UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 750ml growler from a recent trade. thank you.... pours a deeper blackish mahogany leaning somwehat in the porterish black quality although hints of red throughout. a soapy fluffy off-white head rests on top and retreats to a little less of it’s former self... aroma is piney dank fresh hoppiness upfront, green and pungent while still being enticing and welcoming. a mild roast quality co-exists but play a subordinate role. cohesiveness definitely achieved between the two complimenting qualities... piney citrus qualites extrememly evident upfront with a less intense roasted malt and cocoa character following quickly behind. the intermingling between the two is friendly and have a nice rapport. more fresh green hops develops through the middle and finishes off on a slightly more roasted note. shy of medium bodied with adequate carbonation. solid but i prefer the other black ipa just a hair more but i’d more than gladly have either.

Pours black with no head. Aroma of wheat, chocolate, roasted malt, and pine. Roasted malt and chocolate flavor with pine, and resin ending. Really nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 750 mL growler paired with original Nintendo and a wife. The beer is a deep, dark shade of brown nearing black. The head is wet sand hued, standing in at nearly two inches tall and plastering the tulip glass with sticky lacing.The aroma offers pine, hops, roast, chocolate. So fresh and flavorful. While I’m not normally a huge fan of black IPAs, this one is delicious. Hop forward, yet well balanced, offering chocolate, bready malts and lingering resinous pine. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate. Lightly bitter for the style with an elegant roast character.While Hill Farmstead Jimmy is undoubtedly my favorite black IPA (though barrel aging certainly plays a role in this instance), Foster stands in second. A great example of the style.

Tap at prohibition pig. Notes of banana cream pie. Touch of roasted coffee. Pleasant juicy grapefruit hop presence. Wheat roast grapefruit hop actually work quite well together. Tasty interesting brew. Liked quite a bit. Dry. Nice body. Nice.

This one is better then James. A total hop bomb with a background of rye and chocolate. FInish is very bitter but still quite tasty.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Super dank hoppy nose, lots of citrus, some roast and chocolate. Taste is fairly dry, lots of bitter chocolate, light brown sugar, boat loads of earthy and citrus pith hops. Rocking.

Growler shared by Minderbinder, thanks man! It pours a dark brown with a small beige head on top that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of soap, pine and resin. Taste is moderately bitter and lightly roasty with some nice piny flavors. Feels quite fresh, almost like if there was menthol in there. Both body and carbonation were moderate. Nice and really well balanced! One of my best black IPAs so far I’m sure!
