Capital Brewery Dark Voyage Black IPA
Tasting notes originally from 2/13/14. Had this on tap at the Nitty Gritty. This was served chilled in a shaker pint glass.
A) The lighting in the bar wasn't ideal, but this appeared to be a dark brown with a finger of frothy light tan head. Nice retention... Not much lacing.
S) Heavy dose of roast... Some light pine. A bit herbal/earthy...
T) Mostly roasted malt. Distant chocolate, and light pine. All the toasted malt kind of dominates the flavor.
M) Medium body with no carbonation issues. Pretty smooth... Goes down easy enough from a mouthfeel perspective. Okay aftertaste...
O) This was okay... Less roast and more hops would be about the simplest way to describe how I felt. Black Top from New Glarus is a much better representation of this style in my opinion.

Appearance - Very dark brown to black. Hard to be certain, but appears clear. Long-lived foamy off-white head.
Smell - A light aroma of indistinct malt and a goodly dose of floral hops.
Taste - Smokey malt, tastes of charcoal and coffee. Hops is surprisingly subdued, but present in a light herb and grapefruit finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium and creamy.
Overall - This beer is much smoother drinking than I anticipated. The flavors are rich, but balanced. The hop level seems like it might be a bit lower than many would expect from an IPA.
