16 ounce pint - $5.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Slowly served up on a busy Saturday night a clearish, very, very dark brown body with a slim, off-white head.
Smell: Aroma smelling of bitter cocoa bars, Maxwell House ground coffee, grapefruit, yellow pine, and light caramel wrapped up with an earthy character.
Taste: An initial rush of roastiness, followed by an expanse of pale malts, more than anticipated. Of the various malt tastes, bittersweet chocolate leads, with lesser tastes of simple coffee and caramel trailing behind. Blend of citrusy, piney hops deliver a moderate amount of bitterness. Maybe a small hint of herbs lurking in there as well. Then, the taste rolls back towards the dark malts, leaving you with a close tasting of chocolate and coffee.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: It's black, it's bitter, but the hop profile, while certainly present, wasn't (thankfully) abrasive and as such, it kind of reminded me of Avery's New World Porter.

12 oz can, enjoy by 7/17/14 poured into an IPA glass.
A - Deep mahogany and crystal clear body with a pinky sized beige head, OK lacing.
S - Burnt charcoal, tree bark and pine needles.
T - Roast and pine bitterness. Accelerated astringency with little to no balancing sweetness.
M - Dry, lingering burnt finish.
O - I don't like this style of beer in most situations, this brew is no exception. I feel that it brings out the least pleasant characteristics of stouts and IPAs without show casing either's redeeming qualities.

First off, I'm loving this trend of craft beers being available in cans. But as for this Black IPA, it's pretty darn tasty. It's not as bitter or hoppy as other IPA's I have had, but still has good flavor. There's a nice malt and heaviness to the beer without being cloying or filling.
