chocolate punch with tropical notes and pine. IPA meets Stout. A very big coffee aroma, but not much in the taste initially. It lingers after. A slight grape flavor profile.

Another good brew from this growing brewery. A nice new beer to the rotation.

4.31/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black, decent foam, great lacing.

Smell: Pine, with a faint hint of pine in the background.

Taste: Pine, chocolate, coffee, and pine, with touches of pine.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a pine hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. Enough roasted malts to give it a hint of balance, but pine is definitely the star of this show. Lots of fresh flavor in this one.

On tap at Fig

Dark brown (light black?) with great head
Huge pine aroma with some grapefruit and toasted malt
Taste is more toasted malt and less pine but still some nice hop oil and classic west coast IPA flavors
Kind of light-medium body
Really good beer...maybe the best black IPA in CA

Pours black with a two finger mocha white head. The nose is primarily pine with a little citrus. There is a nice roastiness from the malt and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is all pine and roast. It's like biting a burnt pine cone. I feel like this bottle might be a little old because i remember a bit bigger of a hop presence. Still quite good.
