Bottle to tulip glass. "Hoppy Beers don't age well" be damned. After recently purchasing, I realized the bottling date was 03/10/15, and the label says drink within 90 days. Oh well, but while preparing for disaster, I quickly realized this was still a good beer and maybe better than fresh, at least in my eyes.

LOOK: dark black, small tan head that fades to lacing.

AROMA: Fighting a cold, so maybe just not getting everything. Nice toasty aroma, not strong but nice. Roasted malt with May be a touch of coffee.

TASTE: buttered pumpernickel toast, coffee, hint of lemon zest (maybe leftover from the faded hops). Like an espresso Romano.


FEEL: Medium bodied, just enough carbonation to give it some life.

Very nice. I'd like to try fresh someday, but I think I'd be equally happy with a year old bottle or older.

Jet black with a prolific tan froth. Smells of caramel and faint herbal hops. Tastes of slightly toasted malt and more caramel which is quickly covered by a thin layer of herbal hops and finishing with discreet notes dark chocolate. Light in body and dry for the most part. Simple yet good.

The deep color of Coca Cola syrup, this black ale has a malty chocolate aroma. Each sip is layered with light sweetness, back-of-the-palate bitterness from coffee and cocoa pod flavors, married to roasted hops and charred wood. Medium head and rich lacing. Dry finish, nice overall balance. A drinkable and even black ale, very tasty, but not necessarily a must-try in its appeal.

16.9oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pitch black with a one-finger head
S: Loaded with roasted malt/grains, cocoa/coffee and some generic bitter hop notes
T: Matches the nose. Bold roasted/toasted malts and grain up front, a coffee/cocoa midpalate and a slightly bitter finish
M: Full-bodied but from the toast not alcohol; moderately bitter
O: A well made and enjoyable black IPA
