From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Toasty, Roasty, Citrus, Bitter

Fin City hits all of the right spots for the American Black Ale style. The perfect level of roastiness is a great marriage to the herbal citrus hoppiness and bitterness that reaches 58 IBUs. Nothing massive so it is pretty damn easy to knock back and at least it is what was expected.

STYLE: American Black Ale | ABV: 6.0% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

S: Bottle
A: Nice black that has a very very deep ruby color if you shine a light thru.
S: strong citrusy hop smell slightly danky. Mild roastiness
T: Nice roasted maltiness, moderate bitterness, nice citrusy finish
M: good medium-full body
O: Very very good beer made by some awesome people. Its like a hoppy porter. Probably the best version of this style. Not just an ipa thats black, this has a good maltiness to back up those hops

Great example of the style - one of my favorites! Not a hoppy porter or a regular IPA that looks black... It's an IPA with delicious roastiness on the back end. I have only seen this beer at a random sketchy convenience store here in Frederick that sells macros plus this and two other Fin City beers; a little strange!
