Highly disappointing. Look and mouthfeel fit the bill, but smell is non-distinct and taste is a mess. The black IPA genre is tough, as you're dealing with conflicting concepts so you need to pick a distinct identity. This beer has none.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Black Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, hint of pale malt, and slight hop. Overall, decent beer overall, nothing either mundane or extraordinary.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Nashville, I always like to try something local.
Standard pint glass, dark brown with a light beige head, good retention and thin lace.
Aroma of some chocolate malts and leafy/herbal hops, with the cocoa and chocolate really dominant. Chocolate is main flavor, with a finishing kick of herbal and grassy hops. Pretty complex, more flavor as it sits.
Medium body, holds the hoppiness at the end.
A nice choice, well made.
