Appearance: Great light tan lacing with a very thin layer of foam. Immutably black with a hint of red light peaking through.

Smell: Creamy espresso and a hint of sweet pine and brown sugar. A bit chalky, which keeps it nice and subtle with excellent balance.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sweet molasses and raisins. A bit chalky, just like the smell. Some toasted coffee and nuts in the finish. The mineral-like feel makes this rustic and highlights the carbonation, but mellows it as well. I wish the mouthfeel would hang around a bit more.

Overall: Not a knock-out…maybe a TKO.

Alright, ...am I going to get a real IPA with dark tendencies or am I going to get another hoppy Porter? It seems that most brewers are simply incapable of getting this right. But with 3 Floyds, I have high expectations.

Looking nothing like IPA at all, its ominously dark color is even more intense than those porters- its very stout-like, even as its arid and fluffy, sandy-white foam builds a tall column inside the glass. With tremendous retention and intricately splattering the glass with lace.

Sharp aromas of hops and char tilt toward more citrusy and resinous notions. White grapefruit, fresh orange peels, broken pine needles and the scent of a freshly mowed lawn all come to mind as the scent shifts from hops to malt. Its heavy toast character adds an acute character to the ale along with dry cocoa, campfire and burnt caramel.

Its taste is robust with the over-cooked caramels cocoa and coffee to start. But all that is quickly thrown to the wayside as the char and hops work in tandem across the middle. Tangy white grapefruit juicy, burnt citrus peels, and light sourish fructose gives the ale a decisive zesty quality. Finishing with resinous pine and burnt spruce- a whimsy of Christmas trees come to mind. The lingering char gives a coffee-like bitterness and seems to elevate the piney bitterness from hops.

Medium-bodied, the ale's high carbonation gives a lift to its tepid sweetness, giving the ale an airy effect. Forgivably, its dryness is also its curse as it opens up to ashy and roast-derived astringent textures as the ale closes. Lingering pine-type bitterness and char extend well into the next taste.

There's no doubt that this is and IPA first and the charred grains act in support. Another well-done ale by the hop experts at Three Floyds.

Pours Somewhat thick dark black with a great one and a half finger light tan head that has great retention.

Smell has both hops and malt forward. Malt is dark roasted somewhat charred and grainy in the nose along with some lighter hop aromas of pine and citrus.

Malt dominates this brew in taste. Charred malt adds a good bitterness along with rich deep roasted coffee and toffee like malt. Hop flavors of mainly pine follow and are very nicely balanced with the charred malt, bitterness is pretty much perfect and does not intrude on any individual component of the brew.

Mouthfeel is great. Good rich body and mild to moderate carbonation keep this highly drinkable and velvety smooth. Big sticky finish.

Overall this was a great black ipa. Bitterness in this was on point for a black ipa and let the roasted malt really come out in this brew.
