COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big beer has a beautiful malt character to accompany the intense hop profile. Plus a hint of roast character.

Thechasm442 (345) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Served in a three floyds pint glass. Pours a very dark brown/black with a thin tan head that disappears. Aroma roasted barley, pine, mild citric hops, and smoked malt. Taste is malty up front, toasted barley, grapefruit, pine, and smokey flavors are there. Medium mouthfeel and alcohol is slightly present. Good beer.

At Fork on Lincoln. Way to easy drinking for the strength. The roasted flavor out battles the hops but the hops leave a reminder at the end of the sip. Nice stuff. Serving: Draft

Onslow (1211) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brew with almost no head. Aroma of coffee, toasted malts, a little citrus hops and hints on ethanol. Taste is modest malt with roasted malt / coffee background, excellent floral and citrus hops flourish, finishing on a hoppy note with some lingering burnt malt. Very nice.

blackflag321 (510) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle pour to shaker. Opaque, dark brown. High ABV nicely muted by the medium body and the flavor. Hop bitterness, malt, coffee and roast flavor are all present in moderation initially, but then seems to overwhelm the palate. Overall a good beer.

Taste is grapefruit and bitterness. An excellent DIPA! Roast is muted in both aroma and taste. Clear black color with medium body.

Corrinado711 (80) - - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a very dark brownish black with a light brown rim of head. Aroma is a malt, sweet berry and plesant. Taste is of malt, roast and short lived with a weak finish of hopps. it seems like the beer is stuck between an Ipa and a stout which might be appealing for some. pretty good beer.

From a bottle, very friendly aromatic perfume for the olfactory. Big black pour. Yezzah, this big black medicine is pumping across my taste buds like a tsunami, wew werweewrwew THERE YOU HAVE IT. one of the nastiest dark beers for a while. Strong bold big business; imagine the best impy stout brewer getting together with the best dipa brewer and put them in a press and wallah. Finish is the same big rude awakening, bleahayahah. Aroma and look keep this from being a total bomb for a lager lover.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany color with a small beige head. The aroma had roasted malts, light citrus notes, light resin, and some berries. The flavor was pretty close to the nose; roasted malts, light citrus and resin with a shot of berry. Finish adds a touch of ash with a lasting bitterness. Interesting enough.

HoppyAlesToYou (157) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Roasted grain, resin, spruce, citrus, molasses, licorice, soy sauce, and raisins find there way via aroma to my nostrils. A firm pour into a snifter does not produce much head, and it dissipates quickly. The taste has a hint of dry white wine, followed by bitterness and a touch of umami. It is a bit light in body and thin for an 8.5% ale, but the long umami tinged finish makes up for that. A fine double black IPA, but not sublime...

Ilikeitalot. Big roast and malt flavor are perfectly balance with the dipa. Very pleasant aroma. One of the more satisfying brews I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
