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.

I was recently on a vacation with my wife and her family visiting some of her extended family in Virginia and there was a Wegman's located close to the hotel we were staying at so I went in there and grabbed some singles of beers from breweries that I have never seen in Cleveland before (or anywhere else that comes to mind for that matter). This is one of the ones I grabbed. Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours a very dark brown, almost black color that is not letting in any light. Has a creamy, frothy looking tan head that is about 2/3 of an inch thick when first poured. Settles to a good solid 1/3 of an inch thick with nice lacing. Good retention here. Aromas of roasted malts and hints of chocolate and citrus hops. Flavors of roasted caramel malt sweetness mixed with chocolate and roasted coffee bitterness that nicely gives way to some piney and citrusy hop bitterness. Very nice flavor profile here indeed! Has a slightly crisp and prickly, mainly smooth and creamy/frothy, full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Excellent drinkability here! Worth a try for sure!
