Poured into a Cigar City snifter. Label says Bottled in May 2010.

A- Pours a shoe polish black with a 1/2 inch light tan head that doesn't last too long before receding to a paper-thin ring with a fluff of surface foam in the middle and bordering lace.

S- Hops and spice. Black pepper along with roasty chocolate sweetness.

T- Bold hops at first that give way to heavy malts and a spicy finish. Bitter in the front, sweet in the back. Alcohol is beautifully hidden which is probably due to the aging. Notes of milk chocolate.

M- Luscious and creamy as well as oily from the heavy amount of hops. Medium carbonation has held up well in the bottle.

O- This one was plucked at the perfect time. Well worth the eleven bucks.

Poured this one into a half lite dimpled stein. I poured this brew in quickly and the head produced was dark tan, and about three fingers thick. The body is jet black with some reddish/black tea hues shining through on the edges of the glass.

The aroma is on a milky lactose type of aroma, along with vanilla and fig.
Taste wise it's smoky, a little coffee and vanilla, with a hint of chocolate.

Feels smooth and full in body. A desert in a glass for sure, and a lager unlike I've had before!

Happy to find this in Atlanta a year and a half after it was released

A - Porter dark with 1 finger of head and a tiny bit of lace on the glass

S - Dark malts and dry hops.

T - Starts out like a porter with burnt malts, but then the hops kick in like fire. Very citrusy, exellent!

M - Well carbonated and full body. Very nice mouthfeel

O - An excellent hoppy black ipa. It's technically a black lager, with tons of hops, but it tastes like a good old fashioned black ipa double dry hopped. As good as it gets for this style.
