RichardW (1544) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2013
keg, Font Bar, Mcr. Most unusual beer of the evening (22nd March). A sour rye aroma with dark rich fruit flavours & something else I can’t identify, possibly plum. Complex and not for the faint hearted!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at the Fed, Durham - thanks, Abbie! Nice, rich dark brown pour with a big roiling head. Nose is pretty distinctive for a BIPA, owing presumably to the bright, pungent Kiwi hops. Hefty beer but not overpowering or sludgy. Nicely elegant, in fact, for the style, with bright fruits and leafy bitters combining nicely, with the char and molasses bits nicely muted.

reebtogi (4360) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
12oz glass on tap at the Underground Tap and Grill pours almost black in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves a few specks of lacing as it settles. Aroma is surprisingly fruity for a dark brew with some hints of chocolate. Taste is a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a light citrus hoppy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Not one of the better brews from Brooklyn, was a little disappointing.

VertBaconStrips (2097) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Undergound. Music is so damn loud tonight - if these are all requests then everyone stinks. Gonna crush it to get to a better beer. Pine, random citrus, chocolate, a blend of medium roast and toasty malt sniffs. Burnt malts, more toasty things, big dose of pine and gf, bit of choco, touch if burnt or charred stuff, decent sweet flavours. Plenty of pine on the aftertaste. Note to self - stop buying black IPA’s.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Keg at PO Vaults - a black, stout looking beer, sweet smelling with lovely citrus aroma. The flavour has caramel, chocolate and nice smoothness, and a citrus piney hop bite. Very dry but rounded finish.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
On draught at World of Beer. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted malt, pine and hops. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, roast malt and a touch of citrus. The finish is malty up front with a lingering piney hops aftertaste. Pretty good Black IPA overall.
