3.84/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is very rich black with a tan head that fades and nice lacing.

Nose is dusty with dark chocolate, dried goji berry, sweet cream, and light alcohol.

Taste is hop forward with heavy alcohol bite. Sweet malt below and toffee.

Mouthfeel has a lot of carbonation, clean except for some oil slickness and alcohol finish that lasts.

Overall: cool, different take on a black ipa.

Purchased during MLB All Star Week 2015 at Root Cellar in Cincinnati, Ohio. Enjoyed August 18, 2016 in a Mad Tree tulip/snifter.

Look - Less than a finger tan head. Oily black. Head settles to nothing. Blotchy lacing. Medium bubbles.

Smell - Hop. Bubblegum. Coffee. Cigar. Burnt. Traditional black IPA.

Taste - Closer to hoppy porter. Coffee. Char. Malt. Not as hoppy as expected. Bubblegum.

Feel - Chewy. Medium to heavy. Carbonation not overpowering.

Overall - Not a Black IPA. It is a good hoppy porter/stout.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

33cl bottle (purchased for the low, low price of $5) with no visible date into a Teku at fridge temp.

Look: pours chunky for the last 4oz, very dark brown, luscious light brown head that dissipates to a ring in a minute.

Smell: stale coffee, grassy/piney hops, harsh metallic note.

Taste: strong chocolate up front, coffee, green pepper, lemongrass, pine, oak.

Feel: light-to-medium silky body, light carb, ends somewhat dry.

Overall: this is one of those rare beers with a taste that's much better than the nose. The taste has a lot of complexity and depth, and develops as it warms.

11.2 FL OZ bottle
Served in a snifter

It pours like used motor oil into my glass. It is jet black and topped with a little of an inch of mocha head that leaves little lacing.

Dark roasted aromas arise from my glass. Anise, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and coffee are in the mix.

The taste has elements of all the aforementioned smells. The anise is less is the taste. The coffee and chocolate along with some roasted malt are the primary flavors. There is more bitterness in this than a standard stout.

Thick, viscous, chewy mouthfeel

This beer drinks like a hoppy stout. The mouthfeel is amazing. The taste and smell have some anise which is not a favorite of mine. Other than that a pretty good beer.

From notes on 5/29. Didn’t really care for the smell. To me, it smelled like dirt. Really through my experience off. Had a nice thick black body. Awesome coffee taste. The smell though, I just couldn’t get past it.
