Poured from a bottle into a large mug.
A: It pours a murky, dark brown (almost black color) with a short tan head that lasts for a few minutes before evaporating to a thin tan layer, leaving small patches of lace.
S: Has quite an aroma too it, I can smell it without having to bring my nose down. Floral tones predominate, as I would expect from the style.
T/M: Initially, it comes off to me as sweet, like mollasses and brown sugar. It's full bodied, rich and fairly carbonated. It finishes sweet, somewhat syrupy, but has a good follow through bitterness kick from the hops, although it's mild.
O: Quite a unique beer to me. I don't think I've had a black ale that was also an IPA, though I'm not really a fan of the latter. Nonetheless, this was quite an enjoyable beer, it was well balanced and robust. I'd have it again and I'd recommend.
