look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Super dark, muddy brown color. Solid light beige head.

Strong, astringent hop aroma of pine and citric zest. There's a solid underbelly of roasted malt in the aroma.

Full on burnt malts giving flavors of dark bread crust, coffee, and super dry chocolate. The hops mix with the bitter, burnt malts to add another layer of complexity to the bitterness. Definitely on the bitter side overall. the malts are undetectable on the finish.

The palate feels resiny, somewhat dry, but also a little oily. Pretty good Black ale, but not something I'd want to drink regularly.

A: This one comes off more as a darker shade of grayish-brown than a true black. Mostly opaque, but shows some light through the edges. Forms a smallish sized light tan colored head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is roasty and hoppy. Notes of burnt coffee, grapefruit, and pine.

T: The taste is a bit difficult to describe. As to be expected with FFF, it is very hop forward, most notably pine and grapefruit pith. There is a slight anise flavor. However, while it is not incredibly malty or roasty, there is a "black" flavor to the beer. Like a heavily charred or burnt aftertaste. In the end, I believe it is chicory that I am tasting, which would also explain why this beer is "New Orleans-Style."

M: Medium bodied. Moderate bitterness. Very dry on the finish. Rather high carbonation.

O: A decent beer. Certainly not the greatest, but a different take on the style.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle.

Pours dark brown with an inch-plus head of tan. Plenty of tattered lacing and a solid skim coat on the surface for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with chocolate and underlying citrus. Roasty and a bit smokey with hints of orange, apricot, and pine.

Medium bodied with a crisp, slightly lush mouthfeel.

Bitter chocolate with a hop bite starts the palate. Slightly acrid malt with shades of pine-rubbed oranges.

Finishes with lingering roast and fading citrus.

Unlike most other FFF IPAs, the hops are subdued in this beer, and the roast/chocolate character overshadows them. More akin to a hoppy porter.
