12 oz bottle poured into a Tulip.
A- It was very dark. Black was an appropriate name. The head was very thin and off white.
S- Either my allergies were acting up or this beer didn't have much smell. For something to be called and IPA I would imagine more hops in the nose. Instead I got a whiff of mocha.
T - Once again, I think the IPA on their label is a misnomer, and it is in the correct category here. It was not too bitter, but had a nice chocolaty coffee malt. Very toasty and smooth with no big hops. The malt is definitely in the forefront, and the hops take a back seat.
M - It was easy on the tongue. Low carbonation made it very palatable, and it went down smoothly. No lingering bitterness or taste of alcohol.
D - It was smooth and good. I could down a few of these easily.

Poured from a bottle into a chalice glass.
Appearance - Mine eyes be deceiving me! This looks like a porter/stout. If you were to tell me this was an IPA I would giggle at you profusely. I will be the first to admit that I do not have a lot of experience with Black IPAs, but this looks good. Very dark in color, tannish head.
Smell - a very earth smell, a mix of hops, grass, and a bit of a floral sweetness right at the beginning of the sniff.
Taste - a beautiful blend of hoppy bitterness and malty roastiness. I really enjoy this beer as so many IPAs focus on crushing your palate with hops at this point in time, this does not do that.
Mouthfeel - bueno
Overall - a really nice beer from Heavy Seas. I would drink it again, and probably recommend it as a try for friends.
