22oz bottle. Small tan head atop cola dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, chococaramel, some roast, earthy, light grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, chococaramel, some grapefruit/earthy, roast. Smooth medium body, light stickiness, acidity. IMO, more a hoppy stout than a black IPA.

Black color. I was expecting a classic Black IPA, instead I get roasted chestnuts and chocolate, lingering sweetness, and moderate bitterness.
The aroma though is not convincing, it has also a bit of yeast and glue. Different beer.
Pleasantly surprised.

One of best Bkack IPAs I have had. Right up there with wookiejack big combo of hops and roast in flavor and aroma, finishes nice and crisp bitterness from hops and roast. Solid A

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Purchased from Leary’s last week - the Amesbury location. $6.00 ($5.95 + $0.05 container deposit) for the 650 mL bottle. To oversized snifter, it pours a purplish-tinted black with which an off-white-ringed head half a finger in length stood.

Aromas of pine needle tea, charcoal, sourdough starter, toasted breadcrumbs, leather, and herbal hops. Took me a pinch off guard.

Tastes the same with the addition of dried lavender, hop oils, avocadoes, and sweat. Ridiculously bitter. Doughy mouthfeel.
A black IPA with an overabundance of hops and just a touch of roast. I’m impartial to this; probably wouldn’t but again but had managed to finish my glass. #allthatmatters

Pours mahogany-tinged deep brown into a shaker. Mocha head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet macaroon aromas. Soft with coconut and dark chocolate upfront turning to a chemical finish. Weird.

GT2 (9264) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 21, 2015
[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Coronado ][ $2 ][ Tasting Flute ][ 1.17.15 ]
>> Deep near black, red highlights. Perfect gray lace. Nose is red apple, stickier strawberry. Taste is roasty, mild sugar, dense chocolate strawberry, chocolate cake. Slightly off style- not really robust hop wise or aromatic hop expressive.

williamstome (1232) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Very dark brown pour, small brown head. Aroma of caramel, grass and roasted malt, and a distinctive vegetal character which is even stronger in the flavor. Maybe celery? Not entirely pleasant.

From a 22 oz. Ottle shared at home. Pours a clear dark cola with a fine tan head. Aroma of ctrus and burnt grass. Flavors of alfalfa. Slight bitter finish.
