12 oz bottle. Bottled Jul/11/16. (Siciliano's) Grand Rapids, MI. Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head. Mild sweetish licorice, mild toasted malt, mild hops and some dryness in the aroma. The flavor is lactic sweetness, licorice, roasted malt, hops, mild bitterness and some medical notes. Pretty decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Impressive! Beautiful pour...black as coal with a dark tan head that lingers and laces through the entire glass. I could tell from the aroma that I was in for a surprise. I will be drinking more of this. The flavor is excellent.

ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap, poured into a tulip. The aroma is grape jolly rancher and mild toast. The grape jolly rancher, turns to grape jelly / grape filling and dark chocolate. The beer pours a dark stout look with a filmy, sudsy, tan head that has mild lace and retention. The taste is a medium high bittersweet with slightly more bitter. The texture is oily and smooth with a fuzzy carbonation and medium full body. The flavor is at first, a grape jelly and burnt bread combination with a finish of jolly ranchers and roasted chocolate, as well as a secondary notes of molasses, toasted bread, fig, and bitter herb. The aftertaste is dry, with mild flavors of burnt toast and grape candy.

olio (9274) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2015
355 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is quite nice with citric fruits, some salmiac, dark malts, subtle cocoa notes too. Flavor is bitter malty, dark fruits, lemon, hops, subtle resin notes and mild grapefruits. Refreshing, leans just the right amount to the fruity side. Nice.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep blackish brown with a frothy tan head. Aromas are a mix of powdered chocolate and pine needles and flavor is similar with most of the kick coming from resinous piney hops in the finish. It’s very nicely balanced for a BIPA and an excellent example of the style...

SG111 (1263) - New York, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Bottled 07/08/15. Just about 90 days on it. Pour into tulip, black, almost chestnut as the light shines through on the pour. Big mocha colored head, very creamy. Looks good. First whiff, I get a big piece of candied orange, or some tropical fruit, maybe pineapple, def. citrus notes. But the power of that dissipates quickly into heavy roasted malt notes. Coffee dominant, some mild chocolate. Malt is really nice. If you dig for it, the citrus is there, but it’s almost more of a hoppy stout. As for flavor,the stout qualities really dominate, but this may be b/c it’s 90 days past bottling, maybe fresher it’d be more citrus-y. Still not into stout territory, but getting there. Roasted malt, chocolate, mild citrus in there except for the hop bite where the hops resurface. Pretty solid mouthfeel on that bad boy. It’s a good black IPA. Is it the best? No, but it’s def. something I’d drink again.
