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!
