on tap at the dutch during lunch with buddies.
Pours a jet black with ruby on the edges, small off white head with fair retention. lacing clings to the side of the glass a bit. Nose with fairly bland, hints of roast and chocolate. Taste is roast and hint of chocolate. Cutting bitterness but not much hop flavor. Mouth is dry, chewy, and astringent. Tough to swallow one, yet alone two (sorry coldbrewky.)
Serving type: bottle

On tap at the Lark in East Northport, NY: pours black color with brown around the edges, it had a creamy 1 finger tan head that faded slowly and left decent creamy lacing.
Smells of chocolate malt, caramel, cocoa powder, charcoal, floral hops, piney hops, lemon zest and peat moss; very nice combo of roasted malts and hops for nice balance.
Tastes of chocolate malt, burnt grains, caramel, cocoa powder, burnt wood or charcoal, floral hops, dark fruit, piney hops, lemon zest, citrus hops, light grapefruit and peat moss; trails off bitter with a chocolate flavor that's got lemon zest and shows decent balance even though the malts are very strong.
Mouthfeel is crisp and zesty, with a medium chewy body, average carbonation and a bitter finish. A very nice black IPA that leans more on the stout or porter side, but is still highly drinkable.
A very solid beer with enough malt and hops in it to keep it interesting and flavorful. I was at the bar with a bunch of people and 4 of had an enjoyed this beer so much that we all had seconds.
