Draft sample. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt and complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Excellent black IPa, from Champane’s. Black bodied, smooth, juicy more than roasty. A gem worth seeking out.

2012-08-17. Black body with a nice tan head and lace. 4+ Interesting aroma, nice roast and green leafy funk. 7+ Flavour has sort of a dry roasty character, with mild leafy green hops that have a very interesting quality to it that defies my description, vaguely cocoa like but that is not really it. 8+ Smooth average plus to medium palate. 3+ A very solid black IPA. Quite nice. Growler, Campground Brewdown 2012

Tap. Woody smoky malt aroma. Dark brown color with small head. Slightly sweet dark chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal hops flavor. Nice balance.

crossovert (6928) - Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Dark and thick-looking black pour with a billowing tan head. The smell is intruiging, it is liek a chocolate cherry pie, there are also elements of roast, pine, and citrus. Not hoppy in the smell but wow what a nice malt scent. The flavor brings the hops. The nice thing is they arent overly furity or citrusy they provide backing support but don’t clash with the malt. It leaves the beer a dry, bitter, cocoaey type ipa. Not super sweet, very nice.
