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.

IrishBoy (3869) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
$4.49 bomber from Safeway Salinas. Nose is heavy with flowery hops, light pine, and some light nutty and roasted notes. Black with brown edges and a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is bitter and piney with some background nuttiness. Another great, inexpensive offering from the Lagunitas guys!

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted and caramel for the malt, Moderate to heavy pine for the hops, light leather for the yeast, with tar, toffee and licorice in the background. head is small, frothy, light beige with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a lively to fizzy carbonation. Nice balance betwen the malt and hops in this tasty Black IPA.

Rating the day after: Nice balanced beer. Pours dark and does not taste like an 8.2% beer. Will definitely be buying again.

Lagerboy (1291) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Bomber. Clear deep dark ruby hued brown, solid tan froth settles and lasts. Piney citrus dark roast aroma. Taste is juicy fruity citrus hops well balanced with smooth darker malts, some earthy herbal pine notes, faint hints of black licorice and chocolate, some spiciness. Softer carbonation, medium-full bodied, well hopped. Long bittersweet finish. Well done. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Luvystypotables (753) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Complex aroma of coffee, chocolate and a hint of anise. Dark brown color with a small tan well laced head. Creamy feel with a chocolate and coffee taste. A delicious coffee finish.

Terrific beer. Gorgeous lacing and wonderful hoppiness. I don’t recall it being quite so tasty in a bottle. Hard to believe its abv is 8.6

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
hotstuff (4229) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 7-27-2014. This bottled beer forms a medium sized smooth tan head, opaque dark brown body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine, perfume, and herbal hops. The flavor is moderate bitterness, pine, citrus, and herbal hops. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable. However, I find it to be too bitter tasting for my liking. It has a lingering bitter aftertaste that is not too offensive.

laiti (5899) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Sample @ home
Aroma has salty licorice and some cocoa. Flavour has salty licorice, deep roasted tones, tobacco and hints of ash. Also some tea(!). A bit too salty and thin but nice anyway.

Jultsu (211) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Huumaava mutta keskeneräinen tuoksu. Lämmettyään taas perus Mikkelleriä. Perus musta väri, häviävä vaahto. Kuivahko. Tässä kännivaiheessa valitettavasti ei voi eritellä enempiä. Sanotaan että OK. OK. OK.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bomber. Courtesy of Timo A. Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head. Quite fresh hops, mild bitterness, dark malt and some herbal notes in the aroma. The flavour is darkish hops, bitterness, toasted malt and dryness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

65 cl bottle @ ISKTR 2014.
Pours dark red color with a small head. Lots of hops here even though it’s not fresh. resinous, pine and caramel too. Bitter fruity palate, caramel, resin, some wooden notes too. Might contain some house flavor. Nice.
