A: dark brown; with a moderate pour, got a 3 finger tan head that receded slowly and unevenly; moderate lacing;

S: caramel malt and roasted grain; a little restrained;

T: mocha that morphed quickly to bittersweet chocolate that morphed quickly to smoky coffee that stayed through the finish; moderate bitterness;

M: sticky; medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: a little too much coffee for me and not enough hop flavor or aroma;

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark brown color with ruby highlights and a thin, filmy, light tan surface coating. Aromas of charcoal, resiny, bitter hops, and some rich, sweet tropical fruit presence. Flavors of roast coffee in the forefront, with a touch of smoke highlighting and a deep, resiny hops presence. Light bodied and effervescent. There are some tangy touches of grapefruit and other tropical fruits at the tail end of the palate. Roasty and bitter aftertaste, with a peppery spicing. Quick, slightly filmy finish. Very strong flavored brew. Very decent.

A - Fairly deep shade of woody brown, almost pitch with a 1/4 inch of opaque colored head.
S - Smells fairly hoppy, maybe a touch faded with a bit of roasted malts and chalky yeasts.
T - A bit more herbal than I expected but fairly balanced. some hoppy bitterness, then roast, then it even sticks to the palate after the sip. No chemical taste which is good. Not bad.
M - Fairly smooth somewhat chewy a great bodied black IPA.
Overall quite a tasty black IPA, worth seeking out!

Pours black with brown edges and a frothy khaki head that settles to a thick cap, leaving lots of soapy lacing. Aromas of bitter roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and strong pine resin and grapefruit hops. Really pleasant smelling Black IPA. Taste is spot-on with the nose, a nice balance between the roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee and the resinous hops. Finish is pleasantly bitter, with contributions from both the chocolate malt and the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly creamy, with a medium body and good carbonation. Overall a really nice Black IPA that holds it's own with some of the top examples of the style.
