Pours two fingers of head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is pine, roasted malt and a bit of chocolate.
The taste has a solid bitterness throughout, a stronger sweet note in the middle and a mild bitter finish.
The texture softer.
Great aroma and nice flavor.

Didn't know what to expect with this one. Was very surprised and really liked it. Poured into a tall glass and the head was huge and chocolaty. It stuck around for quite awhile and when I drank it, it exploded with a malty, deep taste. Got surprised with a strange, but cool aftertaste. Twisted Pines Brewery has a fan with me and I look forward to trying some more when I'm back in Colorado.

22 oz. bomber.

pours out an opaque reddish tinged brown colour with an gigantic dark tan head which has some serious retention and lace. a smoky, resiny, perfume aroma provides a treat for the nose. the taste profile leans heavily on the dark roasted malts. chewy nougat and caramel, with some cocoa and iced coffee notes. i can swear i can detect lactic. the hopping is splendid. just the right amount of tea like juiciness makes for a great balance, while bittering is confined to just a kiss on the back end. i'm really digging the balance and juiciness of this one. medium bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel...no coarseness and tongue numbing bitterness. excellent drinkability with just a hint of the ABV.

overall this black IPA is one of the better ones i've tried. it has a milk stout quality to it that is hard to describe. really a luscious brew. highly recommended.
