Fade to Black 4 pours ... black. The head is thick and leaves nice sheets of lace behind. The aroma isn't as strong as it could be, and only provides a generic chocolate and nondescript hop nose. The taste comes off at first as a standard hop and dark malt deal, but as the aftertaste comes on, the hop bitterness only gets stronger in intensity. Helped out by the roast, the bitterness gets very intense here on the finish. The mouthfeel is light and very drying, and the drinkability is solid. A nice beer overall.

Having not had this particular style don't know what to compare it to but I'm really enjoying this offering. Pours a one finger head and pitch black. Some good lacing on the glass. The nose is a nice chocoalaty, piney hops aroma. The tongue is kinda like the nose, a chocolaty, piney hoppy, balanced taste. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end as I was planning to purchase something which kicked and advised to give this one a try. Much enjoyment.

12oz bottle, bottled on 11/8/2012 pours pitch black with a frothy tan head; good retention & some lace is left on the glass. Aromas seem muted, roasty dark malt, a little smoky. Tastes are bolder with roasted barley, chocolate, smoke, piny hops on the finish give it some bitterness and a nice balance. Thin-to-medium bodied, nice carbonation. Overall, good but seems to be one note.

fade to black from left hand pours very dark, even opaque. there really isnt much of a smell at all. the taste is a very bitter kick, with a slight barley flavor at the finish. this is a powerful dark beer but i wish there was more spices or sweetness going on. if you just want the intense kick of a black beer this one is for you. also, it has the right amount of carbonation, so the mouth feel is pretty good. just a sucker punch of bitterness in your mouth-
