What a nice black fade in. This is black with loads of white lace. Nice. The aroma is hoppy and roasty. Also nice.

The taste is bitter roasty as well, and lingers nicely as a nice bitter, almost licorice flavor. Overall, this is less over the top than American styles often are but it is quite good and balanced. I would definitely get this again.

Very deep black color with a thick caramel head with eternal retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Delicious aroma of dark chocolate, not so hoppy relatively to its style.
Good flavor of roasted and smoked malts, but here with a decent amount of hops, though not aggressive. Notes of pines and coffee. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a long lasting coffee taste.
Full malty body with medium carbonation.
Excellent Black IPA, flavorful with a nice punch without knocking you numb.
