Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some roasted malts. Taste is hoppy, bitter, some roasted malts, a touch of coffee. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

This is one of my favorite black ipa's. It's smooth and balanced. I could drink this with a steak, a slice of pizza, or with some cake.

Serving: Bottle
Appearance: Pitch black with aubergine highlights; opaque. Perfect two finger tan head comprised of some larger bubbles and some smaller. Fantastic to see any over carbonation issues cleared up nicely.
Smell: Nearly stout like with dark roasted coffee malt predominating and perhaps a wee bit of anise.
Earthy. Served at 45 degrees F this is a bit light weight in the olfactory department
Taste: Malty sweetness with a clear chocolate front and center. Acrid coffee towards the middle with a bit of licorice. Only towards the finish can I taste any discernable hop character with some grapefruit and strongly earthy slightly tobacco tinged hops to be followed by more rich dark malt. A bit more hops in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and thick but not as thick as a stout.
Overall: A stout drinker’s IPA. Frankly more stout than IPA but I enjoyed it immensely.
The 2014 version of this brew is fantastic.

The 2014 Tuxedo is a much improved iteration. The initial aroma of dark roast and coffee notes are amazing and in balance with the hop aroma. Hop bitterness is balanced with the dark malt but leaves no doubt this is a black IPA.

Smells like a mixture of coffee and pine. No citrus whatsoever.
Dark purple color with a 1.5 finger head that quickly went away.
Not a super complex black ipa.
Had a dry quality but not offputting.
Solid after dinner or before bed ipa.
Great example of a local black ipa.
