500ml bottle (bottled 6/11/13) poured into a Portsmouth 20th Anniversary stemmed glass.
A - Pours super dark brown that approaches black in color. Two fingers of fluffy head caps the dark liquid with a deep mocha that rises up and above the rim of the glass while still retaining its shape.
S - Grassy and citrusy hops take the lead on the nose immediately noticeable on the pour into the glass. Mild roasty aroma just perceptible behind the hops. Hops smell very fresh...looking forward to the first sip.
T - Quite roasty in flavor, burnt toast like malt base. Acrid, a bit smoky, charred, a bit astringent, mild coffee bitterness. Hops are layered on top rather thickly and manage to cut thru the burnt base quite well. A bit sweet tasting citrus and grass hop flavors - very bright flavors. Some oranges, lemons, grapefruit.
M - Lighter body, low-medium carbonation with a good bubbly tingle to it. Burnt flavor hits up front and lingers far into the finish. Hops are light and bright on top of the char and bring a nice balance to the beer pushing it more towards a refreshing quaffer of a beer.
O - I'm not a huge fan of the Black Ale style and had some reservations buying this, but glad I did. One of the best black ales I've had. Hops have really good fresh citrus notes that lighten the character overall for this beer. Going down pretty easily with dinner.

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.
