3.89/5 rDev +4.9%
Served: 19 Jul 2014
Appearance: Dark brown with a one finger light brown head. Head sticks around for some time.
Smell: Slight notes of coffee along with a confident assertion of hops. More hops than malt in the nose.
Taste: Unlike the smell, the taste is dominated by the roasted malts. The malts provide big notes of dark, french roasted coffee or chocolate covered espresso beans. The hops are there and can be tasted on the back end of a sip, providing some spicy and citrusy zest. The hops provide good, round bitterness to offset some of the inherent sweetness from such a malt-driven beer.
Mouthfeel: Excellent carbonation to provide a slight boost to the medium body. This black IPA doesn't have a massive body, which is great.
Overall: One of the best black IPAs I've had, and one I would definitely recommend.

Murky brown, nice initial head that leaves curtains of lace.
Mostly coffee, chocolate and roasted notes in the nose, with a vague piney hop finish.
Initial porter-like roasted notes, coffee, chocolate, caramel, fading out to a strong grapefruit note.
Mouthfeel a bit light for me.
This was nice, the dark and hop notes tended to fight each other than blend at certain phases as it warmed, but overall I enjoyed it.
