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.

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.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.

A: Very dark brown almost lack with 2 finger head. Leaving very nice lacing.

S: Coffee, cocoa, and pine.

T: Roasty malts with some coffee and chocolate notes. Earthy undertones with pine and other hops. Nice balance.

M: Medium body and nicely carbonated. A bit dry in the finish.

O: Good Black IPA. On par with several of the others that I have tried...

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.

22 oz. bottle served in a tulip glass. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue, a decent sized foamy tan head, good lacing (poured fine, no abundance of foam). Aroma is caramel, a little bit of coffee, citrus, pine and slightly earthy hops. Flavor is slightly roasted, coffee, a hint of cocoa, pine and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium, astringent, and dry finish. Good beer, nice balance.

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.
