On draught from the brewery. Love this beer, It makes me happy despite the name. Nice dark color with a beige head. Very mailty with slight boozie finish.

Not bad. Has a really assertive flavor but not very IPAey. Still worth trying. Black Friday Blackout.

Travlr (13413) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Draft at the source. Opaque dark brown color, brown head with solid lacing. Aroma of vanilla, maple, bourbon. Taste is boozy bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate malt. Tasty, but resembles a BA porter, rather than a black IPA.

phaleslu (6837) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Draft at the brewery, served in a sampler. Pours a deep, dark coffee brown with a small khaki head that leaves a decent ring. Aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate covered orange slices, oak, earth, roasted malt, coffee, pine, and burnt brown sugar. The flavor follows mostly the same lines, with a satisfying sweetness, rich earthiness, roasted maltiness, and an underlying bitterness. Medium-bodied, fairly smooth, and with modest carbonation. Doesn’t drink up to its ABV. Complex and satisfying. My favorite of the evening.

On tap at the brewery. Very dark brown almost black pour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, oak, bourbon, and just a touch of earthy hop aroma. Flavor is actually kind of sweet upfront with tons of roasted character. Notes of coffee and the earthy hops come out nicely in the finish. Delicious.

8oz on tap at Party Town. Having LOVED Heart of Dankness, I’m very excited to try this one. Dark brown color, near-black. Good thin khaki head, with good retention. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, kind of chewy mildly soft texture, lighter carbonation. Awesome aroma of roasty malt, dark chocolate, coffee, earthy hops, mild pine. An interesting bit of complex bourbon aroma, kind of spicy and woody, with a nice mildly warming aftertaste. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, moderate bitter. A bit sweeter than the base beer, from what I remember. A nice mild amount of warmth, just fine for 12%. The big flavor and big chewy body works with the alcohol nicely. Overall, a very fun beer to sip on. Kind of drinks more like a hoppy barrel-aged stout than a black IPA, but I can’t complain at all. Good stuff any way you look at it. A treat to try.

rondphoto (2290) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 4, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear very dark brown/black with an ivory rim head, blobs of lace. Taste is power syrupy malt with noticeable alcohol and a hint of bourbon. Like a tsunami, it shoves its way through the palate to a very warm alcohol finish. Very solid, balanced, somewhat complex, but not for the faint of heart.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2014 Taster at the brewery - coconut nose. Roast and bourbon. Slight jalapeño and no sign of hops. Outstanding.

Tmoney99 (11090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Tap. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and whiskey vanilla wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy wood dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

On tap at Country Boy Brewpub in KY. Pitch black with ony a suggestion of brown. Modest tan head is b=very durable and leaves excellent lacing. Rare barrel is evident in both the nose and the taste but does not mask numerous other flavors. Sweet aroma, as is the flavor at first, but turns moderately bitter by the finish. Very full body with light carbonation. O: Exceptional and highly recommended.
