Rich black pour with a large tan head. Oak and pecan aroma, maybe a little floral. Very sharp bitter, dry. Nutty, chocolate, and very woody tasting. Finishes with a very bitter citrus note. I wish the aroma was a little stronger, but a very good beer.

Steve_0 (3292) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 On cask at The Hay Merchant. Poured a pitch black with a huge khaki head and great lacing. Smell is char, chocolate, coffee, light pine, and grass, but very malt forward. Taste is chocolate, coffee, light molasses, and a moderately piney bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty good beer, but could use a larger hop profile. I also think pouring this beer on cask was a real disadvantage and completely killed the carbonation. Overall, it was still pretty decent.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle.
Pours a deep, rich black with a nose of woody pecans and wet bark in a hops bucket. Flavor is a blend of chocolate/smoke/hops with a light floral finish. Subtle hints of woody orange rind emerge as the beer dissipates on the tongue. Average mouthfeel. Tasty, for sure.

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a black with a darker beige head. Aroma is darker. Contains some chocolate, licorice, nuts, bread, and a bit of citrus, perhaps grapefruit. Taste is very hoppy and piney. Bitter, dry, and very roasted. Notes of grapefruit and chocolate are detectable as well. Long and heavy pine with a touch of chocolate in the aftertaste. Very sticky upon drinking. This one is pretty interesting and unusual. Definitely worth a try.

jsquire (3725) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Dark beer with faint mahogany hues around the edges. Thin whispy beige head and a nose of roasted grains with some citrus hops. Flavors of burnt grains, brown sugar, wet paper sack and pink grapefruit rind. Nice black IPA.

sailracer (430) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Cask. Malty and hoppy but I didn’t care for the hop flavors in this one, they seemed old or stale. A bit of a malt flavor but overall it seemed kind of thin.

Marheb (3051) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Mélange extrêmement bien balancé entre le chocolat noir et les pamplemousse. La présence en bouche est moyenne avec un fini assez onctueux. Les saveurs sont étonnement aplanis avec peu de soubresauts d’excitations. Quand même bien conçu avec une buvabilité à la hauteur.

PorterPounder (6138) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse (Habersham St) - 22 oz bomber. Pours viscous black as tar with a nice thick khaki head with thick sticky rings of lacing. Aroma is spruce oriented with some chocolate notes hanging around in the back end. Rib-sticking flavor with some light licorice notes, some bittersweet chocolate, pronounced citrus bitterness and some spearmint notes in the back end. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Best Black IPA I have had in a while.
