4.61/5 rDev +7.7%
A: It has a black body that light has some ability to pass through. There is a one finger mocha colored head.
S: There is a simultaneous bitter hop bite with a sweet red wine aroma that come off throughout the nose of this beer. There is hint of roasted chocolate in the background. Very unique.
T: Very complex. It starts with a deep roasty chocolate and then transitions into a very oaky red wine flavor. The hops creep up at the end so it finishes with the tannins from the red wine and the bitter pine bite of hops. Well done.
M: Great body but it could be a little heavier. The carbonation is a little low.
O: Great Black IPA. One of the best I've had to date.

Reviewed from notes. Drank this one summer of 2012 when it was fresh.
Pitch black viscous body topped by a lasting tan head. Pine, resin, roasted malt on the nose. A little tar and ash, too. Palate is full, somewhat viscous, big resinous hop flavors with a touch of citrus, though it leans greatly toward pine. Dark cocoa and vinous barrel notes. More barrel aged stout than DIPA to me, but a good beer nonetheless.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.
Pours a dark mahogany with just a small amount of head. The head disappears rather quickly. I'm getting a sweet wine note in the nose along with some roast and maybe a little oak. The sweetness has a dark fruit component to it as well. The taste is quite sweet with the dark fruit and wine notes standing out. There is an oaky quality to this beer as well. The beer is a bit flat with a very dry finish. Overall I'd say this is a very complex beer and I can't think of anything else I've had that I could compare it to.
