3.5/5 rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Only my second IBA or Black IPA.
Pours out very dark with 2 fingers of off-white head.
The aroma has a lot of roasted malt and a hint of chocolate, but only a hint of earthy hops.
In the taste the hops also take a backseat. This is more malty with some caramel sweetness and toasty notes, but the piney, earthy hops are in the background. Bit of a lighter mouthfeel than I would have liked.
Not a bad beer, but not the best for the style. Seems pretty average, but maybe it was a bad batch or something.
Serving type: on-tap

1 Pint, 6 oz bottle poured into a glass.
A: I love the deep brown color. Medium sized head.
S: The perfect balance of toasted and alcohol scent.
T: A great black ale. Toasted malt flavor. Even a hint of hops in here.
M: Great mouthfeel. Not overly carbonated or too much alcohol.
O: I love black ales and lagers. Unfortunately, I don't see enough of them. I would definitely get this again.
