On tap. Pours deepest black, slightly brown around the edges, with a finger and a half of tight khaki-brown head. Nose is big grain, slightly roasted, with hints of spice, earth, and stone fruit. An awesome combination. Taste is medium sweet with some bitterness coming through. Not monstrously bitter, but rather well balanced. Palate is full, round, bright in spots with a long bitter finish with a little bite. I’ve been dying to try this and I was not disappointed. Really nice brew and I’ll surely have it again.

umich03jm (2763) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Draft at Box Bar. Pours a pitch black color with a thick off white head that lingers. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, pine, and citrus. Taste is very smooth and delicious. Roasty with a solid bitterness, nice amount of pine and citrus hops, and a thick body. Long roasted malt and hoppy finish. Really good black ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is very bitter and full of hops. It is dark with a light brown head. Taste is very hoppy with plenty of citrus to compliment the hops. Finish is clean and fresh with lingering bitterness. If you’re not used to black IPAs matching the flavor with the darkness of this beer confuses the senses. The all around complexity of this beer makes it one everyone should try.

Bottle from Oxford beer store. Dark body and pine and hop nose. Smooth and crisp even with all that hop and grapefruit taste. Pretty impressive for a new brewery. ---Rated via my mouth

strongpieman (1594) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Deep black with a tall pillowy tan head. Nice malt aroma that has roasted but not sweet accents. Medium to full body, smooth, lots of flavor and a short finish. Very good all around.

12 oz pour at watershed in Chicago. Wonderful aroma of pine hops and roasted malt. Tasted fantastic with the same taste as was the aroma with a full bodied mouthfeel. Would definitely, and will drink again.

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

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.
