Deep black hue gives off a nice muted glow that spurned a thick foamy head.

The aroma is mostly hops but a very balanced citrus and floral blend. Herbal, earthy tones mix with a grapefruit and nectarines like fruitiness.

The flavor is a hearty mix of slightly smoky char and strong floral hops. The hops are tempered and tasty with herbal and citrus notes. Some chocolate and char meets the tongue at the background.

This is properly carbonated with a good full feel but a nice ease.

This is amongst the better Black IPA's I've had as its well balanced yet still full flavored.

Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed on-tap @ Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, KY for $5.50. Tapped from a Creative Wooden Carved Tap Handle (they all are like this here) into a 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Has a nice dry hopped, piney aroma through all the malts. Very sweet after this and malty. Like a Black IPA should be.

Appearance- Received with a .5 finger, dark tan head that has average retention. Has the deepest brown body with no clarity. Leaves a few suds behind.

Flavor- Has a very strong hop flavor through all of these malts. Black malts are one of the most dominate characteristics and very well pronounced. Bready, hoppy, and light bitterness. Overall Flavor, Good!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Moderate Carbonation, Malty, and finishes with a bit of subtle hop closure.

Overall Impression- A really well balanced Black IPA! I do enjoy this style more and more each time I have it (when the hops are strong). Recommend!

A: Pours a murky black with brownish amber highlights and a thin, clinging tan mousse.

S: Aromas of juniper berry, caramel, pine, blood orange, grapefruit, lemon, and lime fill the nose.

T: Notes of caramel, dark chocolate, and roasted grain are quickly overtaken by flavors of blood orange, papaya, pine, spruce, juniper berry, lime, lemon, and grapefruit. The finish is resinous and intensely bitter with notes of juniper berry, pine, blood orange, and lemon.

M: Medium-to-full in body, sticky, and resinous. Carbonation is forceful, but not overpowering. As one would expect, alcohol is pronounced. This is definitely a beer to be sipped and savored.

O: Country Boy Brewing generally does well with any kind of IPA, and Heart of Dankness is certainly no exception. One of their better offerings, and a beer that is sure to improve over time, this is a must for those who are new to the brewery's work.
