thick beutiful head pour inside two snifters.
super dark amber with good clarity only shown by using a really bright LED flashlight.
also revealed excellent carbonation.
nose is piney hop with some malty undertone.
taste is chocolate, molasses, hop and general goodness.
I really like this beer and highly suggest it. would love ot have one fresher but this is still amazing.

Dark dark brown with a thinner than head and good lacing.
Smell some hop with some barley. Reminds me of Burton baton
Lots of hop bitterness upfront with some barley taste and malt taste mid and a bitter finish
Mouthfeel is good but seemed kind of sticky to me

Never been a huge fan of black IPAs. However, the rye definitely smooths out the astringency of the dark malt in wookey and makes this a *gasp* refreshing *gasp* beer. Would even pop one on a hot summer day. Two thumbs upwards.
- had on tap at Big Sur Taphouse in Big Sur, CA
