Never heard of this brewery until last night. Had on tap at Bernie's in downtown Waukesha.
A. Dark brown appearance with a really nice tan head that settled to a covering skim that stayed with the beer until the last drop. Laced great too.
S. Like a cross between an Irish Stout and a hoppy pale ale. Dark roasted notes with some piney hops.
T. This beer melds two styles of beers together so well that it almost plays tricks on your mind while drinking it. At times the roasted malt with coffee undertones take center stage. Then a nice wave of citrus hops show through without being overly bitter. Just a cool tasting beer.
M. Lots of creaminess and body without being too heavy tasting.
O. This beer is shockingly good. If Karben4 can churn out other beers of this quality they'll be someone to keep an eye on. This may be the best tasting Black IPA I've had. Well done.

So exited to do the first review for these guys!
A- Pours a dark, cola brown with a nice amount of head and decent lacing
S- Lots of juicy citrusy hops and a touch of dark roasty malts. Smells so good!
T- Wow! Just like the smell but more intense. The hops are insanely citrusy and the coffee taste from the malts is awesome!
M- Prickly carbonation keeps everything clean.
O- One of the best Black Ales I have had. Lookin forward to more fromthese guys
