Stracey (39) - Pelham, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Pours black with a tan head. Floral hops aroma is present, but muted. Some oakiness there as well. Taste is light. Mix of IPA and stout seemingly. No aftertaste little bitterness.

Prufrockstar (957) - 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 (2419) - 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.

mojoman (158) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2013
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 (8114) - 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 (5015) - 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 (6789) - 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.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bomber. A huge burst of carbonation exited the bottle upon opening, and after dumping half the beer down the drain to try to alleviate the gushing (unsuccessful) I got a glass of 100% head. Fizzy, rocky, tan. The beer itself is dark brown and murky. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, nutty notes, herbal hops, faint green apple. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, herbal hops, bitter finish. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. All in all, quite an adventure.

Ed5388 (2089) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours dark brown almost black color, with a decent sized foamy tan head. Aroma is caramel, a little bit of coffee, citrus, pine, and slightly earthy hops. Flavor is slightly roasted, coffee, a hint of cocoa, pine and grassy hops.
