A- Great artwork on the can. Very black, minimal light finding its way through. I got a 2 finger head that lingered for a few minutes before fading to a thin cap on top. Some lacing on the glass.
S- Smells like the cross between an IPA and a stout. I got some citrusy hops and dark malts. Not the kind of aroma that jumps out at you
T- Hop forward that is blurred together with the darker malts. I got some of the citrus from the smell but I feel like the darker malts and some chocolate take priority. Good bitterness that stays with the taste the whole time. Some metallic flavors detract from the other flavors.
M- Not too thin, but not as full as most other dark beers. Moderate carbonation.
O- Not great, but not bad by any means. It's a satisfying beer if you come across some, however there are many other beers I'd rather buy than this.

Had at Bar of Soap Asheville. Served in a pint glass
A- Pours a mostly opaque dark brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before diminishing to a...whoops.
S- Semi-pungent piney hops break out of the glass against a mildly roasty backdrop.
T- Quite bitter with the dark roast accentuating the bitterness and leaving a chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol is certainly present but works well within the construct of the overall flavor profile. Bitterness lingers after a few sips.
M- Oily, thick and somewhat sharp. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- This is probably one of my favorite 21st Amendment beers. A no-nonsense black IPA that brings the hops and roast right into the forefront but, even on a hot day, it goes down nicely.
