Holding this beer up to the light it's more of a deep reddish to brown hue. It has an awesome stout-looking head on top that is creamy for sure.

It smells hoppy yet with a slight 'dubbel smell'. It has that malty smell thats more like toast. Definitely the best of both worlds.

First taste is roasted/toasted flavor like burnt bread crust. This actually lingers pretty much all the way through. It is hoppy as anything though, that comes next. Very 'green' hop flavor. It's very earthy. It has a way of always going back to the burnt taste though, but I'm kind of loving it.

Mouthfeel is silk.

Drinkability is super high for a 6.5% brew.

Head is lacing all the way, beer is very unique and completely delicious. A+

Having spent many a delirious day in Portland, Oregon and enjoying ready access to this employee-owned brewery, I was delighted to find it available here in the Washington, DC area. Additionally, my increasing devotion to Cascadian dark ales (aka Black IPA), made this discovery more enjoyable.

The opening looks promising: a vibrant head of sponge emitting a nutty aroma; the body is a dark ruby color with orange splotches reflecting light at the bottom of the glass. There is no lacing as the head quickly slips away. The nose is overwhelmed by a massive pine blast, peppered with minor crumbs of raisin, spice and orange. Meanwhile … down in the palate, there is an initiation of lemongrass followed by a crisp maltiness, one which builds as the quaff ensues.

There is a fine structure that holds it all together as there is no single ingredient that stands alone; they all unite to prove the drinker a complex, yet comfortable experience. Great beer from a great brewery/ Full sail ahead to Beervana!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Deep amber, verging on black, with a massive, coarse tan head, which retains well. Thick, patchy, scattered lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Rich aromas of coffee, bitter cocoa, and roasted malt vie with juicy citric hops.

Taste: Opens with an abundance of roasted malt, then citric hops rise to ascendency. Along the way, bitter cocoa, and cold coffee present. The citric hops have an aspect more of bitter orange rind than grapefruit. Late in the taste, there is a subtle sweet chocolate, brief but notable. Finishes with a lingering, moderate hop presence.

Mouth fee: Smooth soft, and very full, with an almost creamy aspect.

Drinkability/notes: Very good, and quite a bargain at less than five dollars for a bomber.

Presentation: Packaged in a stand twenty-two ounce brown glass bomber with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Spec's in Texas in January of 2013 for $4.99/22 oz bomber.

This is not so interesting a black ale, to me. It looks a lot thinner than any black ale I have seen, to date. Flavor profile is...okay. A lot of this really strikes me more as a brown ale than a black ale. There are some hop characteristics that pop in at the end of this, but it really isn't enough to save the experience. A nice "beer" to drink, but not really all that great as a black ale.
