Stone/BrewDog collaboration black IPA. I've been holding on to a bottle of this for a while now and decided to break it out.

Appearance is quite black, with a decent amount of dark tan head still after aging. The smell is nicely hoppy. Piney with some dark malt too. Now the taste is where I usually am not a big fan of black IPA's, but bashah has won me over. The dark malt is integrated with the bold hop flavor without the astringency or sourness that I often note in black IPA's. Bold, but very drinkable. The mouthfeel is smooth, dry at the finish and with nice body.

Overall, this has been the best black IPA I have tried and a very solid brew.

A casualty of the back of the unlit beer fridge ...

Dark black pour with just a hint of red tint. 1 finger of medium cream head. Light retention and faint fingers of lace.

Nose is very nice. Vanilla cream, dark chocolate, roast malt, and a hint of coffee all blend together.

Vanilla bean, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, just a hint of dried fruit, and a shot of grapefruit hops round out the taste. Complex and well done.

Feel matches the flavor profile. Smooth and creamy, almost stout-like.

And I found one more in the back of the fridge ...
