notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Can - nearly black pour - thick, soapy, tan lace - nose of woody and citric hops, pretty resinous, with a healthy dose of malt roastiness, som chocolate, toasted cocoa beans - the hop character is also a little sweaty and cheesy at times - oily, slick mouthfeel - low carbonation - taste is bittersweet chocolate, burnt peanut husks, heavily sweetened coffee - hops arrive late - bitter, woody, fairly acidic, leading into a moderately alcoholic finish - messy.

nsquishee (594) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours dark with a creamy beige head. Smells just like cocoa krispies with a light citrus note at the end. Very smooth mouthfeel with a lingering piney bitterness. Flavors of lemon, biscuit, chocolate, and dark roasted malts. Very nice black IPA. It’s already very creamy- I bet it would be great on nitro.

bookman10 (626) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Good black IPA. Pours a thick, dark brown, with small, quickly dissipating, creamy head. Aroma dominated by roasted grain, with some hops, coffee, chocolate. Flavor is marked by coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, some leather, and hops. Finish has a bit of a burnt toast touch to it. Good stuff.
