Had on tap at Sticks and Stones a few days back.Poured into a standard pint glass a deep cola color with some brown highlights peaking through,a thinner tan colored head atop.Aromas were mainly piney hops and earthy tones,the roast was not as big in the nose as it was in the flavor profile.Dark roast coffee and earthy flavors melding into piney hops,the feel was lighter for a "bigger" beer,some alcohol sweetnes was present.Not bad but not an overly complex beer for the style,glad I tried it but there are many better out there in my opinion.

3.08/5  rDev -16.3%

On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location.
IBU = 75

Pours black with a fine creamy tan head that is very durable and leaves a complete coat of sticky lacing on th glass.

Aroma: herbal/citrus hops

Taste: strong hop flavor clashes with some dark roasted malts. High bitterness.

Feel: full body; smooth but slightly astringent.

O: Challenging Black IPA for hop-heads only.

4.13/5  rDev +12.2%

Appears an opaque black with a fluffy tan head that slowly fades into a gentle cap. Tons of tubular lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of cocoa, caramel, citrus, malted grain, and bitters.
Taste is of the aromas with an orange infused bitter chocolate bar.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, well balanced leaning towards a grapefruit bitterness in the finish.

Pours jet black with a tannish head. In the aroma, coffee, chocolate roast, and a small sweetness. In the taste, a nice pine hop with a mix of coffee and chocolate. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry hop and coffee roast in the aftertaste. More a hoppy porter, but nice noetheless.

Pours a very dark brown color and opaque. A root beer colored head develops and fades just as quickly. Roasted malt and grapefruit aromatics. Smooth, lightly creamy mouthfeel. Tart grapefruit and pi9ne are wrapped in a roasted malt blanket. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness. Less assaulting than the Sublimely Self-Righteous from Stone of which this beer reminds me.
