3.89/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75
a beer inspired by current events
talking head... sizzling really, nice deep cocoa tone running about one finger thick, nearly jet black presentation, the head sticks and rolls around well, good uniform bubble construction, a formidable looking beer
pretty hoppy.. but smoky-ish, really bright stinging hops with almost a porter blanket underneath, definite molasses, not sure I love it but it is damn interesting
ummm, velvety... like a really malty DIPA with a roasty kick, some bitterness that blends more into the euro chocolate zone, nice roasty undertones that meld into hops coated in molasses then meld into bitterness that almost spikes medicinal (almost), the abv also seems to hit harder than what is listed on the bottle
tasty, I can't say I love the hybrid but this is an interesting and well made brew. worth a try

T-dark roasted malt, citrus, chocolate, coffee, pine, moderate bitter finish
F-medium body with moderate carbonation, smooth but with a bite
O-one of the better black IPAs (in this case DIPA), harmonious blend of flavors

On tap at City a Beer Store San Francisco. Dark black color, looks like a stout. Aroma is mildly hoppy but mostly just dark malts. Flavor is more if the same. In fact this really felt like strong porter more than a black IPA which was fine with me as J didn't feel like the hops conflicted with the malts. Decent beer.
