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.

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.
