JohnnyJ (4357) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Draft at Stone Bistro. Pour is a dark brown, almost black, with light tan head. Grapefruit and pine. The flavor is hoppy, sweet milk chocolate, and sharp bitterness. Slight roast, but the roast is not central to this beer. Pretty good black IPA.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Enjoyed on tap at the Tap Room. A story of Cascade, emphasizing the hop as opposed to roast. A sipper, as alcohol warming. Piney aroma. Some toothpaste taste, also apple cidery in the finish. 75 IBU Black with lace and some head.

Tap at E! Burger. Rating #21. Dark black with a big tan head and great lacing. Roasty and a little piney in the aroma. Flavor had a little roast, light chocolate and a little booze (but in a good way). (2507)
