Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of big pine notes, dark chocolate, black licorice, and a hint of grapefruit. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose chocolate and caramel. The finish has some pine and vanilla. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel.

ICEatALAMO (1299) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle. Super hoppy nose. Pours a very dark brown, but not quite black. The taste is nice and smooth, exactly what I expect from a black iipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scrubfish (46) - Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bomber, Black as advertised, coffee and leather(?) notes on first sniff, big coffee and chocolate notes on first sip, half finger head with a vigorous pour, pancake appearance from above with some big bubbles, medium body, not much on the finish. 8.8 ABV is well hidden. I would prefer a BIPA to a IBA.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber thanks to Amy. Poured dark black with minimal head. Tastes like a hopped up brown porter. Sweet caramel malts, slight roast, huge American hop profile. A nice BIPA.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bomber from Binny’s Arlington Heights. Pours near black with tan heas. Aroma is awesome with fresh hops, citrus pine, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavors of sweet chocolate. sweet roasted malts, pine. light citrus, and light bitterness. If this beer had more hop bitterness it would be great. For a black IPA this is pretty solid.

Darkover (1534) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2012

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
pours black with reddish hues when held to light. Creamy dissipating one finger head. Aroma of some earthy hops and dark malts, maybe some faint bitter dark chocolate. Medi bodied. Tons of chocolatey flavor slightly offset by some Hoppiness. This is quite impressive. As you get more into the beer, it becomes a lot like hoppy chocolate milk, which I love.
