4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with small head and moderate lacing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt up front with some subtle grapefruit hop in the background. Moderately bitter throughout. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Long, full bitter finish. this is well crafted. I like this a lot. It starts off almost as if it’s going to be more like a porter, but the hops catch you to remind you what you’re really drinking. Bravo to this.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, sweet roasted malt, hop oils. Flavor of roasted malt, smooth chocolate, charred malt with grassy hops and hop oils in the finish. Very robust, tastes like a roasty brown IPA.

Draft at the brewery. Don’t get me started on my rant about "black IPAs" again ... this is a good coffee-based base, a bit chalky, with a big hoppy flourish. It’s good, but I still don’t care for the combination. (#5667, 8/28/2014)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate and malt with piney hops. Flavor is overtly chocolate and light roasty malt with caramel, vanilla, and nutty notes with some distinct citrus and piney hop bitterness present particularly on the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great effort.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Eden Prairie Liquor. Pours darker than cola colored with a foamy tan head. Aroma has dark patent malts, light citrus and pine with caramel. Later down on the glass, some nuttiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, bitter nuts, some espresso, light grapefruit with black malts. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes more bitter nutty/malty than sweet on the bitter-sweet scale,. Solid offering. 13.8

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can:   Very much like a Black Ale, albeit with a little more hop bounce (but not too much), lots of dry chalky bakers chocolate, and a touch of pasture.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Seems a bit dry as well.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, albeit nearing the thing side.   Comes across as not very adventurous, a bit of a mediocre example.   Nothing off, but nothing outstanding either.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours a flat black body under a nice frothy light brow head that had excellent retention. The nose is a mixture of roast, chocolate malt, citrusy hops, and a little bit of a floral note. The flavor is a perfectly balanced mixture of chocolate malt and bitter fresh hoppiness up front, with the roast emerging a big stronger on the finish. Great lingering citrusy finish that really hangs around. Medium bodied with a slight resiny cling from the hops. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Excellent beer, just about perfect Black IPA for my tastes.
