Bottled Dec. 11th 2012! Wow this one is getting on! Bought late last Fall as part of a mixed sixpack I put together (I usually forget to bring a magnifier to read the bottling codes) so it was already nearly a year old when I got my hands on it.

a: Black with plenty of clear ruby when seen through light. Inch tall tan head receded to patchy surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Dark ripe fruit.

t: Initially overripe dark fruit with bitter hop bite. Bitterness does not linger much at first but later hangs on. As it warms, a coffee and chocolate roastiness becomes prominent.

m: Medium to full bodied. Not a lot of carbonation tingle.

o: A rich and tasty porter. No doubt the name is to suggest more hops than "foreign" porters, and that seems confirmed by the level of bitterness.

Appearance: dark brown, nearly black. ’Chunks’ of sediment floating in suspension. Pours with a 2" beige head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing.
Aroma: cocoa powder, coffee, citrus rind hops.
Mouthfeel: medium and slightly chewy with a dry finish.
Flavor: an echo of the aroma with cocoa, coffee, some carmel sweetness and a bold citrus rind bitterness that lingers in the finish.
Overall: Good, but not great.

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

Pours a deep brown/black with a lingering tan head.

Aroma is catty, resiny, and roasty, with a touch of citrus hop character adding complexity. A hint of chocolate surfaces late.

Flavor reveals overwhelming roast malt, finishing charred and bitter. Catty hops counter a resiny, grassy, citrus base. The balance is roast bitterness and hops.

Body is moderate to a touch light, with moderate carbonation and a slightly astringent finish.

Roast malt dominates, and chocolate is not as prevalent as I'd prefer. Hops clash a bit with the roastiness. Not my cup of tea. Much more of a black ipa than a porter. The char really killed it.

12 oz bottle.

A - Poured into a tulip glass, a dark brownish black with a thin hanging lace.

S - Funk, chocolate, citrus, smoke

T - Nuts, chocolate, smoke, hop bitterness on the finish.

M - Somewhat thin. Viscous.

O - I understand they are trying to stretch boundries, which I respect. The finish and aftertaste is slightly off, but with time I may appreciate it. Draw your own conclusions on this one.

Sampled at Avery's tap room while attending the BA social held there 04/19/14.

Deep brown body with a thin, persistent head. Smell consists of dark roasted grains with cocoa and vanilla. The taste mirrors the aroma. Medium bodied; smooth mouthfeel.

A very respectable porter that isn't overly rich in flavor or feel yet is entirely tasty and drinkable. Satisfying.

Pours opaque very dark brown. The 1/2 inch off-white head quickly fades to a thin film and a ring on top that leaves strands of lace.

The aroma is dominated by grapefruit and faint pine.

The flavor is mostly bitter hops and assorted citrus fruit (mostly grapefruit).

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

This beer is suffering from a major identity crisis. It is classified here as an American black ale, the name implies that it is a porter and the label describes it as a black IPA. Whatever it is, it is a only a decent one.
