look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Brown-edged black into the glass, plenty of head on top and lots of lasting lacing in the glass. Good coverage, with long lasting head retention.

Roasty coffee aroma, with an undercurrent of green herbal hops. Dry and bitter, not at all sweet. Flavors are similarly dry, roasty, and hoppy. Lasting residual bitterness in the aftertaste. Bitter unsweetened chocolate and dark roast coffee up front, herbal pine in the middle and finish. Dry ashy roast, vague hop oils and bitter orange peel. Light and drinkable with ample hop character. Overall a nice and tightly put together black IPA.

Thanks for this one Eric!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap
