A: served in a Shaker pint. It has a nice one inch tan head. Very nice lacing left behind as the beer level dropped.
S: Not a lot of aroma but this may have been impacted by the frozen glass it was served in (why do they do that?)
T: I am not a big fan black IPA but am willing to give them a try when I see a new one on tap. I liked this one more than most. The roasted notes were muted and the rye gave it a nice hit of spice.
M: Medium bodied, very smooth.
O: I would order this again if I saw it on tap. I probably would not buy a six pact as this isn't my favorite style. But, again, I liked this more than most of the black IPAs I've tried.
Serving type: on-tap

(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a pale tan head that is thick and creamy lasting or a bit.
S- The dark earthy malt has some cream notes and a green herbal hop hint in the finish.
T- The pungent dark hops have a roasted malt bitterness that gently comes through with a pungent hops linger on the back of the tongue. There is a hint of coffee roasted malt in the bitterness as it opens.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight fizz finish that boost the bitterness.
O- There are lots of dark bittern notes in this beer that overpower any malt or hop flavor and not much other character. The big bitterness makes it a bit hard to get through a full bottle.
Serving type: bottle
