This beer pours a lot like motor oil, which is a good sign for me. The nose has got a nice hop smell to it. It is pitch black, with a nice, dark, foamy head that stuck around for a while. The taste you get a nice hops bite, but it is somewhat mellowed out. It is a very rich Black IPA. Very delicious.

Great dark look with a smell of hops and roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is of an ipa mixed with a stout or porter. This is by far the best black ipa I have had. Stone subliminal self rightious (rip) was my favorite but I like this even more. Being from Michigan I have had the luxury of getting this awesome beer for several years now. For those that are finally getting shorts in the market I highly recommend this if u can find it.
