22 oz bomber pours a near-black color with a few highlights around the edges. Dense cap of brown head. Ok retention and nice lacing.

Nose is more IPA than stout. Lots of pine and citrus, fruit aromas galore. Stout is there with a little bit of roast, but really this smells just like a Black IPA.

Taste is definitely a nice blend of hoppy IPA and roasted stout. Lots of hop flavor and bitterness. This pretty much is a Black IPA. Extreme departure from a traditional Black & Tan…which is ok, cause it is a pretty tasty beer. But being a big fan of a good B&T, this one was actually a bit of a disappointment. Fun to try, but I don’t think I would buy it again.
