A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short off white head that died down, leaving lacy patches of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with notes of roasted malts and hints of licorice.
T: The taste is similar to the smell. No sweetness is detectable and there are some slight hints of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with some slight hints of smoothness and a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like a blend between an American Black Ale and an American Stout, with the black IPA flavors being stronger. It's easier to drink, but I think I would have liked this more if the stout flavors were a little stronger.

A: Pours a clear yet opaque very dark amber (almost jet black) in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some dark cola brown + ruby highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall light tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light amounts of roasted malts with a light amount of anise/licorice. There is just a faint hint of pine hops.

T: Moderate flavors of roasted and just slightly burnt malts along with some very light hints of chocolate. There are some light notes of pine hops as well. There is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and lightly creamy.

O: This is a pretty good black and tan but somehow the style never really seems to be as good as the sum of the different beers being blended - something gets lost.

Bottle to tulip, pours dark brown with a small kahki head. My first black and tan (other than Yuengling). I am assuming this bottle is a little older than is optimal, but that's OK. Aroma is really interesting. Pine and citrus up front with string sweet roasted malt notes and hints of chocolate and molasses. Flavor is big sweet notes, followed by lingering roast. Only a bit of bitter pine, and it is just a bit overly sweet, but not undrinkable. Medium slick mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. Cool beer.
