Got this on tap at The Raddler in Logan Square Chicago. Pours very dark. Appears foamy in fine bubbles making for a soft and creamy mouthfeel. No too heavy. Fig and dark malt in a faintish nose. Roasted malts on tatse. A well executed and clean but simple dark ale.

Served in a tumbler at Mundelein Brewfest 2014.

Staying put with Temperance to try out my second black IPA of the day (more to follow, of course). It pours a clear midnight sienna topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, light treacle, pine sap, and a touch of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, the roast in the forefront of everything, the pine its own Zero Mustafa-style second. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a nice black IPA, a bit unbalanced in favor of the roast, but it's still decently enjoyable.
