poured from a 22oz bottle into snifter. Bottled 11/29/13.

A - Obsidian, like staring into the abyss black. Nice 2 finger tan head and some beautiful webbed lacing.

S - Roasty dark malts with a light note of burnt chocolate. Even at 13 months old I pick up the citrus hops in the aroma.

T - Starts off with sweet malts and moves into muted hoppy flavors of citrus, pine, and earthy tones. They yield to the darker roasty malts on the palette along with bitter chocolate and some sweet caramel. The bitterness and hops complete the finish.

M - Medium and creamy mouthfeel with very nice carbonation.

O - Now that I have had this (although not fresh) it really is comparable to Karben4 Silk Scorpion. Both are fantastic black IPAs!
