Roast malt, booze, dark chocolate, floral hops, and dark fruit accompany muted citrus in a complex aroma. Flavor reveals dark fruit character of plums and sweet cherries, lots of alcohol, and floral esters, which is juxtaposed by a bitter roasty, hoppy, resiny finish. The booze and bitterness dominate, but the underlying fruit character is wonderful. May age well. Wish hop flavoring were more pronounced. Bitterness overwhelms, as it warms.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/16/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, licorice, floral, grass, pine, light char/smoke, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and citrus/pine hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, licorice, floral, grass, pine, light char/smoke, and floral/roasted earthiness. Good amount of pine and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, licorice, pine, light char/smoke, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of big dark/roasted malt and citrus/pine hop flavors; with a great roasted malt and hop bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, moderately sticky, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Black and tan style. All around great balance and complexity of big dark/roasted malt and citrus/pine hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. Definitely felt like an imperial black IPA with the big hoppiness. Would be interested in aging this one to see what happens. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle from Maltitude. Pours dark black with frothy tan head. Aroma of dark malt, hops. Taste of strong bitter hops, roasted malts, and a hint of floral. Bitter hops on the back end. Very good black IPA

Pours a black body with two finger tan head that sticks around a long time.
Aroma resembles roasted malts along with touches of sweetness and some oily hops as well.
Beer is smooth and sweet as the stout part sticks out more than I thought with some nice chocolate notes.
Balance is there from some roasted malts and the hops work well with the stout as I get dry, slightly bitter citric hop profile.
This beer could've gone haywire but they balanced/mixed it well and both styles of beer come through.
