Black with brown edges and a dense, bubbly tan blanket on top

Coffee, medium roast coffee, cola, smoked cedar, and a little acidic roasted almond.

Taste is banana nut bread with chocolate chunks dipped in coffee. Yet it's tangy and almost reaches spicy soy sauce, or maybe these are piney hops, but this is not quite a black IPA. Brownie batter comes in as an aftertaste--I daresay that's not a bad thing at all.

Feel is thin to medium body, out of character for a Frog brew, with some tingly carb.

Bottle pour June 2015. It's really weird, because it tastes like a black IPA, but for a Black IPA, it's not bad. Extreme hop character here.

Big rye and cocoa aroma, with some resiny hops.

Big resin flavor, accented by roasty malt and spicy rye notes. Nice chocolate finish. Interesting mix of flavor.

Good offering from Hoppin Frog. Pretty much agree with reviews stating this is a good beer but not on par with D.O.R.I.S or B.O.R.I.S. Good chocolate and rye flavor but nothing incredible. Worth a taste if you have the opportunity but not a must have.
