Pours a dark brown/black. Smells of sweet citrus and malts. Dominant roasted malt flavor with strong coffee notes followed by citrus and spicy hops with a medium body. Spicy hop resin and coffee lingers in the aftertaste.

On-tap at Shannon Rose, Woodbridge, NJ:

Pours black with a tan lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, pine, coffee.

The taste is of chocolate, pine/herbal/perfume notes with coffee roast in the finish.

It has a smooth, full body.

An excellent Black Ale. Plenty hoppy, plenty roasty, and doesn't clash.

A very good beer. A bit malt heavy in my opinion for an IPA in general, but saved by a nice hoppy finish. There are better black IPAs, but I would revisit this one.
