The appearance was a black color with a bar pour’s kind of head (rating adjusted accordingly). The smell had some roasty chocolatey malts with some coffee beans. There’s a nice sweet chocolatey aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs good as a Porter. I’d have again, good stuff, but not a Black IPA.

Sample glass at Growler Garage. They had it labeled as a black IPA and I see its labeled as one on Beer Advocate. I think the bar and beer advocate has it wrong, anyways, here’s the rest. The appearance was a black color with a bar pour’s kind of head (rating adjusted accordingly). The smell had some roasty chocolatey malts with some coffee beans, hops, what hops, there's no hops here. There’s a nice sweet chocolatey aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs good as a Porter. Bitterness is barely there to hit my tongue. I’d have again, good stuff, but not a Black IPA.
