3.5/5 rDev -5.7%
Tight light tan lacing that tops this nearly pitch black hued brew. Sweet toasted grainy nose with rye spiciness and hop resin. Smooth with a snap of crispness, roasted grain is most noticeable at first sip then the toasty and spicy rye character. Enough hops to be considered an IPA? Was hoping for more.

Pours black with a nice dark brown head that remained at 1/4". Aroma is all roasty brown grains with some rye spice and just a hint of hops. Taste's just like it smells, lots of enjoyable roasted grains with some rye spice but lacks any real hop character. I'd describe this more as a rye brown ale than a BIPA. Enjoyable beer due to the grain selection but not what I thought I was going to get in the hop department. Worth trying if you appreciate a dark beer that has no dark grain astringency.

This reveiw is based on a pint quaffed at Great Lost Bear in Portland, Maine.
The appearance is of a dark black body, a veritable glass of ink, if you will, with a moderate head of vanilla froth. There are subtle whiffs of cocoa powder; the palate receives a dappling of malty hoppiness (oxymoronic?) with a semi-sweet bite on the end. While the body can be described as rather light, there is present a mild resinous density. This is pleasant, but not great. If you seek this style, go for the delicatable Wookey Jack, which I have reveiwed.
