LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Great beer. Aroma was nice. Dark roasted malt and dank resinous hops. Very inviting. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was delicious. Juicy and dank hops were big in the front while the roastiness and dark malts came out in the finish to dry the mouth and balance the beer out. I usually am not a fan of this style, but this beer coud wine me over. Nice carbonation.

12oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of floral and piney and lightly resinous hops, some dark malts with a pale and caramel note, some dough, and hints of some fruits. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid black IPA.

beerbill (3536) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2014
On draught at the the brewpub. Arrived a very dark brown, not quite black with a thin tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and resiny hops with a few notes of molasses. The flavor is malt with some mild toast and again just a bit of molasses followed by flavorful and not overly bittern resiny hops. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Solid.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a red brown color. Ok head and week lacing. Aroma of toasty bread and caramel and citrus and pine. The roast and pine win in flavor. Mouthfeel moderate to full. Decent but not much better than average.
