4.2/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Arrives with a fudge brown colored liquid capped by an inch or so of foam; a fairly nice amount of lacing lined the glass as the beer was consumed
Smell: Piney with some roast and chocolate tones
Taste: Dark chocolate and roasted malt tones form the backbone with piney hops building into the middle; just a hint of citrus but both the hops and malt flavors are well-balanced
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A very impressive ABA; so many of them are unbalanced but this one showcased both the malt and hops very nicely
Serving type: on-tap

From 11/29/13 notes. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass at Top Hops in NYC at their Black Friday Goose Island event.
a - Pours a dark brown, almost black, color with two inches of light tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of dank pine hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate, citrus hops, oranges, toasted malts, and earthy notes. Nice nose; tons of pine hops up front which I love. Smells super fresh and hoppy.
t - Tastes of pine hops, roasted malts, citrus hops, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, toasted malts, and burnt malts. Not quite as hoppy as the nose but still a great mix of pine, citrus, and roasted notes.
m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitterness at all and very easy to drink for the ABV. Great mouthfeel.
o - Overall I thought this was a great beer; one of Carton's better beers and one of the better BLack IPAs I've had. Tons of pine hops in the nose and the taste is a little more balanced between pine and citrus hops and roasted malts. Easy to drink which is scary, and no bitterness which I love, wroth checking out if you like the style. Would love to have it again.
