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.

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.

Overheard: "If it’s already half out, you can just uncurl it."

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Good sized light brown head of medium sized bubbles. Hoppy and fruity aroma with sweet tarts, floral hops, raisins and some dark malts. Color is a very dark crimson brown. Soft and smooth mouthfeel with plenty of hops bitterness to go around. Little bit of mint, roasted grains, raisins again and some cough syrup. Very strong lingering malts with a noticable alcohol presence. Finishes sticky and malty with a bit of bitterness. I didn’t realize that this was a black IPA otherwise I would have drank it sooner. Still a solid brew though.

Black, golden brown lace. Nice citric hop aromatics. Fine roast , light bready malt base. Broad hoppiness- grassy, citric pinelike. Mellow mouthfeel. Long hoppy tail. Very pleasant.

Jblauvs (1346) - Chester, Vermont, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Dark brown in the glass with an off-white head. Aroma is nutty, some cocoa, with a light bitterness. Really nice, creamy beer, that pairs unsweetened chocolate with light resinous hop bitterness. Much more coherent than some other examples of this style. Tasty bottle, I would definitely pick this up again.

Very dark pour, soft light brown head. Strong roasted coffee aroma, very nice bitterness on the tongue, maybe some licorice behind the unsweetened chocolate and a pleasant acidity. Looks like it would be sweet and heavy, isn’t either. Another interesting Lagunitas brew. I would definitely pick this up again.

Poured from bomber into some weird teardrop glass. Lots of thick head. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor is not as intense as some other black IPAs I've had. For the most part, it is well balanced and enjoyable.

Black color, big beige head. Aroma of pine and roasted caramel. Balanced taste of dark , roasted malt and hops. Decent bitterness . Roasted and hoppy aftertaste. Perfect hidden alcohol.

I finally got around to opening this bomber Dan gave me for father’s day. Pours black with a Huge, frothy, rough bubbled, lacy light brown head. Grapefruit, pine, chocolate aroma. Flavor is cream, rich chocolate malt/fudge, pine and bitter hops. Creamy and smooth. A tiny bit of warmth from the alcohol. This is an outstanding BIPA.
