Poured into a tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle.

Pours deep black with a medium head that quickly dissipates.

Aroma is chocolatey and malty, with pleasing piney hop fragrance.

The taste is a combination of hop bitterness, chocolate malt, and slight alcohol burn. The bitterness remains, but the chocolate lingers on the back of the tongue even longer.

Medium mouthfeel; not too heavy and not too light. Just right.

Overall, this is a fun and complex beer. The hops balance well against the chocolate maltiness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- black as tar. 1 finger khaki head. Outstanding lacing

S- One of the more hop present Black IPAs I have had. Lots of citrus and hop character. Minty almost. Dig deep to find the roasted notes the labeling speaks of.

T- Hop forward again with the roast and malt settling in well towards the finish. Juicy initially before the charred toast and spice comes through.

M- Mid body. Warmth is certainly there, making this a great feel in the winter. Maybe a little slick feel.

O- Amazing really. The biggest problem I have with most black IPAs is that they are really more of a hoppy stout than a dark ipa. This one stays true to form better than any other that I have tried.
