On tap at the Blind Pig in Champaign, IL

A: Pours a dark brown, nearly black color with a bit of red around the edges. A two finger white head forms, and recedes in a second.
S: Piny, resiny hops up front. Bitter grapefruit. The bitterness intermingles with the obvious roasted malt. Coffee and chocolate mixed with grapefruit aromas. Blah.
T: Similar to the nose. Piny, resiny hops up front. Bitter grapefruit. Then the hops mingles with roasted malt. Sticky, resinous pine and grapefruit. Assertive coffee and chocolate flavors with hops is not good. Also some soy sauce flavors. A mess.
M/D: A full, resinous, and sticky body. Moderate carbonation that is sticky, oily, and soapy. Not easy to drink at all. High alcohol and the hops and malt mix is not enjoyable at all.

This is a mess, and typical, not only of the dreaded and stupid Black IPA, but the "Imperial Black IPA." This was not enjoyable for me at all...

Its a real shame. This was my first taste of anything from Evil Twin. I had not heard of the brewery, had not heard of the beer, so this was new adventure for me.
Honestly, I did not care that much for this beer. Now, its been almost 18 months since I've tasted this and my beer appeptite has changed so much

I will need to re-taste this to do it its honors
