Pint can. What I really like about this ale is the aromatic and flavorful blend and balance of chocolate malt and piney resinous hops. Dark black with a tan head and medium body. At 8% this is a substantial black IPA in every sense. Exactly what I want in this style.

commonmac (638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Tap at Devil’s 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.

Can: Pours bitter with a small, dark head. Licorice, chocolate aroma. Strong, bitter-sweet chocolate malt. Nice, long, piney bitter. Really good.

pineypower (2722) - Pine Barrens, 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.

Can at trailer tasting. Mahogany body with tan head. Nice dark chocolate, earthy dirt aromas with a big pine hoppage. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Semi sweet chocolate, black malt, pine, floral flavors----nice chocolate hop finish_____tasty.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Can. Chocolate malt and spruce aroma. Dark brown with moderate tan head. Sweet light chocolate malt and strong bitter spruce/grapefruit peel flavor. Lingering hops bitterness. A hop bomb.

Love the label, a boar vs a croc! .. . Pours s deep brown .. The head is healthy .. Lots of roast and burnt hop particles.. Mouth is a bit creamy, solid finish .. . This was enjoyable .. . . Zebras are the ultimate fugitives

Zeswaft (1455) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Can. My first impression was that damn this is a very malt heavy IPA. Then about halfway through i realized it was a black IPA and it started to make sense. Not really as chocolaty and stout as my favorite black IPAs. More nutty and caramelly. Still piney and citrusy. Decent but a little bit of a chore to get through.

puboflyons (2489) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2015
From the can marked 00635 on the bottom. Deep black pour with foamy tan head. Fantastic aroma of dark malts, licorice, grape, raisins, and earthy hops. The body is medium to full. Roasted flavor to start and decent bitterness at the finish. Alcohol masked.

Maxbier (681) - Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pour from 16oz can. Very dark brown with brown head. Citrus grapefruit aroma with hints of roast chocolate. Flavor is more cocoa than expected at first, then it is quite citrus in flavor. Finish has lingering dark chocolate. This may have too much chocolate for a black IPA but I enjoyed it a lot.
