3.71/5 rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Arrives with the fudge brown liquid being capped by an inch of tan foam; leaves some patchy lace around the pint glass
Smell: Roasty and sweet malts, with piney hops in the back
Taste: Roasty malts dominate the front end, with sweeter caramel and chocolate building in the middle; after the swallow, the piney hops build though there is a metallic edge in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Although the hop bill grew on me half way through, this is just a middling example of the style
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, some chocolate and some hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, chocolate and maple which make this beer seem more like a brown IPA than a black one. The hops presence is mild for the style. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean for the style.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, not the best representation style, it’s a good beer but it certainly does not seem like a “Black IPA”.
Serving type: can
