Tap @Luppolo 12, Roma 20.7.2013
Almost opaque dark ruby-black color, good creamy beige head. Light coffeish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrusy hoppyness, coffee with some caramel. Quite short finish. Label said "schwarzbier" but this tastes more like a black IPA.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Dark brown, woody, hops...nice aroma. Bitter, crackery, balanced hops, toast, has good balance. Not a hop blast, but a good, balanced variant.

> An incredible Black IPA...er...IPL

[ Tap ][ ChurchKey ][ 4oz ][ Mini Snifter ][ Free ][ 2/12/14 ]
>> Holy **** appearance of God, extremely overcarbonated but generating an insane creamy head with retention and lacing of Zeus. Clear deep brown color. Nose is fantastic smoke, lavender, fresh herbs, assertive Black IPA style. Taste is salt, fluffy, aerated, buoyant, never thin, Black IPA bitterness and savoriness. Extremely drinkable. Shocked.

Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Hazy reddish color, small beige head. Smell malts, roast, slightly touch of liquorice, quite bitter, lightly earthy, moderately bitter. Average to medium body and carbonation.
