This is a pretty black beer - a special treat. It has an amazing head. The brew has a fresh aroma and to some degree the taste follows, but it also features some tartness and a little bit of a dirty taste and aftertaste.

It is not as malty as it could be.

It is a very satisfying brew that lingers nicely on the tongue. Recommended.

Pours black with hint of ruby with about a half finger of head. Smells of smokey with citrusy hops. First taste is of citrusy hops followed by the earthy smokey stout flavors finishes very dry with long lingering citrus hops bitternes. Mouthfeel is creamy smokey coating of a stout but lighter like a porter.

Pours out a deep dark brown, almost black, with ruby highlights and a thin khaki head. Smells of ash, toasted and burnt grain along with resinous and citrusy hops. Flavor has a caramel malt backbone with tinges of roasted malts. Fruity esters are present. Hops are big on citrus peel and have an earthy character. Finishes bone dry with a balanced bitterness. Mouthfeel is moderate in weight, with a soft and lightly tingly carbonation. This is a fine example of a black IPA.
