Notes/Commercial Description:
Whether you are celebrating lost cities under the sea or shooting for low Earth orbit, take Atlantis along for the ride. We use a special blend of dark malts and add Galaxy, Cascade, and Calypso hops to create this smooth and hoppy black ale with just a whisper of cherry-wood smoke. We think Poseidon would approve.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass. Deep brown/black pour with a fluffy tan head. Suds stick to the sides of the glass pretty well and the head persists throughout.

Aroma has a strong piney, citrusy hop presence with a big roasted malt backbone. Aroma keeps jumping back and forth between the two scents. Getting some slightly acidic coffee notes in there too. Flavor is what I expected based on the nose: roasty & slightly smokey, juicy hops, and some bitter coffee grounds in the finish. Well carbonated, creamy mouthfeel.

Only thing really holding me back from scoring this one higher is the slightly acidic, almost sour coffee character that these darker beers can have. Still really enjoyed this beer.

3.95/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Large beige head that settles slowly to a lasting dome. Plenty of spotty and chunky lace. The color is near black where light shines along the edge.

The nose is lightly sweet with chocolate-like aromas. There's a notable, but subtle hop presence. Some yeast. Overall, quite a complex smell and appealing.

Spicy hop and black patent malt flavors up front. The flavor doesn't change much from initial sip to aftertaste. It leans toward the bitter. Long aftertaste. Below average body with a lower level of carbonation.
