3.96/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: a nice brown tending towards black. almost opaque but some clarity. small tan head that doesn't stick around at all

Smell: lighter roasted malts and citra

Taste: opens up and stays consistently roasted malts, not super strong but forever present. citra plays along nicely in the background

Mouthfeel: some bitterness and pretty light

Overall: I usually can't drink a whole black hoppy beer but this one was actually pleasant, affirms my choice to get my hands on every new odd side beer i can

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

pours cola with frothy head, sticky lacing, light retention

faint chocolate and roasted malt. nose was weak

citrus hop and sweet dark chocolate up front. some roasted malt and sweet citrus fruit emerge. some bitterness and stickiness through the finish

light body, mild carbonation

overall good for a lower ABV black citra.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

A - It is very dark with some ruby highlights. I got a tiny amount of tan head.

S - At first I just noticed a citrus aroma with a little roasted malt. As it warmed I got a coffee aroma.

T - As with the smell, I got a bunch of citrus at first with a little roasted malt. Once it warmed the coffee taste became apparent.

M - Medium

O - I didn't care for it until it warmed up and released some of the coffee aroma and taste. It is a good beer.
