Commercial Description

The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Bask in the “glory”­ of the bright and brassy hops!

    [Best served in a Tulip glass]

    The pour was a murky mahogany brown with a large (2-3 finger) tan creamy head that was mostly lasting, reducing finally to a thick film and a medium collar with some excellent sticky lacing.

    The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, herbal and resin hops with notes of caramel, licorice, citrus (grapefruit), a very mild scent of chocolate and a mild alcohol tinge.

    The taste was a little malty and bitter sweet with hints of licorice and caramel from the onset and finished with a nice bold hoppy taste and had notes of citrus, a bit of smoke and a slight notion of alcohol. The flavor hung around for a really nice long time with a pronounced hoppiness overshadowing everything else at the end.

    Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

    Overall a brew that settled rather nicely on the taste buds, with a good mix of flavors which virtually hides most of the high ABV...

    Poured from 12 oz bottle into an Ommegang 10 year anniversary tulip. Enjoy by ? 2011 (print is faded).

    Appearance: This is a bit of a surprise. I expected something blacker than night. Instead, a dark amber at most. A nice thick, soapy head.

    Smell: Pleasant. Hint of cinnamon. Smells like my idea of a winter beer.

    Taste: Another surprise. I was expecting a much hoppier beer. This is much more balanced and/or maltier than I expected. Tastes of caramel and cinnamon.

    Mouthfeel: This beer is smooth, no doubt about it. Only a slight alcohol bite, which took me a while to even notice.

    Drinkability: This goes down pretty smooth for a fairly high ABV beer.

    Overall: I was expecting something totally different for my first American Black Ale/Black IPA/Cascadian Dark. Instead of black and hoppy, I got amber and smooth - but in the end, I really liked this beer.

    This is an awesome combining of two of my favorite styles of beer. Stout and IPA. Many call this style a Black IPA. It is a must try for all IPA and Stout lovers.
