look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark brown, not quite black. Opaque with a light brown hue on the edges.

Aroma: Very reminiscent of Odell's Cutthroat Porter. Roasted coffee notes and some molasses. Just a hint of the hops.

Taste: Like a much hoppier version of their porter. However, instead of the hops competing with the perfectly selected malts, the two work together nicely. I get a little bit of heat in the back of my throat from the high abv, but it's not a bad thing. The first thing you taste is a bitterness from the hops. Aftertaste of dry dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: A surge of bitterness at first followed by a smooth and slightly drying effect. Definitely easy to take in medium to large sized sips. It's also not as thick as I suspected it to be, it has a very good consistency.

Final Thoughts: This is the first Double Black IPA I've ever had. Though, the name may sound daunting, it's actually one of the more interesting styles I've tasted. Pairs very nicely with a chocolate dessert. But I imagine it would also go well with any well seasoned steak. It's also great on it's own. A very versatile beer.
