look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
draft at beer study in chapel hill. snifter.
dark brown/black color with a half inch beige head. smell is extremely roasty...not much hop presence. taste is quite malty and a bit too smoky. not much hop presence again. but good. mild body...mild carbonation.
overall good. not on par with their other ipas but this is a tough style to pull off.
Serving type: on-tap

3.9/5 rDev -0.5%

Dark brown to black color with a creamy covering. Smells of pine, Christmas trees, and minty hop greenness, subtle charred roasted malt, and general dankness. A blend of pine & roastiness in the mouth...chocolate and citrus rind. Not a tremendous amount of flavor from the hops, but they blend well with the malts so that nothing stands out in particular (in a good way). Everything just works together and the results are pretty satisfying. Medium bodied and bitter, but not overly aggressive. Solid stuff here.

Solid finger plus of light tan foam, good mixture of all bubble sizes and excellent retention, barely moves even as a few dimples form, the lacing forms broad streaks which then slowly slide downwards in a solid sheet. Opaque, more blackish than pure black, you get a good bit of dark brown and some orange at the glass bottom and rims, overall fresh in appearance. The nose first hits you with mocha, cocoa notes with a finely burnt character before sea salt, peat, wet meadow herbal matter, the hops determined to spread widely, hence the orange citrus, white pit fruit never enunciates that clearly, some pine, anise and camphor, lots of cleansing, scrubbing action. Medium-bodied, the carbonation is not quite fluffy but does expand from cheek to cheek. The bitterness of the herbaceous hops clear right from the start and that burnt, charred aspect noticeable. Dark chocolate, coffee and hard caramel candy barely sweeten things despite big presence. Pine, blood orange, some flowers but close to no fruit of note. The mouth feel is clean and it creates a strong lifting perfume. Good vibrating finish, keeps tingling. Dryness perhaps makes it more of a meal accompaniment than session beer.
