Many thanks to SammyJaxxxx for this bottle. This is one of my favorite styles, and I have been wanting to try this for some time, so it was a great and unexpected extra.

Right off the bat, this is a beautiful beer. It's dark as night, and effortlessly produces a rich head that sticks around for a bit. Aromas are spot on for a CDA -- tropical fruit, pine, and tons of roast. It tastes every bit as great as it smells, and the bomber is gone before I know it. Another quality beer from FW.

The only black IPA/black ale I've enjoyed. I'd buy this again.

Pours pitch black and creates a fleeting soapy head.

The nose has a lot of resiny hops...not as floral/citrusy as a "normal" IPA... but I like it.

There is a lot of hop bitterness which dominates the taste with the hint of mint to give it some lightness. Enjoyable construct. This has some heft to the mouthfeel, which makes it a sipping kind of ale.

If all black IPAs had these fundamentals, I'd enjoy the style more often.
