Black beer, looks porter viscosity, mild beige head on the top, 1/3". Aroma was moderately hoppy, grassy, not too aromatic, had the porter like roast coming out as well no doubt obscuring the hop aroma a little bit.

Taste, plenty bitter, at times ashy down on the back mouthfeel, grassy up front. Hops just couldn't get out of the earthy realm and into the fruity one. Another c hopped black ipa. Not bad, not worth talking about much either.
