Had this on tap at the Flying Saucer in Houston.

This is supposed to be a black IPA with coffee. If there's an IPA in there somewhere, I couldn't find it behind the overpowering taste of coffee grinds. If you love coffee, and especially coffee grinds, then this beer will be for you. If not, stay clear.

I like a good coffee porter or stout. Don't get me wrong. This doesn't taste like that at all. There's no coffee or chocolate notes. It's just massively overpowering coffee grinds.

This was a huge disappointment for me.

Your mileage may vary.

On tap at Hay Merchant

A: Pours a dark black, with light ruby around the edges. A two finger beige head forms, and recedes after a minute. Light lace is left behind.
S: At first whiff, I had to take a step back. Bitter, acrid, burnt coffee is so over powering. Nothing else for balance at all. It is like bad day old coffee. Which makes the nose pretty unpleasant.
T: The taste is no different, maybe not as intense. Though still just unpleasant bitter, burnt, and acrid day old coffee. Is this suppose to be an IPA, or a crappy coffee porter? Either way, not good.
M/D: A medium body and thin carbonation. Thin and watery. Just all around week IMO. Not easy or enjoyable to drink in any way shape or form.

First off, what the hell is the point of calling this any kind of IPA? This is a coffee porter, no matter which way you slice it. Second, even as a coffee porter this is really sub par. Just to bitter, acrid, and burnt. Not good.
