Fresh bottle from trade.

Brown pour with tan head. Aroma is earthy - grass, dirt. Taste is hoppy - bitter, bright notes of pine with some malt backbone (although not as pronounced as I would like).

Not my favorite but a decent offering from Greenbush.

Greenbush out of Sawyer, MI is somewhat of a relatively new brewery to Chicagoans. Believe they have been distributed here just this past year. I have seen them on tap occansionally but not as much as I would like. Big fan of their Closure Pale Ale, and this is the third time I have tried their Anger Black IPA.

I like to refer to this as Wookey Jack Lite. Which is not a bad thing to say the least. Also, the ABV lends it to be a beer in which you could have more than one at a seating. Not saying that it is sessionable, but it is a bit kinder in that regard versus other Black IPAs.

Appearance, Smell and taste are it's strengths. Jet black, great hop nose that tricks you into thinking its an IPA. But at the last second you catch that coffee and chocolate hint. Taste is very fullfilling with a smooth dry finish.

If anything, the mouthfeel is a bit lacking. Some may define this beer as being a bit watery, but I would not go that far. It just needs a bit more malt backbone.

Overall a great offering from Greenbush and enjoyable. Perfect for the cold weather season here in the Midwest when you still crave the hops but want something a little more robust.

This is one amazing beer, my fellow explorers.

The appearance is a solid jet black with mild carbonation and a beige two finger head

Smells: Roast Malt, Oats, Hops, Coffee, and Cocoa

Taste: Roast Malt, Coffee, Pine, Cocoa, and a boozy, citrus finish

Mouthfeel: Smooth and Thick!

Overall, I'd have this again in a heartbeat. Such a great beer for this time of year, when you don't want the total stout.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice deep rich brown hue with a HUGE billowing 4 finger mocha head that left sudsy lacing. Head just explodes...and that's not always a good thing.

S - Aromas are pretty nice. Good pine, lighter chocolate, roasted malts. Nice and deep and rich. Maybe a slight twinge of alcohol.

T - Taste is pretty straightforward. Piney hops, chocolate, good strong roast, faint coffee. Well executed.

M - Mouthfeel is good and creamy. Alcohol is hidden nicely.

O - Overall this is a very straightforward, well executed black IPA. The appearance needs some work as the head is simply unruly.
