Poured into a Stone Brewery flute glass. Pours a very dark brown with mahogany tint, half finger light brown head with good retention and light lacing. Rich aroma of chocolate, coffee and dark toasted malt. Flavor of toasted malt, charred coffee, mild dark chocolate, grassy hops. Long lingering dark malt and grassy hop finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A nice hoppy CDA with good char notes of coffee and malt. Malt body is slightly light to support the coffee and hop bitterness, making the finish a bit dry and less balanced, but still an enjoyable black ale that hits all the right notes.

A: Very dark brown in color. Great two-finger head.

S: Hints of coffee, hops, chocolate, sweetness, and malts are present.

T: Bitter hops and bitter coffee in nature...with chocolate and slight brown sugar tastes.

M: A malty and hoppy feel with coffee added.

O: A great BIPA. Very bitter and hoppy with nice coffee tones. Bitter yet smooth.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Black with tan tint, minimal 1/4 inch head, some nice lacing.

Smell - Much like a stout, roasted malts, smoke, brown sugars, licrose mixed in with some hops. A little molassess and honey also is present.

Taste - First sip is a mix of roasted malts, coffee and piney hops. There is some brown sugar added in along with honey and molasses that balances out the bitterness. Chocolate and cococa add a dark, bold flavor that works really well with the malts.

Mouthfeel - The tongue really gets the smokey malts, along with some hops. Palate is coated with malts, bitter hops and a nice mix of brown sugar, coffee and chocolate. Aftetaste is malty, sweet and bitter.

Overall - A nice beer, really is a mix of stout and ipa with excellent amount of added sweetness to really make it a enjoyable brew. The coffee aspect mixed with the hops, might be a little too bitter for some, but other then that a soild beer.
