look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.5
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.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, brown-to-black coloring with brown highlights around the edges and a thin, filmy, light tan surface coat of head. Aromas of roasted notes, mocha, bitter coffee grounds, and earthy notes. Flavors are roast forward, with more of a coffee backbone leading the charge with bitterness and hints of smoke. Deep, dark chocolate notes, both bitter and rich, build as you drink, and there is a large bitter component into the aftertaste, which is also mostly bitter, but also has a healthy dose of roasted notes. Grainy notes jump in here and there towards the end of the palate, with the rich bitterness typical from rye beers. Light, thin body that does well with all the roasted and bitter notes. The finish is bitter and dry, with a roasted linger. Less IPA than it is CDA and/or Rye, but good nonetheless.
