Pour on tap at the brewery, dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of big pine, grass, orange peel into a big roast, coffee, and dark cocoa middle, lingering caramel and sweet sugars come through. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, hints of earth, grain, nice pine, orange peel, finishing bitter.

Tap at Northbound. Dark brown pour with a nice full khaki head. Chocolate malts, molasses, and citrus hops. Really well balanced. Nice full palate. Awesome.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2012
On draught at the Indeed Brewing Company’s taproom in Minneapolis, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown (nearly black), with an average sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a film top and beige ring and some spotty lacing. aroma of more 3-C’s hops. Citrusy, grapefruit and some spicy hops that hides the toasted dark malt profile. Taste is full bodied, definitely a strong black IPA character with mostly citrusy and spicy hops that overpowers the toasted malt flavor. Finish has a lingering spicy hop aftertaste with some alcohol presence followed by a dry citrus and malt aftertaste. definitely more of a black IPA than their regular Midnight Ryder.

750ml bottle from mattyb83, thanks Matt! Pours a black body with a very slight reddish hue. Finger-width, very dense and creamy, darker brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is juicier citrus hops with a bit of a sweet orange, pine resins, plenty of chocolates, a light toffee, and a nice roast backing. Flavor is similar. Lots of juicy citruses with a light sweetness, plenty of chocolate malts with a bit of a toffee backing, pine resins, and a firm, but balanced roast. Finishes dry and moderately bitter, but loaded with citruses and a light malt sweetness before leaving a very lengthy aftertaste. Medium, soft body and a somewhat creamy, moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty damn great Black IPA. Very soft throughout and really well balanced, but loaded with juicy citrus hops, chocolate, pines, toffee, and roasts. Awesome beer.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2012
750 ml bottle via trade with mattyb83 - Pours a dark brown color with a long lasting large tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine tar, slight burnt malt, and light fruity esters. Flavor is pine and floral hops with some lightly sweetened roasted malt. The malt sweetness lingers a bit in the finish. Medium body. A very nice beer. Thanks Matt.

ElGaucho (2192) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
First! Woo hoo! Draft at taproom. Smells like a black iPA, with plentiful hops and molasses. Murky dark brown with a thin tan head. Tastes exactly as it smells. A little cloying in the finish. Guessing this is just the Midnight Ryder on roids. I prefer the MR as it doesn’t have the harsh molasses aftertaste.
