Draft at Hop City. Almost black, thick beige head with solid lacing. Nice cocoa pine aroma. Taste is smooth roasty chocolate, lightly bitter finish. OK.

sawbuck (357) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Strong aroma of sweet molasses with some hints of vanilla. Over carbonated 12 oz bottle. Once settled down, nice ebony color with a dark tan head. Thick molasses flavor up front, with too much bitterness up front. Not enough time for sweetness to be noticed. Carbonation way too high, finishes with an even bitterness, but not much balance. Would like to try a properly carbed bottle to compare.

Prufrockstar (1078) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle, thanks to summer secret santa. Pours dark brown with a giant, long-lasting khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, copper, a little garbage. Taste: Nondescript but resinous-ish hop bitterness gets mixed in with the roastiness. Some caramel as well, with a roasty bitter finish. Palate: medium body, loads of carbonation, slick oily texture. Overall: Alabama!

beastiefan2k (2496) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2014
22oz bottle poured into Utopias glass. Way too much head, partially due to glass but also the overcarbed beer. Bad musty malt aroma, poorly hopped. Flavor has roast and wet poor hops.

Bottle; very heady beer. Watch out when opening. Rich with dark malt with a tobacco finish. Average beer of this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sample at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. Brownish-black pour with a thick foamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, hops and citrus. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, mild coffee and citrusy hops. The finish is roasty with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light roastiness and citrus. Flavor mirrors aroma with a nice finishing bitter. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy but good.

22oz bottle. whole glass of foam(common theme with blue pants), then turns black with a tan head. overly carbed palate. unpleasant bitterness. not many dextrins left. its really been chewed up by yeast. strong bitterness. could have a problem.

Had this at brewhaus with Vince. I thought this was a good black IPA. It was dark and malty with good hops.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Bottled 8/28/13. (Liquor Express) Huntsville, AL.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head. Dark hops, fruit, resin, mild bitterness and mild roasted malt in the aroma. Delicious. The flavour is strong hoppy bitterness. There’s not that much Black IPA twist there. Resiny bitterness in the aftertaste.
