Pitch black with a great beige head and good lacing.
Smells and tastes like a sweet stout rather than the interesting hoppy/roast mix of the best black IPAs. Lots of chocolate with a decent dose of roast on the back end. Hops are more of an accent and really blend with the sweet malts rather than pop out of the glass with their own flavor.
Given the great flavor of Loose Cannon, I'm disappointed. I'd love this flavor with Loose Cannon hops.
Still, it's a good beer.

Pint at Alewife in Baltimore. From notes.
A - Black pour with two fingers of brown head. Wicked lace all around and a finger of retention. Good lookin' pint.
S - Roast, mild. Virtually nothing there.
T - Earthy hops, roast, vanilla, dark fruit. Mild overall. Not a ton of hop character.
M - Decent carbonation, medium to full body, good carbonation.
O/D - Meh. Plain overall. I wouldn't revisit this. Seemed really tame and not too drinkable b/c it was fairly boring. A fairly uninteresting beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours black, true to its name. No light gets through. There's a short lasting head that lasts a bit around the circumference and leaves some lacing. The aroma is rich and intriguing, with both a strong citrus hops aroma and big dark roast malts. The taste matches quite closely. The feel is a little thinner, leaning towards the Schwartz-bier side of the house. All in all, though, this is a great black IPA.
