The legendary BA aasher sent me this as part of a recent birthday beer package. Proclaimed a "New Orleans-Style Black India Pale Ale" on the label, I wonder if Al knows my girlfriend if from New Orleans. Would have loved to share it with her on my birthday but that's not quite how things worked out.

Pouring into a 3 Floyds pint glass, it's a dark brown/mohagany in color with a dense 2-3 finger medium tan foam. Retention and lacing are present. Nice woody and stone fruit aromatics. Toasty malt backbone with a touch of chocolate. Resiny hops, firm bitterness.

Thanks again to Al for sending this one out. The birthday week is coming to a close shortly but this was another nice addition to the agenda and definitely hits the spot tonight.

Served in a large wine glass.

Finishing the night off with a strong black IPA from the Floyds. And it's not Toxic Revolution. Shots fired. Anyway, this stuff pours a dark black-sienna topped by a finger of dirty cream foam. The nose comprises heavy leek, light roasted malts, and some light pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, but luckily the roast o'erpowers the leek character, though not enough to rid the world of it entirely. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I guess this could've been a nice black IPA had it been brewed with different hops, but the leek here just ruins things for me.
