Black pour from 22oz bottle with off white head. Taste is dry, bitter, chocolate, coffee, earthy and malty. Balances well. Delicious overall. Glad I have another one by accident

Another fun romp in the beer world provided by Deschutes! 22oz bomber style. This is a pretty good offering of hops and malt, even a little spicy at times. I enjoyed this concoction, although a bit medicinal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color is a very dark brown with a large white tan head, and the aroma blends caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts, resin and floral hops, and a bit of solventy alcohol at the end. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly umami, slightly sour, and a touch sweet; the palate blends a thin texture, medium-light body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish, which doesnít complement the beer but instead distracts from the flavor.

Aroma of cocoa nibs, chocolate and hops. Appears a dark black with a thin foam rim. Taste is bland with subtle notes of chocolate, cocoa, toffee, oats and hops. Overall, Iím a little disappointed by this. Itís not bad but itís very bland. B rating.

Great Black IPA. Lots of roast malt in this with some chocolate even. Some citrus hops, with a dry bitter hop feel. Pours dark with great head and lacing. Medium bitter finish. Tap takeover at Good Dog.

Bomber. Color is dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and some coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate and citrusy hops. Medium-to-heavy body. The hops are a nice counter to the malt, very well balanced. An excellent black IPA.

Pours dark brown with sticky egg white head. Great lacing. Aroma is very light roasted malts, some espresso, great grapefruit and tropical hop notes. Super light body, but thereís a slight sticky coating on the tongue. The more I drink it, the more I like it! Isnít Deschutes the creator of the Black IPA? These guys are great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours black with a big foamy head that fades to a nice ring and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is a great mix of pine and citrus hops with tons of burnt toast, chocolate, and light caramel. Taste is mostly pine hops and burnt toast which I love. Also get grapefruit, tropical fruit, and chocolate at different times. Light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Touch of smoke in the finish. Great Black IPA.

On draft at Capones -first beer week event! Inky black, slight hop aroma. Poor head but nice, creamy lacing. Well balanced malty taste with a decent hops bite. A winner!
