Bottle. Not as good as Racer 5 and doesn't come close to Racer X, but definitely gives black IPAs a good name.

Pours black with a subtle hop aroma. Very roasty body with bitter notes that finishes smooth and creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great dark color and beautiful tan head. This beer looked delicious. The beer was a bit sweet and bitter, maybe a bit too bitter in the finish for me.

Draft @ OBF í12. Solid BIPA with lighter roasted and chocolate flavors then many of the same style...which I like.

Seems to be missing some of the stouty taste. Not amazing but very drinkable. Aaaaaaaa

A bottle pour a few weeks back. Black IPAís are my favorite all around brewing style. This one held its own and was a true delight. I was pleasantly surprised to find some hints of black licorice in there. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Pour BLACK (unsurprisingly) with large and lasting tan head. Aroma is enchanting - Subdued roasted malt, takes a back seat to hop forward citrus and pine. Taste is surprisingly creamy - almost like the beer is masquerading as a stout. Taste is good, if fleeting. Very transient citrus, some pineapple and grapefruit then malty bitterness on the back end. For a guy that doesnít usually like Black IPAís due to their roasted malt dominance this was surprisingly enlightening.

On tap at the Public House in San Francisco , poured into a goblet style glass. Pour is dark (obviously) with a nice thick brown head that sticks around for a bit. Smells just like Racer 5! Aroma is nice and hoppy, with piny resins, some spicy hops and a every so slightly touch of roast at the end to set this beer apart from its brother. Nice thick mouthfeel, but the flavor is rather unexciting, Big roast, musty berry, cardboard, slight bitter chocolate, and a chalky dry finish. Itís kinda weird to taste that chocolate and resiny hops together. Itís a cool style... but itís definitely no Wookey Jack

brown, small tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. lots of chocolate, toast, citrus, spruce, caramel, smoke, slight coffee. medium bitter, light sweet, very light sour. medium body, oily feel. really glad to have a black IPA thatís not dominated by amarillo.

Pith (159) - New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pours opaque brown-black with latte foam head. Aroma grass hops and little bit floral. Can smell some malt. Taste super floral start then a brief sojourn into caramel malts but is quickly overwhelmed by floral and grass tacky tacky hops that completely dries out your mouth. A bam of a beer. Not very drinkable because so strong taste it knocks out tastebuds.
