pours a nice black with a minimal dark tan head. This black IPA has a light sweetness and a darker hops taste, it has a dark roasted malts taste and a dark coffee bitterness. There are also hints of smoke and earthiness here.

Pours depp brown/black with a medium off white head. Aroma is subtle and has notes of citrus, pine, and roasty/burnt malts...touch of coffee. Flavor has coffee and faint dark fruit, burnt bitterness, and pine/citrus notes. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a dry piney/coffee bitter finish that lingers with coffee roastiness.

Firkin at Real Ale. Man this was fresh, best Iíve ever had this one. Pours a deep brown, near black with thick tan head and lace. Aroma of floral and piney hops with some chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet with a ton of pineapple coming through. One of the better black IPAs Iíve had. So much better than when Iíve had this in bottle or draft.

a bottle from a mix 6. very black color with thin beige head. smell is 50/50 mix of chocolate and grapefruit. Taste brings in more citrus and solid punch of bitter. Very similar to loose cannon which is an A+ IPA.

Pint at Devils Den, pours pitch black with creamy beige head. Lots of lacing on this one. Aromas and flavor of roasted malt, dark chocolate, citrus hops, light peat, lots of pine. Sticky palate with a very full body. Maybe a bit hot for the percentage. Still a nice choice from Heavy.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Very similar to Loose Cannon outside of color. Malt profile just doesn't mesh as well.
