Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, pine, and light roasted nuts. It pours dark brown with some reddish-orange highlights and a large beige head with great retention and lots of clumpy lacing. The flavor starts with chocolate and a touch of caramel. The finish has moderate roasted nuttiness and pine. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, itís a hoppy Porter. Calling it a Black IPA is a bit of a stretch...at least in terms of flavor profile.

nuplastikk (4565) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Big, real deal Black IPA. Opaque brown-black body. Big foamy beige head. Classic black chocolate mint aroma and flavor. Big and full bodied, with some serious chocolate covered hops. While it still seems like itís on the brink of infection, this is a pretty quality offering. Chunky, thick specialty malts. Solid.

ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Location: Draft at Girl and the Goat, 7/5/14

Aroma: The nose is a nice mix of chocolate malts and pine/resiny hops
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a nice forth of tan/light brown head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, nice balance, some sweetness, but leans bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, smooth, with a decent dryness
Overall Impression: A very nice example of the style overall. I enjoyed this beer, and I also thought it held up well with the food at this excellent restaurant.
