Poured into a mug.

It's a dark, clear ruby color. Cream colored head that leaves excellent lacing.

Pretty faint smell. A touch of bittering hops and a whiff of coffee.

Nice hop bitterness right up front. There's a nice spiciness. Not sure what the hemp seeds are supposed to taste like, but this beer definitely has an herbal kick. A bit of roastiness is in there if you look for it.

This beer is on the light side of medium with an appropriate carbonation.

This beer's pretty good. Not something that I will look forward to every year though.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

If it's black, does that mean it has more THC...? Anyway, this stuff pours a dark black-garnet topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises char, light vinyl, mandarin orange syrup, and a dash of cocoa powder. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a good element of dark greenery tossed in for good measure (or variety...whichever you prefer). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this particular black ale just didn't do it for me. The darker aspects were too charred, to plastic-y, and the hoppier aspects didn't meld with the darker entirely well. Still, there was a definite focus on balance, which was almost achieved.

: A nice thick, dense head that was a medium tan color. A good lacing. Below the head the beer was a very dark brown.red hue, but the center remained opaque.

S: The aroma had dark roasted malt and light caramel.

T: The taste consisted of roasted barely and a little dark roast

M: The body is medium-heavy and very smooth; and, there is very little carbonation.

O: This beer was awesome
