Sasparilla black body with browned froth head. Lovely merging of carafa roast and cascade hops. Clean, de-bittered roast presence with rolling waves of floral cascade goodness and chocolate undertones. The finish is also Cascade juicy bitterness.

draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front itís licorice astringent black patent and roast with cheesecloth yeast / hop character... so it has the bitterness of the roasts grains with an oily soy sauce flavor, and a terribly thinning and acidic / fizzy texture. weak malt structre throughout, and lacks pretty much any aromatic hop character expected in IPA.

Pours darker than their stout. Nice, interesting citrus/pine hop aroma, matched in the flavor, which adds some roastiness. Nice - best on their taplist aside from the IPA.

Thanks Kevin for sharing this brew! A- Body is an opaque dark brown hue that pours with a foamy 2 finger off white head. Plenty of lacing is left down the glass. S- Nose is very earthy, herbal, grassy, and mossy with a hint of roasted malt in the background. T- Taste is very similar to the smell. This is a hoppy beer indeed-but more the medicinal, herbal remedy, hippie, going green type hop than the bright american hop profile that I am used to. A very faint roasted malt backbone is there-but the highlight here is the hops. M- Carbonation is soft with a medium weight body. D- This is probably more earthy than unearthly. Certainly a different, atypical type of IPA. If I was into the more earthy hop I would love this brew-but I like my hoppy beers bright or floral. Still a decent beer overall.

My favorite black IPA (besides the ones Iíve brewed myself). Hopworks doesnít go overboard with roasty flavors, nor to they make a ful-bodied caramelly mess like many other black IPAís Iíve had. This one hits the right balance of hops, malt, and roast. Iíve had this at Hopworks, though, and never from a bottle, so I canít say how it ages.

Bottle: Black color with a light head. The nose is grassy and hoppy with a dry roasted malt note. The flavor shows more roasted malts than hops and it seems a little disconnected. Interesting though, the black IPAs are proving not to be so easy to brew.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of AmEricanbrew) Pours a mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted grain, grapefruit, and herbs. Flavor of roasted malt, citrus, grass, caramel malt, and pine with a moderately bitter finish.

Rastacouere (6128) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Draught @ brewpub. Nice cloudy copper pour covered by a delicate light beige head. A strongly aromatic, very toasty, caramel laden ale with a fun roasty twist that adds a roasted grain side that would fit in a big brown ale. Thatís not what we have though, hereís a hop-forward, punchy Portland ale. Strong and perfumey, fresh, citrusy, resinous hops bring plenty of bitterness to balance out the caramel. Very good stuff, whose freshness is deployed on the tongue and provides the most effective cleansing, effective carbonation that makes the whole ensemble very easy-going. Feels much better than the sum of its parts. In one phrase, this is what Lagunitas probably aims for under 40 different labels.

MrChopin (3276) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to olympuszymurgus!Transparent dark brown, red highlights. Dank mint, earthy nose of light flour. Flavor is more malt up front, light green bitterness and pine with something that reminds me of cat litter. Very salty, piney earth finish. Light profile throughout, nothing dominates the other elements, but then again there isnít much here.
