3.13/5 rDev -21.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from a bottle with a use by of Nov. 30, 2012.
Appearance: Mahogany in glass, basically clear. Thick 3-finger foamy light brown head. Plenty of lacing in glass, minimal carbonation/bubbling.
Smell: Definite fruity hops, but with another rather strange smell within, malty, yeasty.
Taste: OK, I know this sounds strange, but here goes: A (very) quick taste of fruity hops which is immediately overwhelmed by malts and...well...the taste of liquid fiberglass (!!!) The bitterness very quickly builds up on your tongue. I am drinking this on a fresh palate. The alcohol is fairly well hidden and not dominant, like you'd think in an almost 9%ABV beer. I just burped...Empty stomach, but the flavor of this beer-burp was like redoing a surfboard!! I have never experienced a flavor like this in a craft...
Overall: If you like extremely bitter hop-beers, then you'll like this one. The bitterness factor is growing at an exceptional pace as I continue drinking this.
As I prefer crafts with a mother-lode of fruitiness (Like Pliny and Alesmith-X), I'll pass on this one.

4.19/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Dark brown, almost black with a creamy mocha head.
S: Pine, floral notes, kiwi and citrus in the nose.
T: Kiwi, grapefruit peel, citrus peel, citrus, lemon and grass, followed by roasted malt, espresso and coffee. Pretty much what you want out of the style, but perhaps not the best fruit flavor profile.
M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.
O: I'd prefer tangerine, mango, fresh orange, pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, tropical fruit, etc. mixed with the roasty flavors, but this is still a great beer. I'd definitely recommend it, if you like the black ale style.
