From growler filled at Boneyard. Wonderful taste, and I didn’t know about the 3 Floyds connection until I viewed this beer’s ratings. No wonder they have a couple of Dark Lord Day posters in the tasting room. A truly wonderful quaff from a great brewery!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep hazy Amber/copper/brown, with a thin sticky light beige head. Roasty dark and piney dank aroma with a hint of cocoa and bitter grapefruit. Nice grapefruity and roasty flavors compliment nicely, with grapefruity/piney bitterness taking the lead, a fair dose of roast and light earthy cocoa soon following. Bitter but balanced and appropriately roasty. Loads of grapefruit.

Draft pour. Cola brown. Faint cream tan head. Aroma is faint roast and pine. Taste is assertively piney with hints of roasted malt and booze. Like chewing on a roasted pine cone. Chewy, sweet, boozy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewery tap room (Bend, Or). Pours a deeper dark brown carmelized chocolatey hue. Dark, decent haze and mellow toasty hues into the edges and bottom. Frothy firm light brown head atop is sizable, firm and cakey. A good glow and healthy darkness. Aromas are a bit toasty, firmly bitter, big grapefruit and subtle gumball tropical appeal. Some toast, earth, firmer florals. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, mellow toast, carmelized malt and subtle toasty lifem big grapefruit, florals and grapefruit. Some tropical appeal, good hop profile with some subtle medicinal appeal. Big hops, fruity but an odd mesh there at times. Backend is toasty, carmelized and a touch brash. That hop profile is potent and fruity but it just never meshes well for me. Bitter, citric, and lots of pithy and rind oil grapefruit as we finish up with toast, subtle medicinal feel. An odd ball. A potent, top tier hop progile just doesn’t mesh well for me into the backend and finish.

solid black ipa - not a standout, but nice roast/grapefruit combo that worked well.

Sampled at GABF 2015 with Andrew and Paul. Pours a dark black body with off white head. Aroma is fresh hop - fruity and almost funky. Mouthfeel is medium with bright pine and citrus. Super faint roast character - essentially none. Great black IPA.

On tap at chucks hop shop. Aroma is kinda blah, just not much to it and muddled. Flavor is pretty interesting and strong. Tart in a strange but kinda good way. Nice chocolate in the finish.
