Notes/Commercial Description:
Adam Romanow is our third brewer apprentice. His release is an exploration into a newer beer style, the Black IPA. Black as night, bitter, with a full flavored Cascade hop profile and smooth finish.

Named after Nyx, the mythological Greek goddess of night, who stood at the beginning of creation. As a beginning, we agree Adam is on to something. As he moves on, we raise a toast and hope you enjoy his beer as much as we do.

Very classic black ale. Would prefer something softer and hoppier or maybe not as bitter as aftertaste is fairly sharp w a touch of alcohol bite. Not bad though and reasonable at $8 for a 22. Just not unique in any way.

A: black with a foamy head similar to Coca-Cola coloring ad a bit long lived. Nice lattice cling to glass

S: dank, but hoppy, slightly rye like

T: like a fine dark bittersweet chocolate, lingers without unpleasant aftertaste

M: smooth but slightly carbonated bringing out the bitters

O: makes me want to investigate more of this brewers offerings. Would definitely by again.

I picked this up today after reading some wonderful reviews about it. Needless to say, this beer DID NOT disappoint.

Appearance- Black, just black.

Smell- Dark chocolate with some dark fruits to go along with it (plums, red grapes). Slight coffee smell as well.

Taste- Divine. Hops, dark malts, and toffee at first then mellowing out to a rich dark chocolate/black coffee finish. Great mouthfeel, drank it cold, so it had a surprisingly smooth mouth to it. I was expecting it to be very thick but it was not.

Overall- Great beer. I am a fan already after only half a glass. It has the hops of beers that I enjoyed when I was younger with the color of a stout and a chocolate finish that just make me glow.
