Enjoyed on tap at the 2012 ABR, from notes. Pour was black but not viscous kicking up a half finger of tan foam. The nose and flavor were very roasty, and the taste smokey. Underlying this was citric and resin hop flavor, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Mildly bitter. Medium body. The smoke tended to overpower the flavors in the samples we tried at the festival. Will try it again at some point no doubt.

Poured from 12 oz can into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a nice dark black with no light emerging with backlighting. 1 inch dark tan head with good retention and lacing.
S: Pine and soft citrus hops, light caramel malt. Much more hop-forward than I was expecting here (guess I should have read the can).
T: Pine hops hit first, then comes the chocolate and dark caramel malt notes. Hint of bitter coffee.
M: Light-medium body. Sharp hops up front, then smooth sweet malt hits in the mid-palate. Finish is more dry and bitter hops (hint of burnt chocolate).
D: This black IPA drinks more like an IPA mixed with a black ale. The two parts seem to remain apart...not melding as much as one would like.
Serving type: can

Many pint glasses consumed at the Indeed tap room in NE Minneapolis.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown/black slightly cloudy with a nice one finger tan foam head that fades quickly and leaves nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Hops, dark roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate on the nose.
Taste: Some good hops bitterness up front, with a great dark roasted malt smoothness after. Some hints of coffee, black licorice and dark chocolates in the mix. A really satisfying dark ale flavor that's not overpowering in any aspect.
Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation with a crisp and smooth finish.
Overall: I have tried many of the Indeed beers on tap or in cans, and this remains one of my favorites. I love that perfect mix of hops and dark roasted malts and could drink this one all day long...and I have! Another winner from Indeed.
