Pour: On draft at The Jeffery in NYC. Poured in to a tulip glass. Appearance: Black. Thin off color head which reduces quickly. Lacing present on the sides of the glass. Aroma: Resin-like and earthy notes. Very mellow and approachable. Taste: Roasted coffee notes. Subtle hops and earthy like flavors are present. Aftertaste: slightly burnt coffee on the back end. Overall: Easy drinking and pretty straight forward. Good. 3.31 out of 5.

Micro Review: I've only had a handful of CDAs / Black IPAs and this one struck me as a little more malty than some with a noticeable chocolate presence. Combined with the cirtusy hops it made me thing of a chocolate orange smashed into an IPA. Quite tasty and very drinkable. Was less than 2 months old, and it tasted like a hoppy stout to me. :)

Got in a trade with my friend Eric.
A- Pours black with a small tan head that settles to a nice cap.
S - Smells like an IPA, all piney and citrusy.
T - These black ales are always difficult for me to describe. This is a little smokey, a little sweet and a little hoppy. Well balanced combination of flavors.
M - Medium mouth feel, a little creamy, med-low carbonation.
O - This is quite good and very drinkable.
