Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Had on tap for $5.99 a pint at Terry’s Terrace in Harrison Township (?), Michigan. Just not as impressed as the majority of people here. Appearance: Pitch black with a creamy finger or two of head. Pretty gorgeous, if I may say so. The lacing doesn’t last through the whole glass, but it’s nice looking regardless. Smell: Quite interesting, like the taste is... smells like a stout or dark coffee with hops. Has roasted malts, coffee, and... hops. Taste: A lot like the smell, but with tastes of char and smoke as well. The hops aren’t present initially, but kick in on the finish. It definitely has a different taste for the average craft beer drinker (whatever that means), but it’s certainly not an unpleasant one. I definitely preferred this beer when it was a little bit colder than room temperature -- once it warmed up, the alcohol could be traced, there was a warmth in the throat, the primary taste was that of smoked wood, and the bitterness really kicked in. I didn’t hate it, but it was certainly tastier within the first 15-20 minutes of having it, as it seemed to just be more balanced. It isn’t my favorite of the style, but it has a unique taste to it... it had me thinking, and it really changes quite a lot the more it warms up. Wouldn’t be my go-to black ale, but it’s a very nice offering from a brewery that I have never heard of. Good going, Greenbush.

Opaque black color with a creamy medium beige head. Aroma is fruity, with some pineapple notes. Flavor is citrusy hopiness with some toasted malt-stout like notes, interesting bittersweet aftertaste. Medium palate, flavorful and gentle with medium to light carbonatation.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of roasted malts, citrus hops and cereal malts. Black hue with an average tan head that mostly diminished and left decent lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is full bodied and water average. Overall a solid BIPA.

On tap. Really interesting. Smooth, hoppy taste with a nice easy palate. Dark, coffee color. Doesn't taste as strong as it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kassner (1351) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2013
On tap at The Oak Cafe. Really nice and true to IPA with a clean hoppy finish, but plenty of dark malt and syrupy flavors up front. Pours black in a dark bar, with a nice head.
