Served on tap in a shaker pint at Urban Tavern in San Francisco.
Nice off-white head, that left good lacing. Midnight black that let just a little dark burgundy light through.
Aroma is lot's of coffee roast, with orange and grapefruit peel. This aroma is a big reason I like black IPAs.
Smooth coffee and chocolate roast flavor, with the crisp bright citrus notes are up front. Hop bitterness builds into the pine of a northwest IPA. Again, this is a favorite style, and this beer hit all the marks.
Mouthfeel was caramel-ly in an IPA way, and the roast lingered in the finish.
Paired this with the spicy caggiano beer sausage and pretzel small plate, and it was just great.
I really like most black IPAa, and Black on Black is a great black IPA.
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.
