Freshness Date: None

A: Black with deep brown highlights. The head is fluffy and tan, spreading in sheets of microbubbles on the glass.

S: The scent is surprisingly sweet sporting strong notes of caramel, cocoa, and brown sugar. There are also hints of espresso and earth.

T: Smooth and sweet with nice malt complexity. The sweetness is the cornerstone comprised of cocoa nibs, brown sugar, caramel and toffee. The is also some toasted grain which transitions to a mild bitterness that is predominately earthy with a touch of citrus zest, flowers and pine. The alcohol is well hidden.

M: Smooth and creamy with faint to moderate carbonation. The soft feels synergism with the sweet palate culminates to a chocholate milk like experience.

O: An enjoyable dark brew but in the end lacked the hop feel and complexity of a great black IPA.

A: Pours black with a one finger sand colored head. Nice lacing down the glass with every sip.

S: Interesting mix here. I get some minty/herbal hops along with some grapefruit, cocoa and roasted malt.

T: A little faint coming out of the gate. Eventually, I get some light roasted malt, cocoa, and toasted grain with a big push of grapefruit hop resin in the background. The resin lingers through the finish with just a touch of roasted malt. A touch unbalanced, but not a bad Black IPA at all.
