Absolutely delicious and well balanced IPA.
Bottle into tulip, purchased from Epicerie au coin Duluth.
Pours a a deep, jet black with a nice creamy tan colored head.
Nose of fresh hops, floral citrus.
Great malt backbone balances out the hop character, making this IPA very sessionable and highly drinkable.

Many thanks to cfrancis for this bottle!! Dark in the glass with a nice big beige head. The nose is very hoppy-floral intense, hints of roasted malt together with a nice sweetish smooth floralness. Great! The beer starts intense, very deep and viscous. Roasted malt, floral hops, nice bitterness. Quite dry, not really sweetish, but intense! The aftertaste is nice and roasty, viscous, floral-fresh and nice bitter!
A very great brew! Absolutely great!

Nice palate of chocolate and bitterness. Feels like drinking unsweetened dark bitter chocolate with a nice american hops aroma.

BeerAdvent 2013 Day 24. ...Merry Christmas? Pours Very Dark Brown, MASSIVE beige head. Nose is black pepper, roasted malt, grapefruit. Flavour is lemon, grapefruit, licorice. They say it’s a cross of an IPA and a stout but the soft peppery palate and appearance made it seem half Belgian, reminds me of De La Senne Zwarte Piet. Awesome stuff, I’m a sucker for this type of palate.

Bottle from the brewery. Black with burgundy highlights under a huge pillowy khaki head that lingers and leaves great lace all the way down. Nose has tons of espresso, chocolate, molasses, pine and resin with floral notes and hints of vanilla. Light sweet support for a prominent coffee and chocolate bitterness and herbal notes in the finish. Medium+ creamy body with average carbonation and a lingering dry bitter finish. Great example of my favourite style.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Absolutely opaque black. Beautiful.
Lots of bite for such a dark ale. It’s quite sharp and bitter but with a nice subtle roundness in the back. Not too drying on the palate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
341 ml bottle. Pours black with a thick, resilient beige head. Smells of coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa. Tastes like strong, dark chocolate, with a hint of citrus. Biting orange, lemon and grapefruit bitterness in the finish, accompanied by a lingering coffee bitterness. Medium to full bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Second Black IPA I ever have, and I can easily say I love this style. Best of that kind I’ve had thus far.
