3.55/5 rDev -13%
Clear black colored beer with a minimal tan colored head.
Scents of Pine and Burnt Coffee. Patent malt is strong. High Hopping plus Patent malt equals carrot. Strong aroma of carrot and parsley.
Starts out sweet and savory. Burnt sugar and coffee tastes. Flavors of caramel and carrot. This is decidedly on the sweet side.
Mouthfeel is thick.
Overall an OK beer on the sweet and heavy side for the style.

Midnight Hoppyness....I was surprised when I poured this from a bomber into a pint glass, and it came out black....hence the name. Duh.
Good looking beer. Dark black with a large muddy head.
Smells of sweet chocolate, with a crispness that hints of hops. That would be the only clue so far that this isn't a stout.
Tastes pretty strongly of alcohol, starts somewhat sweet, and finishes bitter. Kind of rough.
Pretty strongly carbonated..
Overall, this tastes a little unfinished. Like it should be aged, or tweaked a bit in the brewing process. A bit rough for me.

Pitche black with a big brown head. Roasty and piney on the nose. Really bold flavors that somewhat conflict. Dank, piney, and bitter, then roasty and bitter. It just ends up being a bit bitter for me overall. Not bad, but not easy to drink. The mouthfeel is as it should be.

They call this an "Imperial Black Rye IPA." It seems to be a new twist on the "Cascadian" theme. This stuff is firewater with a hoppy burn that never goes out. Opaque dark brown in the really big duvel snifter with an adequate beige head.
Not overly carbonated on the tongue, which is a good thing because it's extremely acidic in addition to the alcoholic prickle. Massive aroma of some night-blooming flower growing in the barnyard. The flavor is so big you have to come at it from different sides. Burnt malt, burnt house, burnt lips. Serious, massive bitterness with some tar and wintergreen notes. Some barbecued peach and mango.
I wouldn't call this drinkable, being so rough and ridiculously hopped, but the hop fanatic will find it a worthy challenge. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in North Park in San Diego.
