Beer pours a nice dark brown, ruby color. Much lighter than I was expecting for a "black" ale. Not much head.

Beer smells piney and citrusy.

Beer tastes very piney on the initial sip, before giving way to a nice, nutty taste. Also, slightly smokey as well.

Beer is a bit more carbonated than I would have liked.

Overall solid black ale.

12 oz bottle into a grand Bordeaux wine glass.
Enjoy By Date: 10/26/12
Puschased from Whole Foods Portland ME

A: brown with amber red hues. 3 fingers of frothy sand-colored head the recedes slowly and leaves great lacing.

S: bright piney hops up front with a solid backbone of malty brown sugar and caramel notes. Cut grass, saginess, roasted malt, a hint of filbert. Complex smell, though a bit sweet.

T: a lot less sweet malt then I would have guessed from the nose. Nice hop piney bitterness, earthy, floral, with a hint of malty caramel, very well balanced. Very good.

M: nice and smooth, no alcohol heat, good carbonation.

O: wow very good ale. The taste wins out on this one. Nose has a lot going on but seems a bit sweet and malty, but wow the taste is very subtle in all regards and finely balanced. Certainly a brew that is approachable and one I could drink a lot of. Recommend.

Sampled from a bottle - best by November 2012. Dark brown in color with deep ruby red hues and good clarity despite the dark color. Poured with a dense, rocky beige foam with good staying power that also left sheets of thick sticky lacings on the glass. Complex combination of dark roasted malt, coffee and chocolate malt aromas along with citrus, floral and and pine hops that intensify as this warms. Rich, smooth feel with aggressive carbonation. Dark roasted and lightly burnt malt flavors up front, floral and citrus hop bitterness from the middle thru to the end. A hint of dark chocolate flavor toward the end as the dark and burnt roasted malt flavor intensify at the finish in combination with a delayed bitter pine hop aftertaste. A multitude of aromas and flavors make this a beer to be sought out.

Balanced. Bitter all the way through. when the roasted bitterness meets the hops on the back end it could be a bit much. The bartender did state they are marketing this as a black IPA medium bodied, nice lacing light carbonation very easy to drink but not sessionable. Licorice.
Off tap served in a tulip.

A - Pours a deep ruby/brown with a two finger thick, creamy, off white head.

S - Pine, citrus, chocolate, caramel, toffee.

T - The smell correlates well with the taste. Piney, resinous, fresh herb, rosemary, chocolate, licorice, caramel, toffee.

M - Nice carbonation. Slightly buttery/creamy. Medium bodied.

O - Balanced. Bitter all the way through. When the roasted bitterness meets the hops on the back end it could be a bit much for some people. The bartender did state they are marketing this as a black IPA. Very easy to drink but not sessionable.
