Picked up a bomber of this at the Mondial Bier Fest in Strasbourg, France. Deep, dark mahogany, almost black pour with two finger head, with good retention and lacing. Roasty, herbal nose nicely balanced with hints of pine, caramel, espresso, and chocolate. The taste follows suit with with toasty, malty, toffee and resiny pine with hints of caramel, burnt espresso, molasses and a touch of chocolate. The mouthfeel is not as thick and chewy as most of the black IPA's I've had, but it's smooth with a nice bitter, dry finish. The drinkability is off the charts! I'm kicking myself for not buying more of these! This was my first experience with Blue Point, and I enjoyed everything from them that I tasted at the fest. Hopefully they'll be back next year so I can stock up!
