I was a little leery of this one as dark beers with pine can swing wildly in either extreme. This one worked well although with Meigs in the name I was expecting hemp in the aroma. The roasted malts give this a smoothness in the taste that works well with the pine and citrus tones from the hops. I liked it but put this in the category of getting "old" quickly.

BeerandBlues2 (9104) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear black with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and coffee malt, earthy and herbal hops, and prunes. Flavor is bitter dark malt, moderate hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a dry finish.

Draft at the source. Black, beige head. Aroma of pine, cocoa. Taste is bright pine and roasted coffee. Delicious.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, char, hop oils, citrus. Flavor is very roasted initially and then the hops start to kick in- grassy, resiny hops. More char/roast in the finish. Very good, hearty black IPA. 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)

phaleslu (5889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Draft sample from the Public House side. Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head that leaves some lace in the glass. Notes of dark chocolate, earthy hops, toast, nuts, and faint citrus. Light-medium bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really solid Black IPA. Dry and smooth and balanced.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Black with lots of lace. Very roasty and the hop flavour right there as well. Chocolate.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasty with notes of malt and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt, piney hops and a bit of coffee. The finish is hoppy up front with a roast malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

DrSilverworm (5053) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Sample on tap at Jackie-O’s 7th. Dark black but still clear color. Thin light brown / grayish head. Really interesting flavor. Good big chocolate syrup note, big earthy hops. Medium / big body, good dry texture. Light crisp carbonation. Moderate bitter taste. Big bitter sweet taste, more chocolate than expected. More bite, too. Good, but much richer than I was expecting. Very unique from other Black IPAs I’ve had.

alexsdad06 (4553) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at Jackie O-s 8/18. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma had roasted malts, grapefruit, and resiny hops. The flavors had a nice combination of malt and hops which is a nice start. Roasted malts with a light touch of black coffee blended with grapefruit and resiny hops. There is a general bitterness that remains in the finish. I would like to see the flavor last a bit longer on the palate, but overall this was pretty good.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Sample at Jackie O’s during the bottle release on 8/18/12. Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Malty nose with notes of licorice, roast and grassy hops. Malty flavor with some spiciness (not sure if there’s rye in this or if it’s from the hops) before a bitter and roasty finish.
