one of those that got me moving away from 40's a few years ago. hi-grav, flavorful, with rich suggestions of chocolatey biscuit behind a pleasantly bittering hop profile. I wonder what it would be like within a week of bottling - it can in some locations have a low turnover on the shelves.

22oz bomber: this one pours a dark chocolate brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head on it that didn’t linger long. It has a surprisingly lighter nose. Malts, but not much sweetness at all. Perhaps a bit of chocolate roast and pine. It tastes OK, but I’m not sure why they call it a black IPA. Almost no bitterness to it. There is a good malt body, with some chocolate and roasted notes trying to peak thru but no real sweetness either. It needs a whole lot more hops to be in an IPA category. Let’s just call it a very good strong porter.
