Oakes (13140) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Med brown and hazy, choc aroma with minty hops, a bit creamy and with lots of bitterness and toast, good balance, fairly standard, you can tell it’s a touch stronger than most.

Black color. Intense aroma, roasted malts, chocolate, fruity hops. Full bodied, coffee and roasted malt flavor, a bit ashy, with light residual sweetness, followed by extreme resiny hopping. Still some harsh roastiness in the final, but it doesn’t spoil the rest.

tiong (4281) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Draught @ APEX, Portland, OR

Pours pitch black with a foamy white head. Aroma of roasty malts, grassy hops, nuts, citrus and lemon. Taste is smooth, roasty and hoppy with notes of grass, citrus and nuts. Finish is roasty, grassy and bitter with some nutty notes. Quite stoaty for a black IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 Nice goblet on tap tonight at Bittercreek.. Black brew only reveals crystal clear garnet highlites when held to a nearby bulb... long lasting lite tan head with good lacing. Fruity citrus hoppiness with some background lite roast coffee.. hints of cocoa. Flavor mirrors the nose with a pronounced bitterness... more citrus hops than the aroma... and again some nice albeit minor roasty elements... great body.

Prufrockstar (1329) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Draft at apex. Dark brown pour, loads of lacing. Aroma: dank, pine, and cat pee/litter box. Taste: nicely balanced, with great pine, hop bitter finish. Some chocolate there, but subdued - leans more toward the ipa side than the darker side here, but delicious nonetheless - think wookey jack. Medium body. Pretty drinkable, even given the 7.8% abv.

Jun 13 update: woohoo, Barley Brown’s in Washington! From the growler this time. Not much new to add to the previous rating - resinous, dank, earthy; roasty, unsweetened chocolate with a great bitter finish that also brings some serious citrus to the table. Well-balanced and delicious. Totally gets a rating bump from 3.7 to 3.9
