This was the 3rd beer I had with dinner at the brewery - and it wound up being a great choice near the end of the meal, with it's heavy coffee infusion - dark brown with a thin tan head - the smell of hops is mixed with a roasty coffee aroma - coffee leads the flavors here with a pleasant hop finish - thick enough but not cloying on the palette -
very enjoyable - I ordered this not expecting the coffee action, but was pleasantly surprised - good stuff.

A coffee black IPA. Interesting combo!

Pours a deep, dark, basically opaque black. 1 inch head, with very good lacing.

Smells incredibly roasty, with some burnt coffee bean flavors as well. No hop flavors on the nose.

The hops come through stronger in the taste- piney and earthy, and searingly bitter. Intensely roasty malt flavors as well, combined with strong coffee flavors. The coffee tastes a bit like used coffee grounds. Very intense flavors all clashing.

Full, creamy mouthfeel. Not always drinkable, gotta sip this one.

Seems like more like a dry-hopped coffee stout than a Black IPA with coffee added, due to the intense roastiness. All good flavors here, but they clash a little bit, making it not very drinkable.

This beer pours out in a dark black color with a dark brown frothy head.

The aroma just has tons of deep rich espresso coffee, sweet chocolate, roasty sweet malt.

The flavor follows with tons of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. There's then an espresso bean bitterness. It's almost like those espresso edible chocolate beans that they sell.

Then the hops come through with a piney, earthy herbal bitterness.

This was one of the best Peekskill beers I had during my visit. The deep espresso flavors really balance well with that medium gentle body and strong hop bitterness on the end.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a deep black hue with a one finger foamy tan head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured dry coffee grounds with a touch of smoke and faint grassy hop.

The taste was defined by the typical coffee stout characteristics. Perhaps a touch hoppier than your typical stout, but not a black IPA, as indicated on the brewery menu.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty black ale/coffee stout . . . whatever.
