3.35/5 rDev -14.3%
Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark brown coloring with slight ruby highlights around the edges and a frothy, small bubbled, thin head coating the surface. Aromas of roast and chocolate, with resiny and bitter hops presence to balance out the nose. Very rich smells. Flavors are bitter and resiny on the forward tongue, with a darkly roasted backbone of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is a bit off balance, with bitterness at the beginning and end overpowering. The body is light, and the carbonation makes it effervescent, and almost sharp. Bitter roast and hoppy aftertaste, with a dry, almost astringent finish. Roasty linger left behind. This one was promising, but it came off the rails a bit at the end.

12oz bottle poured into snifter
Opaque black with a bubbly, thicker tanned head. Dissolves into patchy lacing with a wisp of filmy retention.
Piny hops with hints of citrus peel. Softly bitter, roasted dark malts, coffee beans, chocolate and a hint of smoke.
Sticky pine needle hoppiness and a touch of citrus with grapefruit. Resinous, lightly sweet and roasty. Warming dark malts, toasted nuts, dark chocolate, coffee beans and a touch of smoke. Finishes bitter with a hint of alcohol warmth.
Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, sticky and chewy on the tongue. Decent black DIPA with a nice pine-hop profile.

From the 12 fl. oz., bottle. Sampled on February 7, 2014.
The pour is a very dark brown and just about black with a lingering off-white head. Looks like a craft beer,
The aroma is pretty straight forward. Lots on sweetness.

The pour is quite nice with its dark brown to near black color. Lingering off-white head. Really fresh aroma with an good fruit hop character as well as a clean malt note. Licorice. The body is medium. The taste has a kind of malted licorice thing going on but generally smooth.,

A: Dark brown like slightly weak coffee; creamy, tan head- almost like it was a nitro pour; slowly dissipated, leaving a ring around the edges; some lacing;
S: My first sense was stale coffee or coffee grounds. As it warmed, I got more dark chocolate.
T: Bittersweet chocolate up front; then coffee, leading to a moderately bitter finish; the roasted malts really come through
M: a little thin for a double, IMHO. Hides the ABV very well. Moderate carbonation.
O: An enjoyable beer, but not special.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle with a date area but nothing notched out.
Black with some light coming through on the edges. A very big beige head (maybe too big). Initially nice hoppy aromas that fade fast leaving some malts to shine through. Nice hop flavors with a mild bitterness and a hint of malt roastiness. Smooth and silky with a moderate carbonation.
A very nice RI beer!
