Damn tasty black IPA that easily tops some of the more highly rated 3 Floyds offerings. Somewhat mellow taste for it's ABV, a nice dark color and mild aroma. Good finish that leaves a slightly hop forward taste in your mouth. A nice choice for someone looking for a cross between a stout and an IPA.

Received in trade from Pidzik12 - Thanks Paul!

Tasting notes from 22oz bottle – taken on 07/27/13 with my Sierra Nevada balloon glass

A: Thick layer of oatmeal colored cream cap settles over a dark brownish-black body proving some ample retention efforts. Frothy chunks of lace cling to the glass all the way down the drink.

S: Smells of piney hops with an incredible amount of juicy citrus fruits present. I am getting some very mild dark malt mixed in that is reminiscent of a little char and black licorice. There is a slight sweetness to the overall aroma as well. Pleasurable nose with lots of citrus coming through.

T: Pine and citrus fruit flavors lead into some more earthy tones and a touch of charcoal roast. Has a brewers licorice and/or root like component coming through for sure. There is a relatively high level of perceived bitterness to the beer and the alcohol is incredibly well masked. Finishes fairly clean with a dry roastiness that is not too sharp or astringent. Pretty nice balance to this here black IPA.

M: Smoothand creamy feel under a moderately hefty body. Feels a little watery overall with a soft drying towards the finish. High on the bitters but not much residual lingering character noted. Rather clean in that regard.

D: Nice big pine and citrus hops with a more restrained roast character. I would say that this is not the best Black IPA out there but definitely one of the better ones and I am pumped to have been able to try.

Overall really enjoyable with nice balance.

A: A full two finger dark mocha head with sustain when poured into the FFF Teku glass. A thick lacing with tiny bubbles covering the edge of the glass as it fell into the beer. Dark dark brown with ruby hughes that shine through when backlit. Clear as far as i can tell.

S: As it poured the aroma was of light citrusy hops (citra?) that gave way to subtle grapefruit. As the foam receeded cocoa nibs and coffee were more prominant and the hops nearly indetectable. as it warms up spicy notes (chicory?) are noticable.

T: An assertive grapefruit bitterness that follows through to the aftertaste. Milk chocolate, roasty and coffee flavors that might have some chicory notes peaking through (new orleans style). Dark caramel and toffee sweetness is subdued by the bitterness but noticable enough to get fatiguing.

M: Large amount of body and moderate carbonation. The hops leave a dryness on the pallet that make it less drinkable when mixed with the coffee and roasted flavors

O: An interesting beer. (im guessing here) The chicory coffee used in the beer (if there is) is adding a character to the roast and mouth feel that doesn't make it very drinkable. It opens up at warmer temperatures and boarderlines on a stout, which (in my opinion) would have been a beter style for this beer. Overall. meh

bomber into a tulip

pours a dark black with a massive head with some impressive lacing. moderate hoppy aroma on the nose, nothing too huge. interesting taste. not quite an IPA. hops are a bit subdued and the maltiness definitely takes over. a bit of a burnt taste to this one actually, hard to describe. medium bodied with medium carbonation.

overall this one wasnt my favorite. not bad, but if this was the first 3F beer i tasted i wouldnt be impressed by the brewery. luckily they make some much better brews.
