4.53/5 rDev +21.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Aroma: the roasty characteristics come through first, but there is a fair amount of hop aroma coming through on the nose.
Appearance: dark tan, brown ale, with a white head. Fairly clear for not being filtered. Intriguing...
Flavor: black and tan-like characteristics, but decidedly San Diego. All the hops you want, all the roast and malt you deserve...
Mouthfeel: slightly light, but likely medium body. Finishes dry like a number of the other Societe beers.
Overall Impression: other than Stone's 15th Anny beer, this might be my favorite beer in this style. Thankfully, Societe brews this one semi-regularly...

Stainless steel Societe growler, filled about a week before tasting.
The body is red-brown around the edges, getting more deeply hued towards the center, where it is a rich, dark brown color, almost black. A thick, compact head forms, khaki in color. It has really nice retention; the beer did not lose any carbonation at all.
Aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate and hazelnuts come across first. Once the malts die back a bit, the hop aromas start to come across, imparting notes of grapefruit, mint and pine.
There's a lot of continuity between the nose and the flavors of this beer. Bold, roasty notes, with flavors of black coffee and some chicory-like tones. Bitter chocolate, with a dry body mid-palate. Juicy grapefruit flavors come up, with a strong pine bitterness and some mint on the end. Fairly dry on the finish.
A good Black IPA, the malt and hop profile meld together well.
Serving type: growler
