3.4/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

from notes:

P: A full finger of frothy light tan head with decent retention that leaves a thin layer of silky lace on top of a body of dark brown almost black with ruby highlights.

S: Robust piney hops with roasted nutty malts, sweet dark fruits and a great dose of earthy freshness.

T/M: Taste follows the nose to a medium silky mouthfeel with big woody hops and grapefruit on the back of the throat. Dry and spicy after tastes that is complimented by molasses, apples, and dry grass. Big on hops but smooth and not over bearing.

O: Excellent black ale that is easy to drink and a great session beer that delivers outstanding taste. I picked this up for less than $7 and it was well worth it.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with microbubbles trailing up the sides and a sticky oatmeal colored head that last a bit.

S- This beer has a musty herbal hops aroma but it otherwise pretty clean

T- The slightly pungent dark woody hops mellows into a slight tart hint in the finish. There is a soft black malt bitterness that blends with some dandelion hop flavors in the finish.

M- the medium mouthfeel has a slight slippery texture in the finish.

O- The mellow flavor is more pungent that other hop flavors and the roasted black malt flavor grows as the beer opens. The tartness gets a bit stronger as it opens up aswell.

3.4/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured in to a tulip. Somewhat translucent black body with hints of ruby. 1/4 finger head that faded quick.

Aroma was a bit citrusy, floral and hints of roasted malt. Nothing too complex, pretty straight forward.

Taste was a bit on the roasty/chocolatey side. Mild malty flavors, a bit bready. Citrus and grapefruit hop flavors that turn to a mellow bitterness.

Mouthfeel was light body, medium carb and crisp finish.

Could use a bit more malt and hop flavors.
