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

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Dark brown with a fingers worth of tan head. Nice amount of clinging lace.

Smell- Citrusy hop aroma with notes of chocolate and roasted malt.

Taste- Chocolate with a bit of roasted malt at first that is quickly overtaken by a bitter hop flavor. The hops blend in nicely and do not overpower the other flavors.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and crisp. Slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Overall- A nice example of the black IPA style. One of the better ones that I have tried.

Poured into an impy nonic a deep chesnut brown with russet hue,a nice looking half finger light tannish colored head atop.Aromas of dry earty hops and molasses,alot like a porter,faint piney notes as well.To me it's a big hopped up porter with it's dry earthiness and sweetish backbone,on top of the earthiness there is a hefty leafy hoppiness in the finish.I like this beer but it's a hoppy porter alot like alot of the style.Bottled in July 2013.

Very good beer! Poured at a good temperature with a nice, fluffy, foamy, tan head that slowly settled down and some lace. Color is a clear garnet. Aroma is hop, malt, roast, fruit. Flavor's like nose; fairly dry, bitter and carbonic tang up front, with the bit of malt/fruity sweet in back. Body and carbonation good, although there's a little astringency in the finish. Also the finish is quite long, boozy, and resinous.
