12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Charlie's Beer and Wine in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a smallish, light beige head. Not too terribly much lacing on the descent.
Smell: Roasty, chary, slightly ashen malts with far fainter hints of bitter chocolate, licorice. Lightly leafy hops and some mild, understated citrus hints.
Taste: Coffee-flavored roastiness, a bit chary, with a small helping of dark, bitterish chocolate and oh-so burnt bread crusts. Hint of licorice coming through as it warms a minute or two. Light sweetness. Leafy, faintly citrus hops with sufficient bitterness. Drying, roasty finish with a low, lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied (barely). Medium carbonation.
Overall: Not nearly as hoppy or as bitter as many Black IPA's, but still firmly roasty. A situation I'll face with a brave smile. Even still, it's OK. Just OK.
Serving type: bottle
