Dracula's Bite (Evil Czech)

This Black IPA was a nice way to end a series of Evil Czech pours. This was the third from the tap at Catch-22 in Merrillville. It was a very comfortable spot to share some fried cheese curds and grilled flatbread topped with turkey, lettuce, and cheese. This brew was dessert. The sun was down and the patio was getting chilly.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark brown brew had a creamy tan head. It stuck around. I couldn't smell much with everything going on around me. The hop oils left thick lacing as I drank this down.

Taste: It was a little sweet, creamy, with a slight roast. The hop bitterness gave it a nice bite (deserving of the name).

From the Evil Czech site:
IPA’s evil twin; they share so many characteristics, but have a few profound differences. Black and funky like Shaft, with a khaki head, this brew features Warrior hops from Washington state which give it a moderate hoppiness and bitterness. The finish isn’t like any IPA you’ve tried before; the smoothness and lingering flavor stick with you.
