really intense black ipa from true. it pours an impossibly dense black color, more like a stout than a black ale, with a tan head thats all lace, good retention. the nose is super bitter and hoppy, both burnt grains and high alpha hops contribute to this, but the hops are first. the flavor is similar, really dark roast on the malt profile and all the bitter you care to experience in the finish. the flavor is pretty on par with the genre as a whole, but the mouthfeel is something else entirely. huge huge huge body, massively filling and thick. it is unexpected to say the least, but it is not unpleasant. it prevents drinkability for sure, but the beer remains smooth and luxurious. i had two, and that was all i could take. like all the beers here, its distinct, and i like that.

edit: there is now this cool sweet middle to it that i dont remember before, seems to have evolved a little bit over time. caramels and smoothness define that middle space, and some of the roasted bitterness has dropped out. they have obviously fine tuned this one. just delicious.
