Deep and dark as a starless night, this beer is dominated by a pronounced hop aroma of pine and spruce, with subdued notes of fresh cut wood and special herbs. The flavor is characterized by a clean hop taste with a subtle dry roasted malt touch in the background. Draft only.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2011
In short: A standard fruity/piney black IPA. Good beer.
How: Tap at Sunset Grill, Boston MA
The look: Near black body topped by a small beige head
In long: (24h later, by memory rating). Nose is a bit piney, a bit fruity/grapefruity. Taste is medium roasted, a bit grainy, some dark fruits. Hopping is citrusy and piney. Bitterness is low-medium intensity. By-the-book average black ipa, good beer. I drank this pint in a beer bar immediately after two beer festival sessions and one hotel tasting. No wonder the day after I had a bad case of drunkarrhoea. I call drunkarrhoea the diarrhoea I get after getting drunk, because that saves me a lot of time when I give detailed descriptions of the diarrhoea I get after getting drunk. I have very few friends

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Nose is roasty with earthy floral hops. More roasted malts than hops, comes across almost stouty. Hints of butter come in and out. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. The flavor is roasted malts, lightly bitter floral hops, a little sweetnes here and there. Earthy flavors linger. Lightly dry and resiny. Perhaps a hint of diacetyl in there as well
