What an intense, complex and slightly overwhelming beer. Hoppy and spicy. I ordered this drink on draught and it was served in a tall pint glass. I was surprised at the dark, almost black color, mistakenly thinking that I had ordered a regular IPA. Boy was I wrong. This is the first black ale that I have had and thus am unfamiliar with the style. I feel it is a taste I could get acclimated to. I must add that I was drinking this beer alongside very spicy pickles that perhaps affected my taste for the beer. I would like to drink again but without food just for comparison.

Ok but not crazy impressed by this one. Certainly drinkable but not on my mentionable list.

Leaves a little something to be desired by me.

Thick dark color, rich darkened fluffy head which lingers.
