look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Ordered this "wit" looking for something refreshing on a warmer August night. Knowing nothing of the beer itself, I was surprised to find it black as a Guiness, with a thin head. It started the expectation of the beer to be malty right off the bat.

S - Citrusy, inviting, and light smell. Nothing strong, but indeed a strong contradiction from the expectation given off by the color.

T - Average quality of taste to witbeers, fairly mild citrus with higher than expected hoppiness.

M - Fairly thin, but enough hops and citrus to keep it enjoyable til the end.

Overall - A solid, but not outstanding flavor, however the experience of the black color with the light citrusy taste make it a memorable drinking experience. Well done to Flying Dog to deliver something new and inventive.

A-black with a very thick tan head. Pours with a lot of action. Looks like a stout!

S-smells like a very spicy and hoppy Belgian white! It's a strong and awesome scent

T-comes in with a much more mild but crisp flavor of spice, grains, with just a hint of cocoa. It's quite mild, almost watery. The after-taste is mostly of cocoa with a hint of smoke.

M-quite watery. Very low carbonation.

O-looks and smells awesome. Tastes okay. Feels just off though. Definitely tastes like an experiment more than something they should release in bottles. I expected more flavor for the abv. It's not a terrible drinker though.
