A - Pours a nice dark color with a creamy head, roughly 2 fingers in width and leaves a decent lace.

S - Has the aroma of citrus hops with a hint of coffee.

T - The citrus hops are noticed almost immediately. It fades away to a bitter coffee taste.

M - This is a dry beer with moderate-high carbonation.

O - I am not a huge fan of overly hopped up porters, but this one is not bad. For someone who enjoys the strong presence of tangy hops, this would be a good choice.

A- Almost black, a bit a light shines through at the edges, topped with a medium khaki head. The head fades slowly to a ring and leaves some nice lace on the glass.

S- Floral hops and hints of roast malt or coffee. Not a very strong aroma on this one.

T- Citrus hops right away, not overly strong or bitter, this is balanced out by a roasted malt backbone with some mild notes of coffee in it. Finish is dry with a hint of hop bitterness and a final note of coffee.

M- Feels a little thin for me, might be on for the style but I was expecting a little more, carbonation is moderate as well.

O- Decent beer, I'm not a huge fan of hop up porters, but his one is one of the more drinkable ones I've run across, the 6.7% ABV isn't going to wreck you either.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a nonical pint glass in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given the style and brewery. 6.7%. Listed as a "Black IPA" on its label. No bottled on or best before date.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger head of beige-khaki colour, nice cream, nice thickness, and great retention. Decent lacing. Foamy and inviting. Colour is a dark nontransparent black. Perhaps an extremely dark ruby, but I doubt it. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Hoppy, with floral character taming the bitterness. Dark malts form the foundation. Some cream. No real proper porter notes. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Dark malts with some roasted barley. Strangely handled hops ride atop with no distinct character whatsoever. Some cream on the open. Pleasant off-berry malt flavour emerges on the climax and is a highlight of the brew. Balanced strangely, but alright. If this is truly a porter as stated on the website, it's a poor one - but I trust it's a black IPA - albeit an underwhelming one. Some layering but no true subtlety. I like the dark malts. No yeast or alcohol comes through.

Mf: Creamy to an extent, but not horribly so for a porter. Smooth and wet, suiting the style and flavours. Adequately thick. Nicely carbonated. Fairly light on the palate for its depth of flavour.

Dr: Drinkable but far from unique or special. I wouldn't get it again. Hides its ABV nicely. Not Avery's best offering, but a decent one.

My 1,200th beer. I wanted to try this for a while since it's a porter that drinks like a black IPA.

A - Can't knock the look it is a pretty solid dark brown almost black with a 1/2 inch of opaque colored head.

S - As expected it's a nicely hopped up porter with citrus hops and some underlying coffee and roast.

T - Fairly dry (as expected for a porter) and some piney hops mixed with some roast and a semi sweet finish. It's enjoyable but again dry and hoppy.

M - Medium yet dry.

Overall if you like Black IPA's you will like this. It's a shame it's not a touch more sweet to balance the dry hopped goodness.

12 oz bottle into my Central Waters snifter.

Thick khaki colored head stands atop a dark brown base. Reddish-cola colored highlights pop when backlit.

Cocoa powder and hops on the nose with some bark woodiness as well. There's also a lactic milky quality here as well.

Milk and dark chocolate and woody hops. Dirty porter and a drying finish. Body is light and very creamy. Back end is very vegetative and herbal hoppiness that is wrapped up by the black patent malt.

Overall, this drank a bit more like a porter than a Black IPA, which worked just fine for me. An enjoyable, albeit slightly understated, hybrid.
