Poured from a growler into a tulip glass.

Pours a dark brown color with 2 fingers of effervescent tan head. Leaves a ton of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of charred leather, chocolate, and piney hops.

The flavor follows the nose. Very charred and smokey without notes of roasted chocolate, caramel, and pine.

The feel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Very soft, smooth and creamy.

Overall, a solid black ale. It's definitely less of a black IPA and more true to the style. It's very roasted and smokey. Not blown away by anything here but it's still well-made.
