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.

2014 - 8.6%, 73 IBU.

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
5/17/14. 22oz bottle from Warehouse. Nice black pour with a solid, thick, and creamy one-finger tan head that sticks around and practically coats the glass with lace, especially at first. Looks good. A touch of citrus and earthy hops hit my nose but mostly I’m sensing roasted malts, almost a savory aspect, light coffee, a mild acidic aspect. The flavor has a slightly more hoppy punch, but again, I’m getting roasted malts, dark acidity, and that sort of strange savory aspect - bordering on salty soy sauce. The exhale coats my mouth with a nice remnant of citrus and tropical forward hops, but not enough to cover the umami aspects. Not bad, but not loving it.

Pitch black pour with a tight tan head. Very piney aroma with white grapefruit, roasted malts and a hint of smokiness. Flavor matches the aroma perfectly with a bitter sweet chocolate ending. Medium plus bodied with smooth carbonation

ljthiessen (750) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a thick beige head. Fairly mild aroma, some roasty malts and bright citrus showing through, a bit of creamy chocolate. Taste is big bright citrus with a crisp bitter edge, but supported by rich, roasty malt, fairly thick texture and a bit of a creamy chocolate finish. More fruity as it warms. A really nice black IPA with a lot of body and a good balance.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2015
On tap at The Ginger Man, NY. An almost black one, topped by a finger-thick, dense, light beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with pine cones, orange zest and resins. It’s full-bodied and semi-dry with a nice carbonation level and flavors of light roasted malts, zest and pine cones and a nice bitterness. Lightly roasted hop dominated finish. Quite lovely this one, more focused on the hops than the malts, which is the way I like it. 150624

Bottle. Pours black with a foamy beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Flavor of dark malts, pine, roast, citrus fruit, grapefruit and some light chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry finish.
