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.

The style heavily limits my enjoyment of this beer, but it’s got a nice piny aroma reminiscent of being in an evergreen forest and a slight almost minty quality. I’m still not a fan of black IPAs but this is a good one.

Pretty good, but I get a clash of flavors between what I think is black patent malt & hops. Sharp. It’s still pretty good butthe clash is obvious.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Nose is malty, spicy, plummy. Taste really nice of caramel, dark berries, plums and brown sugar. Nice creamy texture. Well done.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a hazy medium brownish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s (5/5/15). Fresh hoppy nose, floral and resiny. Smoky chocolate malt with some heavy aromas. Very fragrant. Dark black-brown opaque with light tan creamy lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with light tang, big hop flavor with chocolate and roasted malts. Molasses, coffee. Sweet tangy resin-like finish with roasted bitter after.

Roasted malt, slight fruit (grape) sweetness, with an underlying bitterness. Earthy tones. Dark chocolate color with a big tan foamy head. Nice lacing. Medium weight with mild carbonation.

Tessic (1045) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
This black IPA poured a nice black colour with a really foamy, tan coloured head. Scents include grass, spruce and roasty malts. First swig was nice and roasty with a good balance between hop and roast. Finish was medium bitter with nice grassy notes lingering with the burntness...

Too damn piney. Tastes like a dark IPA or something. But hey, I don't like traditional IPAs so there's that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #1275 - 07.10.2014 - On tap @revolutionyeg. Pours a California back alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the hoppy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.
