This is my type of brew. Imperial IPA and it lives up to what it is. Itís backed with what tastes and smells of a dry hopping with plenty of dark malt to balance this amazing brew. The Malt does play second to the dry hop. Enjoy

Brown black with an intense aroma of pine and pot. Taste is powerfully bitter with pine, alcohol, and some mole-asses chocolate roast. Thanks Dave and Jess

This poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was big resin and herbal hops, very light roast. Flavor similar, juicy and resinous, big strong booze beer, lightly roasty. Nice stuff

Draft at Foolís Gold, 12/5/15. Pours basically black with a thin ring of head and light, spotty lace. Aroma has a lot of longer with lighter roasty. Roast is much strong in the flavor. Gets almost burnt on the close. Fairly full bodied. Really nice take on making something somewhat like a Black IPA, but also not really a Black IPA. Another hit from Carton.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 Pours black with a one finger tan head with a one finger tan head. Aroma is of pine, citrus, dank hops, tropical fruits, coffee, and some light chocolate. Taste is about the same as the aroma with light roasted malt notes and some molasses notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty complex black IPA that I would definiteltly seek out.

Pours a super dark brown with a light head. Pretty hoppy up front then the flavor melds into a bit of roast and cocoa. Some earthy notes creep in on the finish before the bitterness sinks in again.

Can, shared by a chill bro, in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a very dark brown with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is piney with some resiny hops, but itís bright and fruity too. Itís got a little bit of toasty malt to it.
The flavor is plenty hoppy but only mildly bitter. Itís piney and fruity with a little bit of chocolaty malt. Itís unbelievable that this is a 10% abv beer, the alcohol is shockingly well subdued.

Big can in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, some dark and pale malts, light dough, and notes of smokiness. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer but not the best.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to Dmac. Nose is roasty and hoppy, with a bit of wet dog sort of aroma. Digging deep into the aroma I start to get real piney, and a touch of grapefruit. Black with a small tan head. Taste is a fight for chocolate and hops to take over, with both being fairly balanced. Followed by a distinct and sharp bitterness. Finishes dry with a bit of alcohol warming. As I sip a few more times, I start to get a clashing of hops and roast with a lightly sharp and tart finish. I get this a lot with dark grains and hops. Overall, a bit big and on the pleasant side at first. Alcohol does start to warm up about mid glass. Not a horrible BlackIPA, but not one to make me drink more than a glass.
