Beer Tasting Notes {Dubhe Imperial Black IPA}

Happy IPA Day!  
In honor of this fine day, I present you with tasting notes for a lovely Imperial Black IPA that we drank recently.  Tonight we will be sampling a nice IPA (not sure what; the hubby is on the hunt for something), and I'll share those notes in the next few days.  For now...  Cheers!

Uinta Brewing Company Dubhe Imperial Black IPA
This 9.2% ABV brew pours a deep dark black with a pillowy caramel colored head.  No light shines through this bad boy.  The scent of dark roasty malts mix with prickly piney hops, with a touch of deep dark chocolate and a smidge of alcohol essence hiding at the tips.  The intense sticky, resiny pine hop flavor coats your tongue, and the roasted bitter chocolate malt flavors mix with a slight alcohol warmth to balance the hoppiness.  A very, VERY good Black IPA.  Highly recommended.
