poured into snifter. bottled 06.11.13.
A: pours a very dark brown with a dark brown frothy head. retention is terrific. minor lacing.
S: citrus starts the nose off with a bevy of dark malt undertones. meaty and rich. however, every revisit brings back even more American hop presence. pine. very promising.
T: the acridness of the roast is strong, but not overbearing. a hop bitterness is there too. finish has a ton of dark chocolate, roast, and a good bit of espresso. a minor astringency in the finish, but it is almost expected with the amount of roast here.
M: a slightly creamy mouthfeel on a pretty ful and rich body.
D: a pretty solid black IPA from Maine. great hop nose while still remaining to show a solid malt presence, especially with the roast. very enjoyable. a little surprised not as many people agree with me.

From 07/23/14 notes. On tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. 14 oz pour in a tulip.
a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one inch of dark brown head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice.
s - Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, pint hops, and very light citrus. very good, though not as balanced or hoppy as I was expecting. Roasted notes dominate the nose.
t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, pine hops, citrus hops, floral notes, grapefruit, cocoa, and mocha notes. More balanced than the nose and more hops, very good and better.
m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitterness, pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall a good Black IPA...not one of the best I've had, and not MBC's best, but quite good. Taste is good and balanced, worth checking out.

Poured from the 3 week old bottle into the MBC ale hybrid weizen/pilsner blass.
A: Dark creamy ale, seems nitro charged. Opaque with light brown head that starts pretty big and collapses into a 4mm disk. Can be excited into froth at any time. minimal lacing and kinda brown at the edges. Tasty lookin'!
S: Neo hops, like Mosaic or Azzaca, mild. Malt shines through with strong toffee note.
T: Well blended neo-hop and dark chocolate malted milk ball.
M: Very delicate on the tongue, with a slightly acidic, almost lactic side of tongue with malty swallow, slightly thin on uptake. After swallow, it kinda wells up into a creamy, bitter note then kinda hangs around with a very slight hint of chalkiness.
O: Great effort again from MBC. Outright solid.
