64oz growler poured into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black, theres a small light brown head that fades really quickly. Nose is sweet and malty, it's got some nice juicy fruity hop notes as well.

Mouthfeel is good, carbonation is a bit low but it's held up well in the growler. There is a grainy taste in it that I get in all Black IPAs, but it's well covered by the fruity hop flavors. Earlier batches smelled much more heady & dank but this has a much more subdued note, it's bitter but not over the top. Very well done.

On tap at Blackback pub. This was poured into at tulip and I just had HF’s James for comparison. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was somewhat there; lightly stringy. The smell had a crisp sharp bitter cocoa bitterness hitting the coffee notes and then some strong citrus and piney bitterness coming in to bring the bitterness a bit up. The taste was mainly the same with a decent dry and bittersweet aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a decent dryness (of a Black IPA) showing its true face and trying to make it "unsessionable." Overall, as a Black IPA, it works.
