CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2014
Poured into tulip. Dark brown with pillow like 2 finger tan head. Smells like chocolate and toffee. Tastes like hops upfront with a toffee and chocolate backbone. Medium, velvet mouthfeel. Pretty tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Clear, dark brown coloured body with no head at all and no real opacity. Aroma of cardboard, metal, prunes and a touch of roasted malt - no hops at all to smell. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt and oatmeal up front with a surprisingly nice malt profile and some subdued creamy and milk notes and a touch of alcohol and bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows only the roasted malt notes with nothing else to speak of, aside from some light toffee sweetness. Overall, a surprisingly decent beer after the smell was very mediocre - but this isnít a black IPA, a porter at best, but not as bad as I thought it would be! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington on 24-March-2014.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle thanks to Blipp. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a good amount of dark grains and bread notes with a bit of earthy grass notes coming through. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains with a growing roasted malts with a bit of earthy grains.

Brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of roasted malts with notes of coffee. Flavor is roasty sweet malts upfront with some chocolate notes in the finish. Reminds me of a porter much more than a black ipa. Interesting brew. Shout out to Mikeq215 for the bottle! Thanks man!
