Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, fully lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, carob/cocoa powder, cookie), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a light note of sherry/cardboard. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Iíve no idea how old this is...the brewery stamped the bottom with numbers like 00621 and 00658, which is neither a normal date nor a Julian date, so I guess itís a batch number. There is some mild oxidation in this sample and the hops are also faded, so this may not be that representative, but itís actually pretty decent as-is. Nice malt notes, nice lasting head, nice mouthfeel. Presumably even better when very fresh.

ffaoe (369) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2015
hoppy, slight malt aroma. pitch black in color with a really nice head. Taste is actually nicely balanced with roasted barley and dark malts, slight coffee, hints of chcolate with good resiny hop flavor. I normally donít like IPAs, but this one has a lot of character.

coldbrewky (1532) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Ponder can via Sloth. Mellow hoppy waft of a nose. Body of a stout. Low lie, the fields of Athenry! A groovy drinker, I could hit about four of these in a row right now. No tin from the can... Dark as a black steers toucous on a moonless prairie night. Thin burnt umber head settles to rings quickly. Some mellow quaff rings. The dude abides.

Leighton (15281) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Keg at the Ginger Man - NYC. Pours rich brown with a lasting, creamy beige head. The nose holds burnt pine, light roast, milk chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with creamy chocolate character, some burnt caramel, light smoke, bitter earth and pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and velvety mouthfeel. Finishes sweet, lightly warming, with slick chocolate, oily pine, some bitter char. Not bad overall.

commonmac (758) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Tap at Devilís Advocate. Tulip glass. Tan head. Lacing well. Deep black color. Aroma of hazelnut coffee blended with a subtle hop note. Taste has roasted malt qualities and the coffee sticks around. Good hop bite at the end with an influx of citrus. Definitely owns its black IPA essence. Overall one of the better options in the style.

pineypower (2832) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Can, thanks to Dave for sharing at EBF. Pours out almost a cola color with a small off white head. Aroma is of light roast, some chocolate, some citrusy hops and some light floral notes. Taste is solid, smooth, nice light roasty notes, mild chocolate, medium roast coffee, citrusy hops, light floral notes. Solid BIPA.
