Mondiale 2013. Nicely crafted black beer, not a black IPA as not too hoppy. Mostly focuses on the roast. Very lacy black bodied, chocolate malt, a little like a stout. Nicely drinkable and refreshing, nicely undercarbonated helps. Well hidden alcohol.

Thanks to oregonskibum for this extra.
Pours like a stout but maybe a little less oily in texture, nice coffee head.
Smells of mild roast, chocolate, candied citrus, some piney hops.
Taste is more of the candied orange citrus character, sweetness and roast from the malt profile, not as bitter or roasty as some examples of the style, pretty well balanced.
Very solid beer, not the best or most memorable example, but nothing to complain about.

Poured from the 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Body is a deep dark brown with some garnet highlights, topped by a healthy light tan head that hangs around for the duration and leaves a thick coating of lace on the glass. Aroma is dominated by a base of roasted malt. Some mocha and a mild nutty character come throu alongside some sharp, piney hops.
Palate is a yin-yang between a load of rich, roasty dark malt and a pile of dank, piney hops. The malt is prevalent up front, with the hops rearing their head mid-palate. The malt comes back to the fore on the swallow, leaving a lingering roasty note on the finish. Body is rich and creamy throughout, coating the tongue and delivering the rich flavor very well. This is a bit bigger Than many CDAs on the market, but it delivers a huge, flavorful punch that's assertive yet well-balanced.

appearance: served in a hilliards can-pint, ebony body - thick fluffy cola-brown foam with a nice sticky retention
smell: chocolate malt, green piney hops, hop resin, licorice
taste: The CDA style has made some strong strides this year and has turned into one that I really do appreciate - Gigantic did a lot of things right here. Nice chocolatey malt backbone, moderately bitter hops, pine resin, dry cocoa, licorice. Bipolar is what this style is all about :)
mouthfeel: on the lighter end of the spectrum, dry finish
overall: good stuff
