Nice sweet coffee smell to it. Lots of interesting, unexpected flavors. Kind of fruit... maybe? Definitely some light coffee taste, possibly some tea flavors in there. A little ways through I got some sort of menthol/medicinal stuff. I don't know if this really should be called a black IPA, but how can something be a black pale ale anyway. Tasty and interesting.

Serving type: cask

Near black in color where no light passes even on the edge of the glass. Spotty lace.

Burnt toast and some ash (??, like a fireplace after a fire) to the nose.

Strong darker malt flavors: chocolate and some black patent. Good balance to the hop. The body is solid. Interestingly, there are burnt flavors in the aftertaste. A good dose of yeast flavors. Excellent complexity.

Serving type: on-tap
