A-black with a big tan head. I didn't realize this would be a black IPA!

S-very faint scent of spices and hops. Not much here.

T-comes in with a surprisingly bitter flavor of herbs and pumpernickel. Of course I would never pick up pumpernickel if not for the name. If this was a blind tasting, I would've never guessed this to be so black. After-taste of hop resins and herbs.

M-creamy light carbonation with a dry finish

O-it's an okay beer, an okay IPA. I really don't recommend this at all. It's a fun thought to brew a beer based on pumpernickel, and I don't know what I expected but this was just bland overall. Not terrible, but there's always something better to order

Pours a very dark brown color. There is an off white mocha foam. Smells hoppy and bready, but little indication of pumpernickel. In the taste, very doughy and bready as well as bitter. Notes of chocolate and dough are apparent in the taste. Mild bitter from the hops with notes of graefruit, and the doughy flavor from the pumpernickel is quite nice. Medium bodied feel with roasted malt, sweet dough and hop flavor holding on to the finish. Overall, this an enjoyable beer, try it if you see it.

The beer comes quite dark, black, but with a bit of light coming through in the light.

The aroma has herbal, earthy, spicy character. Not a big aroma on this.

The flavor has a bit of spice, rye, a good amount chocolate with the malt, and then it ends with a herbal, woody bitterness.

It’s nice to see a beer that isn’t trying to just be an IPA that is black in color. It has a good rye character along with more earthy hop tons to get that pumpernickel theme going instead of citrus hops.

A good example of the style.

I had this on tap at McGrath's served chilled in a standard pint.

The color is black without any light escaping and sandstone head with fine bead. The smell is slightly peppery with some dark grain in the nose and mild sweetness with gentle fruity yeast ester. The feel is very nicely balanced with some mild sweetness and nice amount of bitterness with a semi-dry finish.

I like the slight bready taste fromthe dark malt with a gentle toasted and mild caramel which leads to the hop flavor which has a slight citrus edge with some good yeast flavor rounding out the tasted with mild alcohol. I was pleased to be able to try this and it is a pretty decent example of the style.
