poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a dark, used-motor oil black capped by a creamy, tan, two-finger head. Head stays intact all the way down the glass. Leaves behind a nice wall of lacing.

S - Upon opening the bottle, there is a light nose of chocolate and malt - not much hinting at what lies within! In the glass, licorice, molasses, and alcohol notes begin to come out.

T - Chocolate malt upfront. The body is a delicious blend of dark rum, licorice, and molasses overlain on a rich, chocolate backbone. A bit more chocolate and touch of bitterness as the beer passes over the back of the tongue leads to a complex and delightful finish of candied plum, dark rum, and chocolate.

M - Full bodied and creamy like a good stout, but also embodies some of the chewyness of a well-crafted IPA. Just about perfect!

I figured that I'd finally pull this out of my refrigerator and review it after a hard weekend of working on the house and selling some car parts. The fact that today we switched back to Mountain Standard Time from daylight savings is only icing on the cake! This is a fantastically complex and rich beer that blends the attributes of two of my favorite styles: hardy stouts and IPAs. It is really just absolutely delicious and I could see myself drinking a couple of these in an evening if only I could erase from my memory the disaster resulting from $2 a pint Old Rasputin....

A - Pours dark burgundy brown color with a thin but even layer of toffee colored foam which sticks to the sides of the glass like glue.

S - Chocolate roasted malt, light char, and tangy citrus.

T - Follows the nose: Bitter chocolate roast throughout and ends with a tangy grapefruit/citrus, and pine finish. The lingering flavor on the palate is chocolate bitterness and a resiny coating of citrus.

M - Thick medium body and almost creamy carbonation.

O - Definitely worth trying and I'm not a fan at all of Black IPA's.

Pours a deep black with dense creamy tan head. Heavy lacing left behind and great head retention. Nose starts with some nice herbal hops along with some bright fruity notes. This is paired with a nice robust roasted barley note. Taste is herbal up front with plenty of roasted notes and piney hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Overall, I'm not a huge fan of the black IPA since they often seem gimmicky. This one melds the dark malts nicely with the hop profile and makes for a delicious beer.
