This is a pretty tough style to work in, and Two Brothers did a good job with this one, coming up with something unique.

It pours a translucent dark brown with little head or lace. The aroma is wrong, ot not wrong, just different - it smells like a hoppy IPA.

The taste is not like the smell. It tastes more like the style should plus something. It's malty with a clean dry hops finish. The aftertaste is also dry and not what you would expect - not much sweetness.

Overall it is an interesting brewing adventure worth trying.

A-Deep amber/ruby in the glass, not much carbonation or head.

S-slight roasted malt, tad bit of coffee, wheat and earthy hops.

T-A tad too malty for my tastes, roasted malt, some coffee and well, slight earthy hops.

M-Medium bodied, tad creamy, not much carbonation.

O-It was a decent beer but it just wasn't well rounded enough to be very good.

Served in a tumbler at Mundelein Brewfest 2014.

Shuffling over to Two Brothers for another black IPA (of sorts, anyway). This one pours a clear dark sienna topped by a finger of wan khaki foam. The nose comprises cocoa powder, pine resin, light candied orange peel, and a hint of treacle. The taste brings in more of the same, the hops breaking through the roast and treacle fog every now and again with a sharp citrus-y edge. Things don't quite mesh completely, but there isn't much full clashing going on, either. It's a strange place to be. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, a nice enough little beer, though not something I see myself partaking in very much in the future.
