Pours a brown black color with a lighter beige head. Ruby highlights when held to a light.

Lots of porter like aroma greet you upon opening. A big roasted malt aroma and chocolates greet you first. The hop nose is very lean here and almost absent. Rye spices mingle well with the roasted malts making for a good smelling beer.

The taste has a lot of roasted malts. It seems to be the dominate taste. Hops and spicy rye malts are very subtle in the taste.

Over the palate the beer has an ashen feel and is quite bitter and dry.

Overall this is a good beer but more porter like then IPA. I say that because I tasted and smelled little in way of hops and more maltiness that comes with porters. Rye spices were lean, and looking back I think it was spot on.
Either way this was still a very good beer that 'd gladly drink more of.

On-tap 10/15/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a short dense beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, roasted malts, floral hops and some chocolate.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character coupled with flavors of coffee, chocolate and rye spices. Then a strong but not over-powering hops presence comes in and creates a good balance for the style. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and clean for the style.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to pound down for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

Serving type: on-tap
