Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Acquired in a trade with gwdavis.

A- Pours a deep brown body with cherry highlights. The head is 2 fingers and off white, leaving some uniform lacing.

S- Not very potent.. the hops are resinous and piney, some dark malt in there. Very subtle. Had to strain.

T- Upfront I get some sweet dark malt, particularly toffee and caramel. This develops into subtle piney, resinous hops. The finish is slightly roasty with some vanilla.

M- Easy drinker, slightly watery though. Medium-low carbonation.

A fairly executed black IPA. Not awesome but not bad. I could throw a few of these back.

A-pours chestnut brown with three fingers worth of light tan head

S-citrus and piney hops with a bit of caramel malt

T-taste is somewhat sweeter than I expected from the smell with a heavy backbone of caramel malt and a mild amount of citrus hops

M-medium body, very smooth, mild carbonation

Overall not the most exciting beer, but still good tasting and easy to drink
