For me, the right mix of sweetness, hops and aroma. Head okay, but other factors more impressive.

Pours just a touch more red than black. Nice head forms and remains for minutes.

Nose and flavor are right in line - burned caramel, molasses, and dark malt come through huge with a solid hop component. Really nice black IPA.

A - jet black. Head quickly dissipated with little lacing.

S - big hop character up front, with a little mellow malt and citrus

T - mellows out to a porter-type taste - roasted coffee, burnt chocolate, citrus hops. leaves a nice bitterness with chocolate and hops

M - very drinkable; not too thick

O - can't have too many, but one of the best offerings from Big Boss
