A: Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is black with a 1-finger, tight-bubbled light-brown head. Leaves behind good lacing.
S: Some roasty notes, a touch of hops - but not terribly strong in the nose all around.
T: Roasted barley malt, some charcoal or char and a lingering touch of chocolate malt at the finish. Hops are piney, and first impression is that they're not as strong or as juicy (citrusy) as I'd like. However, as it warms up a bit (or as my palate adjusts to the roasty flavors), I get more grapefuit and juicy hops. Alcohol is noted at the finish, both in heat and as a drying element. Heat felt in belly. Finishes with lingering roastiness that borders on burnt at times.
M: Good feel to this beer - quite smooth, with modest carbonation. Medium-to-full in heft, but drinks lighter.
O: Good. I was hoping for better, but this is solid.

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.
