Pours a deep brown, close to black with a fluffy two finger off white head. Aroma is straight citrus and tropical fruits. Taste follows with citrus, tropical fruits, and roast malt with chocolate and coffee notes. Mouthfeel is medium and has a bit of a warming booziness. Overall, a pretty darn good black ipa. I would like a bit less bitterness from both hops and malt, but good overall.

Released today. Draught, served in a goblet.

Bartender today was good at filling the glass without running over. Everything served had about 1/4" head, filling the glass with no wasted space and no wasted beer.

The small head was a dark cream with fine bubbles, which soon faded to a wisp, with little lacing. Body was a medium brown, opaque. I expected some sediment, but there was none.

Aroma was weak, a hint of hops. A more refined nose could distinguish the variety.

Taste revealed a caramel-like sweetness and hops, seemingly floral.

Mouthfeel had a noticeable bitterness that remained on the roof and tongue. Pleasant.

Overall - The beer complimented the Banich pizza, a good combination with the spicy meat and sweetness with the hops. The aroma was lacking, something they needc to improve.
