3.38/5 rDev -14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Ruby red to slight brown. Huge khaki to slightly mocha 2 finger head. Extremely creamy head. Laces all over glass. Carbonation bubble creep up all sides of the glass. Looks amazing. However, not black! Loses 1 pt. for that.
S: Bready yeast, pine, herbal, slight evergreen, chocolate, caramel, sweetness and a hint of alcohol. All subtle together.
T: Spicy, herbal, piney, huge hoppy notes, bitterness is large, malt, spiciness really comes back, lingering bitterness...does not contain coffee, black patent or any roasted notes. This tastes more like a dark caramel ipa. Not a black ipa.
M: Well carbed. Medium bodied, dry and sweet balance with a lingering bitterness.
O: It's an ok beer. It's not to style. It's more just a big ipa. Hides alcohol well with matched assertive bitterness. This is not a black ipa. This is a brown/porterish ipa at best.
Serving type: bottle
