4.13/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Very dark, with reddish tints on the edges. The head is maybe a finger's width, off-white, and has long retention and a lot of lacing.

S: Toffee, alcoholic phenols, a spiciness, and some slight woody hops. Really not a ton of aroma coming off of this beer.

T: The taste is definitely a kick in the mouth. Sweet malts, toffee, and lots of spicy rye start this beer out. The rye melds nicely with the herbal, woody hops to take the beer through to the end. Despite all the sweet flavor, the beer is remarkably dry. The aftertaste is that f a pleasant burnt sugar.

M: Heavy body, almost chewy, but also a lot of carbonation to cut through the body. the beer is also slightly sticky in the throat.

O: Really a solid beer. It's a big beer, but I would expect nothing less from a black rye IPA. I am amazed at how well all the flavors are playing together.
