3.75/5 rDev -5.1%
Had on tap for $5.99 a pint at Terry's Terrace in Harrison Township (?), Michigan.
Just not as impressed as the majority of people here.
Appearance: Pitch black with a creamy finger or two of head. Pretty gorgeous, if I may say so. The lacing doesn't last through the whole glass, but it's nice looking regardless.
Smell: Quite interesting, like the taste is... smells like a stout or dark coffee with hops. Has roasted malts, coffee, and... hops.
Taste: A lot like the smell, but with tastes of char and smoke as well. The hops aren't present initially, but kick in on the finish. It definitely has a different taste for the average craft beer drinker (whatever that means), but it's certainly not an unpleasant one. I definitely preferred this beer when it was a little bit colder than room temperature -- once it warmed up, the alcohol could be traced, there was a warmth in the throat, the primary taste was that of smoked wood, and the bitterness really kicked in. I didn't hate it, but it was certainly tastier within the first 15-20 minutes of having it, as it seemed to just be more balanced.
It isn't my favorite of the style, but it has a unique taste to it... it had me thinking, and it really changes quite a lot the more it warms up. Wouldn't be my go-to black ale, but it's a very nice offering from a brewery that I have never heard of. Good going, Greenbush.

I was able to try Anger from Green BUSH at a local tavern that just recently opened. The beer poured a dark nearly opaque amber with thin slightly off-whote head that left spotty lacing. The smell included piney hops and subtle roast. The taste started just as most IPAs ....a nice piney citrus that was quickly replaced with roast and then bittering hops that helped to cleanse the pallet. The mouthfeel was a medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall the beer was decent....but comapred to the Stone SSRIPA it was not as good. I would definitely have it again....and again....and again....if I see it in the future.

Half finger head with nice lacing on a jet black body. Aroma is balanced with roasted malts, earthy hops, with light coffee and vanilla. Flavor is also fairly well balanced for the style with roasted malts and dark chocolate mingling well throughout with the earthy and slightly floral/grassy hops. Medium body and light to moderate carbonation. So many of these aren't very well balanced and either are more of a stout or an IPA but the balance here makes this a nice black IPA it's jut not complex enough to make it the best but still one to try while at the brewery.

12oz bottle into a tulip.
a - pours a murky brown shade with a thin cap of light brown head. leaves thick rings of lacing in the glass.
s - sweet citrus, faint roasted malt, faint dark fruits, faint pine resin.
t - more of the nose. pine resin, roasted barley, faint grapefruit, faint dark fruits. has an herbal bitterness that hangs on the tongue for quite a while. really an interesting flavor profile. tastes...angry.
t - lighter in body with lighter carbonation and a medium co2 profile.
o - an interesting take on the style. not quite like any other beer i have tried. memorable, but maybe just shy of greatness. worth trying if you come across it.
