      Pouring this one told a story. The head wasn't super big but creamy. The scent off the top was a roasted coffee scent. The carbination wasn't even seen through this beer. It was just a black hole of a beer absorbing every bit of light! The head by this time had went down to just a lacing. The flavor on sip was a nice full roasted flavor. Smoke, coffee and slight chocolate to it but also a fuller body. It really has some bulked up body to this one even though the head didn't show it.
      Delicious is how I would describe this. It's bitter in the roasted sense more then the IBU bitter. It's a extremely dry finish to it. Still it's got so much flavor you can't dislike it. Roasty and full bodied this one is making me glad I can flavor save. Smutty makes a good IPA and now I know they make a good dark beer too! 
Rating: ****1/2
