COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Massive in every way, B-Craft delivers a complex bundle of flavors with citrus-hop aroma. Moving beyond the massive hop aroma, rich roasted malt flavors of coffee and chocolate move forward only to be checked by an impressive hop bitterness. Texture and flavor dance together so seamlessly that you may need to remind yourself that, while it drinks like a session, it delivers like an assassin.

Dark brown with a thin brown crown and minor lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, peaty notes, coffee, caramel, light smoke and faint citrus. Taste of chocolate, citrus, peat and soy sauce with a mild bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours black with off white head. Nose/taste of resin, pine, cocoa, chocolate malt and dank citrus. A bit chalky. Medium body. Finishes with lots of pine/resin.

kaser (4078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Dark black pour from the bottle. Spicy oily smell. Vanilla notes, hoppy and creamy. More like a stout than IPA. But good shit

12 oz bottle. Pours a solid black with a thin head. Aroma is full of that of hops which is to be expected for an ipa. Hops are in the forefront in taste as well, but not overly bitter. I'm not too experienced in double ipas but this went down very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wxman (1575) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Pours a nearly opaque, clear dark cola color. Rather thick robust pale tan head with good retension. Aroma of sweet pink grapefruit. Taste is roasted malt, sweet burnt caramel, espresso and moderate bitterness. Very well balanced and smooth in texture. Some alcohol warmth evident after the swallow.

Tonkun (1161) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle. Back (but not pitch black) pour with a nice half and inch head. Coffee and licorice initially with citrus, spice, grass and floral aroma. Well balanced and not overwhelming but complex yet easy to approach. Very nice

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2012
A pleasant surprise! The aroma is well balanced. You can tell that the hops are there in force but the milk chocolate and coffee in the nose keep you grounded. Likewise, the flavor is quite well balanced and extremely complex for an IPA. Much controversy over Black IPAs, but this one does it right.

strongpieman (1595) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with some hops. Smooth and rich, good combination of styles.

Smitty1994 (27) - Portage, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Hands down one of my top 10 favorite beers. Complex citrus, hop and malt blend of flavors. All around great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strykzone (5532) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2012
12 ounce bottle bought on a trip to Michigan. Black with red notes and a one finger tan head. A layer of lacing remains. This is not fresh. The aroma is rich malts. Those are tasted and are roasted. The hops might have faded some. They are not big. Orange is tasted along with grass. A bit of cocoa. Hops are citrus and mildly bitter. A nice feel. An interesting beer and a complex one. Nicely done.
