hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Growler... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy taupe head. Good retention. The aroma is oddly meaty - underscored by a healthy helping of more favorable notes of cocoa and old leather. Medium-bodied and astringent with dancing carbonation. The flavor is of unsweetened cocoa intertwined with a nice splash of Cuban espresso. Finishes sandpapery, carbonic, bitter and bone-dry. Growler shared by Matt Moyer. Thanks for the fat pour!

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with an off white head. Floral hops, pine, chocolate, roast, and a lighter coffee finish.

scottyshades (130) - Parkland, Florida, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Growler from GBX A: Pours a pitch black color with a massive khaki colored head. Retention is excellent throughout the glass. S: Caramel, roasty/toasty malts, big fresh piney hops, citrusy hops, coffee, resin. I would say that the nose on this is comparable to Stoneís 15th; very fresh T: Coffee, roasty/toasty malts (maybe even a little char), beautifully balanced by hops. This is one of the most complex examples of this style that I have tried. Cascade and Citra hops are clearly identifiable along with bittersweet chocolate. MF/O: Big big body, slightly chalky feel to it, smooth carbonation, alcohol is not present. A real easy drinker Notes: For all of you that wished Stoneís 15th wasnít as boozy, this is it. Also more complex. Nicely done COAST...I am now convinced that you cannot make a beer that I wonít like

Growler. Thanks for sharing Matt. Bitter hops and coffee notes. This beer is very very bad....

Huhzubendah (2266) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Growler shared by drabmuh, a.k.a. The Growler King. Thanks Matt! A: Dark brown with a crafted white colored head. The head possesses impressive retention and leaves a thick coat of lacing in its wake. S: A healthy dose of hops. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, and pine. T: The taste is fine,but not as delectable as the aroma would indicate. Hops are very present throughout. This is an interesting style, and of the Black IPAs I have had, this is certainly among the best. I donít detect any of the "black" aspect of this beer. I was hoping for something that distinguish this from a traditional IPA. Perhaps a bit of roast, chocolate, or caramel for example? Maybe itís my preconceived notions that led this beer to fall slightly short of my expectations. Overall, I found it to be very enjoyable. M: Medium bodied, with a pleasant bitterness, especially in the finish. D: A good beer that I would definitely drink again.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Aroma:A little char notes in the aroma, a little malty sweetness, not too much hoppyness. Appearance:Dark, nearly opaque. Good cappuccino colored head. Taste:Itís a very mild cascadian dark ale. The hops, while there, are subdued. There is a huge chocolate and roasty backbone. On the foretaste is a good amount of bitterness without a ton of hop flavor. It tastes more to me like a hoppy stout than a cascadian dark,. Palate:The body is medium to thick. Nice carbonation. Overall:This beer reminds me a lot of surly mild. Itís a delicious beer, although Iím not sure Iíd label it a cascadian dark.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Draft at coast. PrePhish Chucktown. Dark pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is chocolate and citrus. Flavor follows suite. Dry finish. Aftertaste is similar to that of the chocolate orange candy available around the time of the holidays. Either way another winner from Coast.
