted malt, dark chocolate and earth. Definitely more reminiscent of a Black IPA with a lighter mouthfeel. Tasty!
