4.25/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours dark, but not opaque. Nice lacing. Nose was very strong fruits at first, but as usual, calms down fairly soon. Flavor brings mild fruit with some hop spice. The sweet edge that I find a lot of black ales have is also here. Nothing obnoxious, but it is clearly defined. I would hope that at this point in the game Lagunitas knows how to deliver I this style. And they have with this one.

Serving type: on-tap

4.05/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a ruby tinged mahogany with 3+ fingers of rocky tan head. Great lacing & head retention

S: Roasty, not much else, some pineyness once warm

T: Roasty, a bit chocolate, pineyness, some charred notes up front. Some carob, charred grain, & a little more pineyness as this warms. Finishes roasty with carob sweetness, plus just a little bit charred bitterness & just a bit of grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation & nice balance

A very nice take on this style, as expected from these guys. Wish the nose was better, but this drinks so easy for the ABV

4.14/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served in a wellington glass.

Appearance: Dark browninsh black, thin bodied with heavy bubbles on the body. Off-white head with a slight tan tint to it. Head with initial pour was maybe 1/3" off the body.

Smell:Floral scent that is plain and simple, potent and good.

Taste: I will tell you this it comes off a little sour and lightly bitter. Feels like a dose of grapefruit with notes of lemon extract. Has a floral feel to it, not bad at all.

Mouth: It improves with time, i was paring it with pretzels and at first the sour after-taste was going in and out. Then as it warmed up, super sticky. Yes I said. Medium to full bodied, pretty damn good.

Overall: If you are looking for a black double IPA feels, for about five bucks it is very hard to recommend something better. Enjoy it and appreciate...Salud!
