I might've entered my rating a little early, as this drink got better over time. Right out of the fridge, the flavors seemed timid and not all that complex. As the beer warmed up, the foretaste seemed more and more "stouty" while the aftertaste developed a hoppier tone. Nice roasted malts up front. Smooth on the tongue. And very pleasant hops in the gullet. Don't confuse this with an Imperial Black but do give it a try... just let it sit a while before you make up your mind.

Based on this beer's name, I was expecting, well, something a bit more hoppy. That's OK though. This beer was still nice to drink. It reminded me more of a brown ale with some nice nutty notes.

Not really my style, so take it for what it's worth. It's a IPL all day, just happens to be black.

It's just not my type. It taste like burnt malt mixed with water. I like duck-rabbit but this was just not one ill have again.

Poured a black body (close enough to black) with minimal head and lace patches.
Aroma is more roasted malts with some caramel and chocolate than hops but both malts and hops are noticeable in aroma.
Malts are in full force as I get a bready, slightly chewy beer with some caramel and chocolate sweetness with a little bit of hoppy dryness that leads to a dry, crisp, slightly bitter finish.
Not a bad beer but one that favors the malts more than the hops.
