COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to a smooth, chocolatey, semi-roasted ale that bridges the islands of porter and stout. And if you aren’t a fan of bridges, there’s always the canoe.

On tap at Grumpy’s NE pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, slight piney bitter hops with a slick palate. I’d say this swings more to the side of decent porter.

Pretty good version of a stout. Pours a dark black with smallish head. Aroma is full of roasted malt. Flavor is a pretty balanced combination of roast coffee and grain, with a lot of malt sweetness. Semi-bitter finish.

Can. Black color with a medium head. Aroma of chalk amd light pine. Dry chocolate flavor. Moderate roasted barley. Fairly bitter, but more malt astringcy than hop.

Pours a deep black with no real head, though that head would be beige. Toasty roasty burnt aroma with some coffee and a bit of caramel. Taste is surprisingly citrusy. Toast and coffee flavors dominate the mid game with just a touch of sweetness. Kind of watery, though you could call it juicy thanks to the citrus notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Lake Avenue Cafe - Duluth, MN. Hoppy and warm aroma, with a bit of lime zest. For a stout, this is an okay Black IPA. Seems hoppy and light on the roasted barley. The sweetness level is a little high and the hops get pretty grassy. In the middle of the pack.

Black with tan head. Aroma is all roast. Flavor is hollow. Hint of roast but quite thin.
