Draft at Smith Commons and The Black Squirrel. Poured a deep black that made it look like a stout. Great balance between the hops and roasted malt, especially with the Chinook hops providing a touch of smokiness as well.

12 oz can shared by DCLawyer, thanks Jason! Canned in February 2016. Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of roasty notes, licorice, light cocoa. Tastes of light floral notes, malt, roasty notes, licorice, light hops. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty good, not as hoppy as most other black IPAs though.

Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Very dark brown with tan head. Malty piney aroma. Flavor is malty and roasty up front. Finish is spicy (a bit like a rye), piney and grapefruit. Very nice thanks Steve! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Dark brown, almost black body with a small frothy head. Nose is mostly roast and chocolate with some moderate citrusy hops. More IPA than porter though in flavor. Bright citrusy hops, chocolate and roast follow, lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent, not the brightest though.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2015
4oz draft at Churchkey. Pours out like a porter with a thick brown head and nice lacing. The aroma is spicy hops and some syrupy malt. Big bold malty and bitter flavor with a kick of coffee and booze in the finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (7627) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Comes together well, and leans more on the roasty side than the hoppy side. In other words more of a stout than an IPA. Pours black with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish with a touch of sweetness. Some dark chocolate. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown.

jgb9348 (5684) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Deep dark brown body with a very rich dense tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol and a very bright and pungent grapefruity hop nose. Medium-bodied; Dense roasted malt flavour up front with a good hop bitterness and a solid sweetness from caramel and toffee right behind. Aftertaste shows a pleasant earthiness and roasted set of flavours with a balanced and quite pungent (to cut through the roastiness) hop bitterness. Overall, a very well done Black IPA and one that I’m happy came from my city - definitely worth a try if you can find it at all! I sampled this on draught at Founding Farmers in Washington (Washington Circle) DC on 14-September-2013 for US$7.00 / pint.
