Bomber to glass in the dark lord line. Really tasty spicy hops with a touch if dark malt. One of the better black IPAs I’ve had recently.

Cask. Darkest amber, almost black, borders opaque. Thin off white head. Bitter. Middle is chocolate malt massaged to a gentle sweetness. Finish jumps in with a strong, but balanced bitterness.

One of my absolute favorite beers. Pours black with a light tan head. It has a hoppy flavor with a mild coffee aftertaste. Flavorful and smooth. I definitely recommend it!

22oz bottle from Zinister. Deep brown color with a minimal head. Nice aroma with grapefruit, more orange citrus, roast coffee, and some chocolate. Wow! Taste is a bit different. More citrus with less malt. Slightly thin.

Black colored pour. Big off-white head. Plenty of lacing left behind. Huge hoppy aroma with some fruity notes and malt and bread. Huge hoppy flavor with the same fruity malt notes. Finishes a little dry yet very fruity and with some hops. Damn good.

Pretty tasty brew. A black IPA? I’ve never had one. Black coffee hue. Hoppy notes. Light head. Smooth wash. No cloying aftertaste. Definitely not dry. It has a warmth to it, that it fits perfect any season. Enjoyable. Karbach keeps adding to its impressive brew catalogue.
