4.05/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: almost pitch black body - hint of ruby peeks through - with a thick dark tan head; scattered lacings
S: chocolate roasted malts, dark deep fruit; earthy, piney hops
T: lotsa of dark malt flavors, like espresso sweetened with cane sugar; buried dark fruit and dark caramel; bitterer on the finish than the front
M: crisp, bittering finish, smooth, slightly sticky, slightly coating
O: a delicious black ale - reminded me of other great ABAs like Stone's Sublimely Self-Righteous, Uinta's Dubhe, Dark Horse's Special Black Ale, and Dark Element. If any of those strike your fancy, this is a safe bet. Lots of roasty dark malts and well-represented hops. A little on the sweet (as opposed to dry/bitter) side of an ABA.

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.
