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.

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

On tap at the brewery - into pint glass.
Pours a jet black - little head, little lacing.
Nice hop aroma; mixed with roasted malts.
Taste is of smooth roasted malty hops. Ever so slight coffee flavor...
Overall, nice Black IPA. Nice flavor, nice aroma, nice balanced and well executed overall brew. Not worth driving to kingston for, but worth a try if you ever see it.
