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!

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).
