Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque in the glass with a fine one finger light brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and lightly piney hops, a bit resiny, light cocoa and dark malt. Flavor follows, with citrus hops with light resiny pine notes, a good lightly toasted dark malt body and some slight fruit notes; hint of coffee. Finishes with well balanced malt, hops and fruit. Good creamy body and mouth feel. This bottle appeared to be a bit old, so I opened it with a bit of trepidation. I do think the hops may be a bit reduced, but even so, it is a quite nice, well balanced and tasty black ale. Classic Cascadian Dark Ale profile and would be exceptional with some more fresh resinous hops. Still enjoyed it as is and will watch for a newer bottle, will definitely buy again.

On tap at brews on Washington in Spokane A: black, finger of tan foam, abysmal. Looks appropriate. Rings of lace. (3.5) S: coffee, citrus, resin, oats, robust porter like nose. A little hollow through the middle with soily, dry finish. (3) T: dry and muddled with coffee tones and nutty suggestions. Hops are bitter with some fruity and resiny notes. The juxtaposition of the profiles is a hare off. (3) M: full bodied with a little too much carb. Slick finish. (2.5) O: needs some tweaking, but a decent effort. (3)

Bottle picked up last night at Brewforia... shared with my bro. My share poured into my HotD goblet. Dark tan/lite brown head... beautiful lacing... good retention... the brew is pretty much black.

Nose is huge citrus.... a little bit of tropical fruitiness... Citra???? The roasty notes come swinging too, but this is about the hops aroma... very very nice.

Wow.. the flavor is a big contrast yet compliment... roasty and resinous.. citric and cocoa.. bitter hops up front melt into a completely balanced mix of roasty malts and zesty hops... a little fruitiness mid palate finishes with a nice coffee element and lingering citrus end. :30 second finish easily.

Very balanced... loving this one.

Drinks heavier than 6.7 ABV.. but no EtOH shows... the body is a plus side of medium, but the carbonation is perfect.

Again... loving this one... very very fresh... everything is spot-on.

4/4.5/4.5/4.5/4.5 and I think I may be on the low side. The only "Black IPA" that I've had that is close to this is the brews from Barley Brown.
