12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours near black with a decent head that has some legs and leaves bands of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: as expected hops, an an IPA level, with some sweet and dark malts.
Flavor: about equal mix of dark and very dark roasted grains and earthy/herbal hops. Medium bitterness. Both hops anddark roast linger on and on in the aftertaste.

O: fairly easy drinking and tame black IPA, yet flavorful, as the malts and hops partly neutralize each other.
