22oz bomber purchased at the brewery.
A - dark chestnut with ruby hues at the edges when held to a light; nice fluffy ivory head that holds great retentiom
S - faint dark malts & pine, but not much else
T - heavy roasted barley, dark chocolate, caramel, earthy & piny hops
M - fuller body, quite resinous, pleasant carbonation, finishes bitter with roast and pine lingering
O - I had higher hopes for this one for some reason. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but for the price ($8.99), I won't get it again.

Bought a couple bottles on a visit to Half Acre.
Pours black with a creamy 1/2" head. Aroma is subdued. Flavor is smoky with a a little bite. I'm a little surprised how quickly I drank this - very tasting - I'm glad I bought 2 bombers.

Black thinner pour with a small white head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Big chocolate flavor with a small hoppy presence. Much more like a porter than black IPA, but still some hoppyness.
