S: Mix of coffee and citrus hops, great nose. Some pine and it warms.

L: Very dark brown, bordering on black. Off-white creamy head that dissipates. Solid lacing.

T: Bold citrus hoppiness with a slight coffee roasty body. Medium high bitterness leading to a good balance of coffee-ness and roastiness. Bold malt but not too sweet throughout. Finishes hoppy and slightly roasty, dry.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation.

Really solid black IPA, quite hoppy with some roast. Really enjoyed this beer.

Deep deep brown in color with auburn highlights. Thin light tan head. Smells wonderful. Piney resinous hops. Roasted malt, touches of anise.

Great Black IPA. Piney and citric hops on the tip of the tongue roll into subdued yet balancing roasted chocolate and coffee malt. Touches of caramel on the very back end of the tongue. Spicy rye compliments the hop profile on the back end of the tongue but isn't overpowering. the rye plays a big part in clearing the palate the palate providing a very rare moment in the world of rye beer, amazing balance. While the rye is critical to the spicy taste of the beer, it still allows other flavors to come through. Very amazing.

big full mouth feel.

I normally dont like rye beer but this one uses other flavors to compliment the spicy notes of the rye rather than just let the rye be the only star of the show.
