Poured on tap at Uncle Barry's in Park Slope.

A - Black. Had a nice brown/coffee head about an inch high.

S - For a black IPA, the smell was of pungent hops with a touch of rye. Very interesting.

T - it had a nice pineapple note with a sweet finish from the dark grains.

M - It felt a bit thin but sweet. Excellent.

O - This isn't your typical black IPA as it uses rye. That being said, it finds a fantastic balance between dark grains and citrusy hops. Very well done.

Poured refrigerated from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

Appears black with golden brown at the edges. Possesses a large and tenacious coffee-colored head.

Initially smells like an IPA, but with further inspection, other smells some forth, such as those of of coffee, caramel, hops, fruits, and big malt.

Tastes of roasted coffee and smoked wood. Some hop bitterness, but not nearly as much as in an IPA. Very pleasant after-dinner drink.

medium to full-bodied, low to medium carbonation, reminiscent of a stout.

Overall, an excellent change up from an IPA. Dark and roasted, would go great with BBQ or steak.
