12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- Deep brown and turbid. Light brown head is dense. Nearly creamy. Retains decently.

S- Roast, subtle dark chocolate. Some earthy hop, a little resin.

T- Very similar to aroma. I think the rye comes out in the flavor. A bit of a spice character. Hops not as much. Just a faint earthy bitterness.

M- Medium body with a roasty bittersweet finish. The hops attribute just slightly to that.

O- Hop character just isn't as high as it should be. This borders a rye porter. The malt is in the spotlight here, and it shouldn't be.

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.
