Newer beer from the boys down the road at Heavy Seas. 12 oz bottle into a... guess what? Heavy Seas pint glass.
Appearance - Beer poured a deep deep brown with faint ruby highlights. Rather thin, half-finger beige head. Fades quickly into a ring, has a tiny bit of lacing.
Aroma - Some citrus and piney hop. Roasted malts are easily detectable but the aroma as a whole is rather weak.
Taste - Offers a bit of complexity. Roasted malts. Cocoa, toffee and caramel flavors seem to be the more dominate balance. There's a decent balance of sweet/bitter with the citrus and piney hops. Would have liked a little more hops to show through but It's still pretty good. Finishes off with some more bitter coffee and hop flavors.
Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Not the best balance of malts and hops. Definitely leans towards the malty side of things. But not a bad one to try. It's something a little different, if that's what you're looking for.

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.
