3.96/5  rDev +3.9%
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 (509 characters)

Not a huge fan of this beer....had higher expectations. It poured a opaque black with offwhite head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries faint pine and bitterness. The taste is somewhat smokey and weird....it is very strange and I am not a overly huge fan. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Nope....won't go buying this one again.....would try it on tap though....just to see if it is better. (433 characters)

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. (327 characters)
