COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are two kinds. There is the DayTime kind, which is bright and welcoming and then there is the NightTime kind, which should never be confused with the DayTime. NightTime is dark and deep and may take you to unexpected places, places that the DayTime cannot. But then, the NightTime is not suited for ordinary life and ordinary tasks. In fact, NightTime may be the answer for that sort of thing, meaning that those sorts of things may never get done. Things take time in the NightTime, things slow down and you can puase (you have to, actually) and investigate carefully to find that level of objective detachment that is only possible under the spell of the NightTime. Seek the Day, but fear not the Night.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Dark brown color. Aroma is citrus and pine. In the taste, the hops hit you right away. More pine than anything else. Malty for sure but drinks like an IPA. Creamy mouth feel. Overall this is a great beer, but I’m not getting much of a roasted malt quality like I thought I would. If I was blindfolded there’s no chance I would guess this is a black IPA; smells and tastes exactly like a good "regular" IPA.

jercraigs (7934) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
2014-10-09. Very dark mahogany brown body with a nice foamy head. 3+ Aroma of mild green hops and light roast. Flavour is mildly bitter, good leafy green hops throughout. Moderate dark malt and light roast. Lingering fruity green hops. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay. Bottle shared by Blankboy

Maltser85 (295) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pour is black with hints of deep brown at the bottom in the light. Nice fluffy khaki head. Aroma is sweet with hints of pine, mint, and herbal note mixing with maybe tropical intermittent dark chocolate or roast/coffee aroma. Taste is pine up front, followed by citrus orange or clementine, rolls into a roast, chocolate pine bitterness to finish. Slight sweetness, nice mellow bitterness. Maybe a touch of alcohol, but probably not. Body is medium to medium full. Nice.

Shinskyweiser (39) - - OCT 26, 2014
Pours black as night. Thick tan foam last. Smells of prunes and dates. Taste like bitter dark chocolate covered raisins. It has a sweet bourbon like aftertaste with hints of coffee. Nice complex black IPA.

Nice dark IPA. Strong hop notes, but not overpowering. Not a great beer, but a very good one.

GG (2140) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
22oz bottle - Aroma - huge citrusy/grapefruit aroma. Aroma was dominated by the citrus angle hops and it was excellent. Appearance - black body, 3-finger dark tan head, above average retention, no noticeable lacing Mouthfeel - medium bodied, light carbonation, smooth Flavor - light roasted malts, grapefruit bitterness, light sweet coffee flavor, very clean Overall - phenomenal for $3.50/bottle. It delivers the hop craving in the aroma, a clean hop foward flavor, supporting malts and while the ABV is high, it drinks like a 5% IPA. Excellent.

tillmac62 (221) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2014
BOD 114/14. Pours almost as dark as a stout with an exceptional head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of sweet tropical citrus (orange, pineapple), pine, chocolate/toffee and a touch of roast over a slight alcohol note. Almost light medium bodied with a just a touch of slick texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and finish. The flavor profile is complex, well balanced and does a stellar job of hiding the alcohol. It begins with the sweet tropical, then flows to pine as the mild bitterness begins. The middle is where this beer excels. As the bitterness equilibrates, the coffee/toffee, roast and sweet chocolate come to the forefront in an effervescent flash. The finish is somewhat dry and leaves a nice lingering light bitterness on the tongue with a light toffee and chocolate flavored sweetness coupled with a hint of grapefruit rind tartness.

Growler, Calgary, AB, Canada via Liquor Depot Crowfoot. Jet black, lasting tan head. Great aroma, powerful malt-raisin with black liquorice and prune. Velvety, smooth, molasses sweetness then a bright alcohol infused hop finish.

Bomber poured into a shaker glass. Has a dark black pour, with a light brown head. There was a pine, wood, roasted malt aroma. Nice chocolate, coffee, caramel, and wood roasted malt taste. Overall very satisfying brew.
