Oliphant Xenomorphin' Power Strangers Black IPA

Oliphant Xenomorphin' Power Strangers India Black Ale, 6.3% ABV., Oliphant Brewing, Somerset, WI.

Solid blackness, rich cocoa-tinged head above., Looking nice.

Aroma: Creamy cocoa, with earthy espresso hints, as well. Grassy hop notes arise. Citrus tones interject into the chocolate. Beautiful blend.

In the mouth: Big malt, rich chocolate, cocoa, espresso. Deep and dark and delicious. Bittersweet. Full bodied, full malt, big hops. Bitterness keep continual combat with malt sweetness. And I can dig it. Mmmm. This is the Black Ale/India Black Ale/ Black IPA that I can get down with.
