Draft. Subdued aroma. Pours black. Toasted hoppy flavor. Rich mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish. One of the better Iron Hill offerings.

Pours jet black with nice lacing and head retention. Smells like cocoa and of roasted malt. Has a taste of bitter chocolate, and burnt coffee notes. This is a well balanced black ipa, and one of the better ones I’ve had!

Dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma of biscuit, hops, coffee, barley. Taste is roast up front followed by a substantial amount of hop. The finish has medium bitterness from the hop and a kick from the coffee. Pretty clean and tasty BIPA.

Flavors of roasted malt, bakers cocoa, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering roasty finish.

On tap at brewpub as “Black IPA”. What a fantastic beer! Wonderfully hoppy contrasted with roasted malts. Very interesting style. Can’t see how this could be any better, only wish it was available by the case in bottles.

pours black with a medium tan head...great lacing and retention. aroma is subtle but has mild roastiness and some piney/earthy hops. flavor opens up quite a bit...burnt bitterness, lots of roast, a hint of dark chocolate, some biscuit...nice burnt/piney bitterness. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and very burnt/bitter. very enjoyable!

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at IH NW. I have a strange relationship with black IPAs, but this one hits a flavor profile I can get behind.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Aroma of citrus, white wine, caramel and yeast. Pours dark with a good large head. Taste is very floral with good citrus notes and a slight roast malt at the end. Not too much roastiness but very tasty.
