12oz bottle to snifter

A- pours a deep jet black color with a one-finger creamy khaki colored head that retains long after the pour, looking like espresso cream and leaving some lacing behind 4.5

S- grainy with some spicy hop aromas with notes of earth, pepper, licorice, toasted bread, milk chocolate and a hint of coffee. Also picking up a hint of citrus/piney hops 3.75

T- sharp citrusy hops up front with an emphasis on grapefruit and orange zest, earthy, leafy & woodsy notes kick in with some herbal/floral hop flavors, caramel/toasted bready malt, the finish gives some dry bitter black coffee with a hint of dark chocolate 4 1.8

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy & prickly mouthfeel and a creamy semi-dry finish 3.75

O- this is the first black ale that had such an emphasis on citrusy hops, it was quite the contrast with the chocolate/coffee malt notes. Very good overall, hides the alcohol well 4
