This black IPA from Boulder Brewing is quite interesting. It pours a medium brown color with a semi-strong smell of hops. It drinks rather smooth and has a semi-strong flavor with slightly nutty hint. The taste of hops is also very evident. A really nice find!

Not a bgi fan of this one. My sample was on draft and it seemed watery, not a huge flavor or aroma.

I thought this was a decent beer but a little subdued. Some maltiness, but I didn’t get a very intense aroma or flavour either way.

Pours a clear brown with some really nice lacing. On tap at JL Beers in Fargo. Malty aromas and flavours with a bit of sourness too. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours crystal-clear reddish brown with an off-white head.
Taste is herbal/earthy hop bitter....water.
Strong flavour, yet a weak body-feel.
More hopped than a regular brown ale.
Good, but the bitter overshadows all the tasty brown stuff....India-style just doesn’t work overly well on top of this type.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Burgatory. Mild roasted malt aroma with a bit of red wine acidity. Very mild hop presence. Cherry notes and a little woody. Deep coppery amber clear with thin lacing head. Medium watery body with medium high carbonation. Starts with muted sweetness, cherries, wood, and a bit of Flemish brown character. Nicer herbal-floral hop taste. Bitter finish with nutty-bitter after. An odd brown ale base with some interesting side notes.

On Nitro at Capitol Beer and Taproom, mild aroma, milky. Not sure I’m sold on nitro but this is a solid brown ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brass tap, pours a brownish color, aromas of caramel, sweet malt, nuts, and some pine. Flavors follow suit, not the best brown ale I had, but still decent overall.
