Bomber into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to whoever opened this one.

A: Black with brown highlights and a finger of dense, fine tan head. Good retention, great lace. Lovely.

S: Coffee and hops, with lots of pine and some raw herbalness. Very brash, very nice.

T: Purely hoppy up front, with pine being dominant. Some grapefruit as well, followed by a touch of coffee roastiness. The finish is long, bitter, and ashy. Good stuff.

M: Creamy medium body. Solid.

O: I really liked this one, despite not being a huge fan of the style. Well worth a shot.

Cheers!

Poured from a 22 oz bottle (can't interpret date ".../09/12 14:27") into a DFH globe.

Immediate hop whiff after popping the top is very appetizing. Pours a dark cola brown/red settling to a very dark brown with a sizzling one-finger head....love the energy of this head. Initial smell is citrus hops with a bit of pine and a good dose of rye malt. Taste is more of the same, with a sharp carbonation attacking the front of the tongue while the hops, a bit of coffee, and caramel sweetness caress and soothe the rest of the mouth. Some chocolatey goodness coupled with rye on the back end. Carbonation is nicely done on this one, with a medium body rounding out a really nice mouthfeel. Overall, very well done, I will be trying this again in the future very soon.

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.
