12 oz can into tulip.
A: very very dark brown. im not calling this black. a lot of sediment is sitting on the bottom of my glass. looks like this puppy was can-conditioned. hoping for some better head retention/lacing.
S: aroma that melds citrical, fruity american hops with a definitive chocolate. the sweetness from the malt that surrounds the hoppy aroma is very pleasant.
T: a very bitter body on this brew. i would actually say this bitterness is more from the hops than the malt. a roasted bitterness makes its presence known more towards the end. finish is sweet and chocolate-y.
M: carbonation closer to the mellow side than average. medium body.
D: this is one of those styles that has both bodies and ABV's littered all over the spectrum. i like how this one is on the "lighter" side but still offers a flavorful palate. a good, drinkable ABA.

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.
