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.

HonkeyBra (3480) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a big black color with a medium tan head. Aroma of pine, citrus, strong chocolate and roasty malts. Flavor is strong, lots of hop notes, focusing on citrus and pine. Lots of chocolate malt and roast notes as well. Thick, creamy body. Finishes hoppy with a touch of alcohol. Impressive for a new brewery.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2013
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Batch #3. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is bigger oranges and grapefruits with plenty of florals and pines. Chocolate, caramel, and a nice roast backing. Flavor is similar. Juicy oranges and grapefruits with a solid chocolate and caramel malt backing. Florals, resiny pines, and a bit of an herbal note as this finishes dry, bitter, juicy, and a bit roasty. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid Black IPA. Juicy and bitter with a balanced roast and light malt sweetness. Good one.

Not what I expected. Black thicker pour from a 22oz. Sweet cholate and malt aroma. Cocoa taste. Cofee delicious. Really good black IPA

jmagnus87 (2511) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bomber at rbsg. Pours black with a half finger dark brown head. Aroma of roasty chocolate and coffee with loads of orange citrus. Taste follows suit. Roasty to start with citrus on the end. Full bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Another homerun from 18th street.

portableparty (1943) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle at RBSG. Pours brown black with a sudsy khaki head that lasts. Aroma has good citrus piny nose with faint roasted malt. Taste is more bitter hops and roasted chocolate malt to round it out. Palate slick and dry.

rxeight (1465) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bomber into glass. Black pour slight tan head. Aroma is pine and rye hops. Taste has rye ipa, pine and spruce hops, some coffee and a hint of chocolate. Great mix of ipa and stout in this one. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but this is a great black ipa only behing wookey and maybe dubhe.

AWISLguy (1374) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bomber from Dicarlo/Arminetti, batch 121. Pours an opaque black with a foamy tan head leaving nice drops of lace. Aroma has chocolate, grapes, citrus and coal with some pine. Taste is of black patent malts, chocolate, sweet caramel and some bitter citrus (oranges and grapefruit). Medium bodied. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Nice combination with the choco-caramel malts and the citrus. Ultimately could have been smoother and flowed better.

Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is a malt and hoppy blast. The taste is very earthy and has some bitterness in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
