Smell - slight hoppy notes some sweet fruit sweet malts.

Taste - well balanced mildly hoppy wheat flavor.

Feel - Medium body clean feel.

Overall - A decent beer I might have again.

Thin film (perhaps a third of an inch) of head which drops quickly to a ring clinging to the edges of the glass. Some rocky bubbles persist. Dark brown body, opaque.

Very nice aroma- black, roasted malt with some orange-y hop. Some spice, a little chocolate, dark bread, and raisin become more prominent. Roast actually seems to drop off as the beer warms. Near the end the beer smells like spicy banana bread.

Starts with a chocolate and fruit complement. Hop bitterness and roasted malt kicks in mid-palate, with a little fruity ester (banana, dark fruit) kicking up. Finish provides warmth and a slightly medicinal character. Chocolate and dark fruit eventually become what the beer is mostly about- and it is a nice backbone for occasional flourishes of spice and citrus. Raisin in particular is present to a clearly discernible degree. No strong roast flavors. Medium and agreeable hop bitterness, doesn't overshadow or surrender to the other qualities of the beer.

Alcohol warmth on the end. Medium body.

2014 vintage

12 oz bottle

Near black pour, dark khak cap, leaves decent looking webs of lace

Chocolate malty nose, with some citrus peel

More chocolate along with some minty hops on the palate....not quite getting the "Belgian" qualities here, but that is ok. This is a tasty dark IPA Kinda brew with moderate complexity and character...nothing amazing , but worth a try

Light black in color with a trace of light getting through. A half inch of khaki colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is full of sweet dark malt and piney hops. The taste is a blend of sweet dark malt with chocolate notes and a hint of piney hops. The mouth is smooth and creamy. It's like a milk stout meets black IPA.
