On tap at brewery and from growler in Rader tulip glass. Pours black with brown head and some lace. Aroma of dark roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Medium carbonation and strong mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate, carob, slight chalk bitternes. Overall bold and perhaps more bitter than sweet as a black IPA should be...tasty enough that I brought a growler home.

Deep black with a thin ring of beige foam around the glass. Closing your eyes and smelling the aroma, you could forget this is a black beer. Tropical hoppiness like papaya and floral resin, with a sweet malty backbone of caramel and toffee. Flavor starts semi-bitter with pine and floral flavors, quickly mixing with a deep malty caramel and roast malt tone, a touch of smoke, and finishing slightly piney and roasty-sweet.

Tap @ Echo. Pours a reddish, dark brown appearance with a tan head. A bit min/piney, caramel, chocolate malty aroma. Pretty roasty, bitter piney, herbal hoppy flavor with some booze and a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. The abv is tuned a bit too high for me on this one.

This wasn’t right, hope to try again when it’s fresh and rerate. Last session of gabf.

Pour on tap at Art and Ale festival, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma has chocolate, caramel, toffee, some hints of pine and grassy notes, slight odd berry note in there. Taste is a mix of chocolate, coffee, hints of roast, touch of berry, orange, and grass and pine, finishing fairly bitter but slightly sweet.

On tap at Echo poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of roastiness, grapefruit, pine and earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of roastiness, pine, grapefruit and earthiness with a crisp dry bitter lingering roasty finish.

Nice job. Dry hoping kicks this black IPA into legitimacy. Nicely balanced, one of the better black IPAs I have tried!
