Alex, again... dark brown with a creamy light beige head, good retention... light aroma but nice, grassy coffee, a touch too sweet... the taste is a bit too green for me but one of the best beers of the night, I came back several times although its not very balanced

3.71/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This bipa pours a very near black color with a generous tan head that lasts well into the pour and leaves very substantial lacing. The aroma was far maltier than I had expected for an imperial black ipa. The same can be said for the flavor; although that was more complex with notes of vanilla and coffee present. Overall, this one seemed closer to porter or even stout than black ipa. Would have enjoyed a hoppier presence like its little brother Hoppy Feet.

3.83/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into DFH IPA glass.

A: Black with a 2 finger, foamy khaki head. Settles fairly slowly, leaving a smattering of bubbles and a partial foam blanket on the surface. Thick, persistent lacing.

S: Roasted nut shells, and a little black licorice. Just a bit of grapefruit peaks out from behind the roasty characteristics, and is accentuated with a bit of butterscotch.

T: Roasted pecan shells, bitter floral hops, and a fair amount of black licorice.

M: Heavy mouthfeel. Bitter and roasty. A little boozy. Bitterness lingers on the palate throughout.

D: Sipping experience... the character will dictate as much.

Atmosphere is really strong. Dark, with a substantial head, and plenty of persistent lacing. Nose is a well balanced combination of char roast, bitter citrus, and a touch of sweetness. Very roasty, with biting bitterness, and a nice hop. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Outlived my expectations.
