Beer review from 5/12/12: pours pitch black color with a lot of brown sediment floating in it and a 1 finger creamy tan head that faded slowly and left very good spotty lacing; looks like a stout.
Smells of roasted malt, grains, coffee, floral hops, cocoa powder and toffee or syrup; overall nose is roasted and malty, devoid of a major hop presence.
Tastes of roasted malt, toasted grains, coffee, vanilla, light floral hops, lemon, herbs, cocoa powder, syrup and brown sugar; a very nice beer, but totally misclassified as this in not an IPA. It's tasty, just not an IPA per the label.
Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation, a medium body and a feel that's on the watery side with a slight bitterness. Overall a good beer, however you want to classify it.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Pours dark black with some off white foam. Slight patchy on top. Roasted coffee smell. Dark chocolate too. Light mild pine-hop taste buried in an espresso malt. More Malt than bitter. Somewhat of a bitter remains, but mild. Some carbonation. Enjoyable.

The beer is very dark brown, has a huge tan head that leaves some lacing, rather small curtains.
Smelling of toast, dark roasted coffee, smoked meat and chocolate.
Starting with burned toast, dark coffee beans, bitter high grade chocolate, a few sprinkles of brown sugar and soy sauce.
Medium high carbonation, rather watery and a medium body, a coarse dry finish.
Well it's black, more than IPA. Miss some body and maybe more sweetness and less bitterness might have been good.

This is spicy from hops, but it falls off quickly, and even though the spice remains, there is kind of this dirty water thing. Then a coffee thing seems to come through. I guess this one is okay, but it lacks cohesion that would put it a cut above the rest.

this beer is definitely underrated here on BA. pours a heady chocolate syrup color with a lot of carbonation. smells like sweet milk chocolate, lots of hops, and smokey burnt malt. flavor is cocoa on the front end with all the hops and roast on the back end. maybe a hint of rye spice in there as well. its balanced and big, but its smooth and drinkable in feel, with a velvet texture and a medium body. overall an excellent late summer beer when the evenings are chilly and a little more oomph is needed. should have higher scores on here.
