Poured this one into a half lite dimpled stein. I poured this brew in quickly and the head produced was dark tan, and about three fingers thick. The body is jet black with some reddish/black tea hues shining through on the edges of the glass.

The aroma is on a milky lactose type of aroma, along with vanilla and fig.
Taste wise it's smoky, a little coffee and vanilla, with a hint of chocolate.

Feels smooth and full in body. A desert in a glass for sure, and a lager unlike I've had before!

Happy to find this in Atlanta a year and a half after it was released

A - Porter dark with 1 finger of head and a tiny bit of lace on the glass

S - Dark malts and dry hops.

T - Starts out like a porter with burnt malts, but then the hops kick in like fire. Very citrusy, exellent!

M - Well carbonated and full body. Very nice mouthfeel

O - An excellent hoppy black ipa. It's technically a black lager, with tons of hops, but it tastes like a good old fashioned black ipa double dry hopped. As good as it gets for this style.
