Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Blacker than coffee with a mocha head, great retention, foamy thick lacing.

Aroma: Perfect balance of charred roasted grains and earthy hops. A touch of piny wood.

Taste: Charred grains, roasted malts, faint chocolate and coffee notes ... lead into the finish of slightly bitter hops and earthy pine.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly dry.

Overall: Cannot explain how well balanced this is. Hoppy, yet enough roast and coffee/chocolate.

Poured into a tulip glass.

When Poured it has a milk chocolate looking head...light brown is...got a big 2 inch head, that depleted slowly.

When i smelled it i got grapefruit, and even a burst of peach. Just dank hop smell...but you can also smell a syrupy sweet undertone.

Taste is very hop forward upfront but as you swallow it is immediately mellowed out by the sweet malts of the beer. CRAZY balanced, liking this a lot.

It is slightly creamy, a touch on the heavier side and i would say its more of a sipper.

Overall, this is a super solid Black IPA. super balanced and drinkable. I would defiantly buy again.
