Lube? Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! Social lubrication, people coming together to unwind, is what we are talking about. This American Black Ale has a dark body, medium bitterness, balanced with West Coast hops and sweet orange peel.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
650 ml bottle. Bottled 8/11. From Kihoskh, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Black colour with ridiculously big tan frothy head. Piney hops and roasted malt in aroma. Excellent Black IPA aroma. Like walking through the coniferous forest with malt and chocolate with you. Flavour is very smooth with mild hops and roasted malt. Low carbonation. Very drinkable and tasty but quite simple Black IPA.

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pour out of bottle, thanks to Steve! Pour is dark brownish almost black with off white head, aroma has notes of resinous pine, grass, and a mix of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is resinous and dank pine and grassy notes, hints of fruity orange and grapefruit, touch of roasted coffee and chocolate, finishes fairly bitter with a bit more pine. Pretty decent.

DuffMan (8325) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
On tap @ Radio Maria. Very dark brown with a light brown head. Sweet mocha and dark caramel aroma. Less intensely flavoured then the aroma suggests, and I found the hard roasted flavours were quickly swept away by bitter, pithy hops. A tad thin on top of it all. Chalky dry finish.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
65 cl bottle. Bottled on 02/2012.
Pours dark red color with a huge head. Aroma of hops, ripe fruits, orange peel, some licorice, toasted malts and goose berry bush. Flavor of malts, some licorice, ripe fruits, oily hops and some goose berries. Bitter and a bit stuffy palate. A bit disappointing.
