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.

RichTheVillan (5220) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle at Cotteridge Wines; black pour tiny white, the faintest of piney hop aroma, tastes like a hoppy porter sweet with roast malts and coffee and a small hint of tropical fruit.

jmgreenuk (6213) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee. The flavour is medium bitter, with liqourice and dark chocolate. The palate is a little watery. A decent beer but an average example of the class.

"pours quite dark, aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, orange and pine. flavor the same...interesting balance between dark malt and orangle peel, especially with the feel being almost distractingly light. a good beer, slightly overpriced here. would be very good if not for the thin feel."

auerbrau (3199) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2011
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Having a hard time coming to a conclusion with this beer. I don’t understand the use of orange peel and see it as muddying the flavor profile. The blackness is almost too ashy and the hops are a clean, minty bitterness, as opposed to a floral, fragrant punch I would expect from most West Coast hops. This feels like an amped-up Schwarzbier with some more hops, which pretty well describes a Black IPA.

swoopjones (7013) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle, dark black pour, citrusy hops and roasted malts in aroma. Not an overly pungent aroma. Flavor is PNW hops, chalky roasted maltiness, light coffee. As with the aroma, the flavor is somewhat light too. Not a huge fan of black ipa’s but this is decent

AirForceHops (5030) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2011
22 oz bottle from Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA. $5.99. Black color in a shaker glass. Nose is light pine hops with mild roast. Thin bubbly tan head, light lace. Taste is spot on the nose. Mild pine needles, roasted malt and hop bite in the finish. Some chocolate malt. A mild lingering bitterness. Body is medium leaning toward the lighter side. High carbonation. Overall ok. Some good flavor however, I would choose other brews in this style before buying again.
