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.

On tap at Neighborhood in the Gaslamp Quarter. I figured I might as well tick this but after a Pliny it might have been a bad idea. Blakc color obviously, good head. Piney and malty aroma. Flavor was piney, hoppy and then roasty malts. I'm real picky about black IPA's and I feel like very few breweries can pull it off. Stone 11th and 15th anniversary IPA's are benchmarks in this style as far as I'm concerned. This was a decent beer but not something I would recommend nor seek out again.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
