On tap into a pint glass
A: Deep black, small off white head. Decent lace.
S: Initially I get a really fresh hop note but that gives way to some darker characteristics (smoke, chocolate).
T: I am glad this is listed here as a black ale instead of an IPA. The hop from the aroma is nearly non existent in the taste. The flavors are still good but not as punchy as I would have wanted from a brew labeled as a "Black IPA". This is a bit like Guinness' evil cousin. Good.
M: Thin but I think that this helps with the drinkability factor.
D: Worth a shot. I would be happy to drink again but certainly wouldn't seek out fervently.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: can
