MarinaMarket (254) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Lots of malt and hops on both aroma and taste. Really nice pour with beautiful head. Much like an imperial black IPA, leaning slightly more malty. Great bittering on the finish. Tasted at 48°F.

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle, 2014 vintage, received for Xmas 2015. Super excited at first, then I noticed the date… pours a flat, medium depth brown and topped with a thin beige head. Little bits of lacing. The nose is citrus, noticeably faded, hops. A little bit of wet dog. The flavor has held up remarkably well; citrus, caramel, and floral hops. Some bitters up front before getting sweet, then a lingering floral bitter finish. Actually drinks pretty good. Will try and get a fresh bottle and revisit.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark brown color with generous compact head. Too similar to a Black IPA not to be mentioned; good resiny hops blend with good malt, and moderate roasty character; full bodied, fruity, fresh.
Very good beer.

Black is back! 22 Oz bottle poured. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan suds head. I’ve never been crazy about this beer, but the release party for it every year is a blast. Some good guys over at the program. Nice toasty malt aroma with a constant roasted flavor. Overall a tasty beer that I like to enjoy once a year. The jingle certainly doesn’t get old. Same as nooooo shit sherlock. Average imperial. Son of a bitch. No shit sherlock.

Pours dark with small head. Not overly boozy for double. Decent flavor but prefer original.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a pretty thick light tan head on there. Nose is pretty hoppy with a lot of floral tones and just a bit of some toasted caramel to it. Taste is slightly toasty and bitter up front, but has a residual caramel sweetness on the back end. Nice brew.
