CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bomber. Dark reddish brown pour with a layer of beige foam and bubbles. Mostly toasted grains, citrus rind and pine resin in the aroma. The taste is a blend of grapefruit, pine and roasted malt with a bit of tropical fruit around the edges. The body is a tad thick and creamy with sufficient carbonation and bitter citrus finish. Overall, a flavorful Imperial Black IPA style brew.

Zeswaft (1455) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bomber. Pours dark brown ruby with big offwhite head. Aroma is not my favorite. Not what i expected from an imperial quasi hoppy style. Burnt hop smell that is usually a warning sign to me. The upfront flavor is the same but about halfway through some piney hops and chocolatey malts save the day. 8% abv totally undectable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep ruby, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing.   Pith and pine on the nose.   Soft sweetness, a little citrus peel.   On the tongue its the same, pine, astringent pith, citrus peel, hoppy.   Wished it were a bit sweeter.   Has a moderate amount of sweetness, but could use a touch more to balance the astringent pith and citrus peel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels a bit chewy, but quickly fades.   Lingering pith and citrus peel.   Pretty good, a bit above average.

Pours a reddish orange color with a foamy head. Nose is hoppy and full of resin and pine . Taste is bitter and hoppy. Finish is bitter as well, not as flavorful as I expected. Quaff Score 5 / 10

zgaier (1599) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2013

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of biscuit and red malt in it, as well as a hint of pine. The flavor is more of the same. The grass and pine notes meld well with the strong malt backbone. There is also a decent amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

mcberko (9200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, light roasted malt and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour is rich, with fruity, citrusy hops, moderate roasted malt character, and a bit of caramel malt. Great balance between the hops and malt, with a moderate sweetness. Great one here.
