4.46/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

OG: 1.066 / IBU: 57 / Malt: Two Row, Crystal 60, Chocolate, Wheat, Munich, Carafa, and roasted barley / Hops: Centennial, Ahtanum, and Chinook.

Picked up a 22oz bomber as a gift from the owner of BCB Tasting Room in Tijuana. The wife and I dropped some cash in there this past weekend and he noticed that I had a liking for the same brewery's IPA - La Lupulosa, so when I purchased 4 bottles for the road, he threw this one in on the house - much thanks Ruben Valenzuela!

Poured from a bomber into an Odell's branded tulip glass.

Pours deep black with burnt orange hues along the bottom of the glass when held up to the light, solid 2" tan head that lingers for quite a while, eventually giving way to massive amounts of lacing that coat my glass from start to finish. The nose is sweet carmel, fresh roasted coffee, earthy herbal hops that are wet and mossy. Flavor is similar to the nose but more bold roastiness that you would find in a bag of fresh roasted coffee beans, hop is upfront in the mix big time where it was slightly hidden in the smell (some may call this a Black IPA), the finish is malty but not overpowering, with a bittersweet chocolate finish that rounds this one out nicely. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, smooth and creamy, with good carbonation that fits the style quite well.

Overall enjoyable black ale that is hop forward but well balanced with a good malt back and pleasant flavors of dark chocolate and fresh roasted coffee. Would love to try this on draft. Thanks again to the BCB Tasting Room and Ruben Valenzuela for the hook up!
