A: Impenetrable black body. Dense beige head.

S: Bathwater and orange rind hoppiness. Very nice.

T: Dry and slightly smokey. No particularly analogous flavours. As it warms it becomes slightly dank and muddy, which improves it. Has some subtle chocolatey espresso like quality.

M: Slightly too much fizz.

O: Hmm. No quality issues, just not a delicious beer. Nice perfumey hoppy nose but the flavour is dry and boring. Black IPA? Surely it's just a porter. Not the best offering I've had from this brewery.
