Slipstream (2007) - USA - JAN 16, 2012
On tap at Capone’s. Black pour with a persistent little head. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Unlike other Fosters I have come across, this one is full flavored, with lots of hops and toasted grains. It is hard to believe this is a wheat ale. It is spicy, citrusy, with perfume-like aromas that come thru as it warms. Really good.

pushkinwow (1997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Black with a light mocha creamy head. Slight roasted malt, toasted hops and grains. Light body, moderate carbonation, but bitter, bit of coffee, becomes dry and a little more bitter on the end. Was initially too cold - as it warmed up the complexity really started to shine through - also a much better finish.

BrewBoxer (1981) - New York, New York, USA - APR 8, 2011
Draft at rnh. Herbal and grassy with a citrus fruit tang but with very dark and roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee notes. Hints nuts and spicy rye. Deliscious.

ThirstyBird (1542) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2013
catching up with an old rating from 2010. From a growler thanks jedwards! Appears super dark cola color with a nice tan head than falls to a blanket. Smell is citrus, chocolate and dark malt. The taste is slightly sweet up front, lightly bitter in the middle with a subtle dryness on the aftertaste. Medium body with elegant, smooth fine carbonation.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2011
On tap at the Blackback Pub & Fly Shop - Pours a quite dark brown/black in color with a hefty tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy... both pine and some citrus. Flavor was medium bitter and hoppy with a hefty dose of the rye’s spiciness filling in the middle. Finish is lingering and quite bitter.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a dark chocolate with small tan head. Aroma has notes of rich chocolate, orange, pine, and pepper. Flavor is primarily resinous with a malt and rye backbone. Very good.

patrickfannon (1239) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2011
5 oz flight. Pours dark cherry mahogany with some crazy, sticky tan lacing. Aroma of pine hops, chocolate, soft black tea, and some resiny, citrusy hops. Full, sticky nearly chewy mouth feel with some heavy toasted chocolate and coffee notes. Excellent Black IPA.

On draft pour. Cool different style. Alomst black pour with wheat notes in the taste but yet hoppy in the aroma and taste/
