Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate, piney hops and some floral undertones.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some definite roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate, a resiny pine bitterness and faint floral hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle of Capt’n Krunkles Black IPA poured black and opaque with a good size, durable tan head that left splotchy lacing.

Aroma: pronounced hops with faint malts. Nonetheless, appealing.

Flavor: more balanced. Unlike many black IPA;s, IMO, this one successfully integrates the substantial hop load with a substantial amount of medium and dark malts. Its success is due in large part, I suspect, to not going overboard with the ingredients. Terrapin also has done a fine job of matching the malts to the hops.
