A- perfect looking beer. Deep brown almost black with ruby highlights when held up to the light. Two and a half fingers of creamy light brown head. Superb head retention with plenty of sticky lacing all the way down the glass.
S- Not the most aromatic beer but solid and layered none the less. hops and malt play off each other beautifully in the nose. Piney spicy woody hops combine with rye spice and light roasted malt tones. Some citrus and dark chocolate notes come out as well.
T- woody piney hops with a distinct rye spiciness on the front end. Roasted malt and big chocolate character blends in with notes of citrus peel from the hops. Aggressively bitter on the back end with a roasty mocha finish that lingers with leafy hops for an eternity!
MF- creamy slick mouthfeel with a medium body. Perfect carb for this kind of beer.
D- great drinkability
Overall an excellent black IPA
