On tap at the Bulldog in Baton Rouge. Dark brown to black with an off-white head. I get a lot of pine and a light amount of citrus in the flavor and aroma. I also get a hint of roasted malt and some light hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
On tap at Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Black. This is exceptionally drinkable. The hops are present, but not the biggest. But the balance is the real winner here - so so smooth, by which I mean the flavour hits the tongue from the off and remains constant. Good.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at Tap East, London. Pours black with a thick, lasting, tight creamy tan cap. Nice, sturdy dark roasted malts in the nose with punches of burnt pine and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor, pretty smooth, good roasty malts, some juicy grapefruit, nips of coconut, dark sugars. Medium bodied with fine, gentle carbonation. Moderate piney resins to finish, more well-roasted malts, light dirt, dark sugars, restrained burnt grass bitterness, some background cocoa. Great balance overall. Really smooth and cohesive.

NikkTwist (1512) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Nearly opaque ruby black pour with a foamy off-white head. Dark chocolate. Coffee grounds. Cola. Vinyl. Asphalt. Truffles. Cigarettes. Burnt orange peels. Dark malt flavors largely trump the hops here. Medium-light body. Not creamy. Quite sweet but even more bitter. Some nice dark flavors but ultimately feels thin.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. I came here for the porter but they had changed that out so I tried this. The appearance is black with a light tan head with some lacing. The The aroma is roast, burnt, chocolate. The flavor is mostly hops with some roasted chocolate. The finish is piney hops with mostly burnt roast. Not much malt.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2013
This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of medium roast, citrusy and herbal hops. Flavor was ertainly more on the stout side than IPA side, more of a moedaretly hopped stout than black ipa. A bit dirty and astringent in the swallow. Ok.
