Pours dark in color. Nearly black, but not quite. Smells of roasted malts with some citrus and pine included. It's taste follows the nose quite well. Strong roasted malt characteristics followed by notes of more pine and light citrus, just enough to keep it interesting. Medium bodied. Relatively smooth.

On tap. Look is black and opaque. Not much in the smell, maybe light roasty malts. Taste is similarly empty, a bit of toasted malt, slight hop bitterness. Decent entry black ale I suppose. Feel is a bit thin, carb a touch low. Overall not great

Black with a great lacing tan head and sticky lacing. Piney citrus toasty scent, makes me think it's a black ipa. Toasty bitter hop malt taste with a lot of earthy notes to it. Medium body with light carbonation, creamy. Great black ale with a good amount of hops.

Appearance: Arrives fudge colored with a frothy tan head; great retention and plenty of lacing

Smell: Earthy and very roasty, almost burnt, aromatics; piney and citrusy, as well

Taste: Burnt malt tones forward, with a building pine and citrus flavors through the middle; after the swallow, the bitterness builds to an overwhelming level

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A rather unbalanced beer, with very strong burnt and bitter tones

Color me impressed. Pours a pure black with a thick caramel color head. Smell is of chocolate with some faint hop aroma. Taste is fantastic. Rich malts, coffee, chocolate, and then some dark fruit. Also some lighter fruits from the hops. Perfectly balanced. Mouthfeel is thick which may not be right for style. More like a hoppy stout. I'll take it though because it's delicious!
