4/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a brown-edged black coloring with a tall, dense, foamy, clingy, off-white head that coats the glass as you drink. Aromas of dank and resinous hops forward, roasted notes in the backbone, hints of coffee, and citrus highlights throughout. Very balanced for such an aromatic nose. Flavors are roasted and bitter forward, with a blast of cut grass, pine resin, and tart grapefruit notes. Very balanced, with hints of char and roast throughout. The body is full and robust, but fairly light, too, keeping the drinkability up. Roasted and bitter aftertaste, with lingering citrus notes in there as well. Solid, balanced brew. The finish is smooth and slick, with a roasted and slightly bitter linger. The slightly elevated ABV is completely masked with the smooth body and full palate. Great brew!

4.43/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 220z bottle into a Sierra Nevada tulip glass. Almost completely black with a hint of brown; no haze. Two inch thick tan head that that dissipated quickly. Moderate lacing down the glass
Sweet dark chocolate nose with a little black licorice
Malty sweetness up front, finishing with a substantial amount of bitterness at the end. Very well balanced. Tasting the dark chocolate and black licorice I got on the nose, with a hint of coffee and caramel.
Medium carbonation that finishes into a creamy mouthfeel. Again, very well balanced

I really enjoyed this beer! An excellent representation of an 'American Black Ale', in my opinion. Could also be classified as a 'Black IPA', I believe, (not too sure of the difference anyway).
