12 ounce bottle. Brown-black appearance, low foam but lots of lacing. Grainy and sweet aroma. Malt backbone in the taste, toffee and caramel, roasted dried fruit, hops were blanked out. Medium-to-full bodied. I’m not a big fan of this one. It fired off like an English strong ale, not a black ipa. Potent and assertive abv. The name is appropriate.

Was a bit nervous with the darkness of the pour. Still a bit of a roasted taste for my liking but has a pleasant grapefruit taste as well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown. Smell is full of hops. Taste is very hoppy with citrus with an underlying sweetness. Finishes with lingering bitterness. Very good beer from a young brewery.

This is a dark beer with a big foamy beige head. Some cereal grains, some of them burnt, and citrus hops in the nose. Strong grapefruit juice and pine hop flavors with some roasted grains and burnt toast flavors. There is a wet caramel sweetness. The is a full flavored, sweet hoppy beer.

12oz bottle 6/8/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix a Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours black with a small loose tan head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with more chocolate and coffee. This medium to full bodied brew has a lot darker tastes and is still easily drinkable. Great brew.

My current favorite. Keep trying other Black IPA's, and can't find anything better. Perfect balance of roasted malt to bitter hoppiness. Also 7%+ to just give it that little extra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and fruity hops. Yum! Taste is a great balance of roasted malt and fruit(citrus) hops. So tasty. Green Bush is a 2.5 hour drive for me- sounds like a summer trip.

Pours a very dark brown, with medium, creamy head. Aromas of grapefruit and hops. Serious citrus flavors, heavy bitterness. Slight taste of charcoal or ash.

A very nice take on what is fast becoming one of my favorite styles. Coffee and chocolate up front, mild bitterness in back. Dark appearance with nice head. Picked this one up in Grand Rapids on my trip to Toronto in 2013.

Pure black. Very heavy smokey smell, with incredibly fresh hop notes popping through. Thick tan head.
