Beer Type: American Black Ale - 7.60% ABVAppearance: 12 oz brown bottle with a Greenbush style label. Beer poured a dark and deep black/brown color with just a little bit of off-white head.Smell: Not a big nose here. A bit of dark malt and a hint of chocolate and coffee.First Drink: Roasted malt and caramel flavors give way to some chocolate and a hint of sour citrus.Mouthfeel: Nice crisp finish with a creamy medium body.Last Drink: A bit more citrus and pine from the hops coming through on the finish and more dark chocolate flavors coming from the malt up front.Drinkability: Pretty darn good for a black IPA styled beer.Notes: Had this on tap aged in an oak cask and it was miles beyond this bottled version. Still this is pretty damn good!Verdict: 4 out of 5. Good balance and a nice blend of dark beer and IPA styles.
