12oz can into a Rock Island snifter.
A: Dark brown with tawny edges, with transparent gold and ruby hues. Lots of off-white head and lace.
S: The nose reveals piney hops and pine sap, with plenty of roasted malt character and a good dose of coffee. Orange peel as well.
T: More coffee; dark, roasted malt bordering on burnt...charcoal? Piney, spicy and herbal/earthy hops with a hint of citrus. A pleasant balance is struck between the hop component and the good dose of roasted barley in this brew.
MF: Lighter/moderate bitterness, stand-fare medium mouthfeel, smooth body, appropriate carbonation.
O: I've had this a few times without reviewing and without any memorable moments, but this time revealed a decent roast & malt-heavy black IPA, if you lean that way. Pleasant drinker for me.

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.
