COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knuckles on the felt. Hit me. Dealer sends another -- a SEVEN with a Jack in the center. Jeff Kuhnie must have rigged the deck. Warrior, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops lend ample bitterness to this roasty Black Double IPA. SEVEN reminds us of a chocolate orange. Oh, it’s a Cascadian dark ale? Whatever you say, Buster.

Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Pine and grapefruit hop nose, big roasted malt, some toast, and chocolate. Hints of toffee and sweet fruit. The flavor has sort of a bitter chocolate orange thing going on. Grapefruit, pine, and lots of roast. Cocoa powder, toast, and toffee sweetness.

Sammy (9279) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Americo’s bottle. Great hoppy aroma. Very dark brown with a creamy head. Very roasty, with chocolate malt, and citrus hop finish. A touch of smoke. A story in roast.

22oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Batch 121. Dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Nice chocolate, light herbal spice in the nose. Earthy hops. Bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation. More dry finish. Chocolate, light herbal, earthy hop aroma. Sweeter taste, light zest, little chocolatey sweetness in the finish. Moderate bitter overall, dig that. 8.5% works well with the flavor. Solid stuff.

Bottle. Black IPA, imperial porter, hoppy stout??? Whatever it is this was real nice. Chocolate and roastiness. Piney bitterness. Very balanced hops and roasted maltiness full bodied and full flavored. Very nice

22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma has some roasted malt, dark chocolate,citrus, herbal and resiny hops. The flavor has a strong roasted malt and dark chocolate base; hops are resiny, citrus and earthy. Seems more like a porter they top hopped, but still decent overall.

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in tulip: Basically very deep brown with an initially fluffy off-white head, very good lacing. The aroma has notes of lightly citric and tropical fruity hops, a bit catty, oniony and grassy too. The malt smell of roast, coffee, burnt bread and a touch of powered chocolate. The taste is moderately hoppy and fruity with a fair amount of ashy char tones. Wished that there was not a plastic-y note around the edges however. The mouth feel is lively and aggressive, as noted above ashy and charred finish. A solid Black DIPA but something just does not hit on all cylinders to be almost my favorites of the genre.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Beerpig317). Looks good; a dark and fairly opaque cola with off-white lacing. Smells solid; bitter hops and dark malt with some roast and booziness. Tastes like it smells with a nice hop presence, only not as bitter, with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.
