COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Demo is a deliciously dark lick of an India Pale Ale. It’s medley of roasted malts and heady hops will have your senses dancing to the beat of a different IPA.

I was intrigued by this, a black IPA. Tastes like a hoppy porter to me. I think it’s a fine variety and a pretty cool style. I thought the palate was a bit thin, but maybe because I’m kind of comparing it to a porter. I like it and will buy again. Prost!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle from the spring sampler. Pours a dark brown color with a medium frothy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roast and earthy hops. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, earthy hops and a bit of a leathery note. Medium bodied. Not bad, but more like a porter than a Black IPA.

BrewBoxer (2063) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle. Dark vblack color. Smells of coffee and lemon. Tatse is mocha with hops. Almost like a porter but more mild and watery. Not the best black ipa, but not bad

Fratto (2629) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle from pikapp327’s big brother. Dark pour with a big tan head. Lots of floaters. Aroma is roasted pineapples and grapefruit. Taste is sour chocolate, old bread, and charcoal.

Johnroy (38) - Ringwood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Pours black, with yellowish head. Thoughtis it would taste heavy. It does not. Light taste with a porterish style yet a different aftertase than a porter. Good beer. They should realease as a six pack!

Cavie (3808) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a dark maroon brown color with a muddy, murky appearance. Tannish head. Aroma is sweet malts with sugary syrup notes. Lots of hops in this as well. Floral and citrus. Flavor is very roasted with toasted bready characteristics. Different to say the least. Bitter burnt finish.

Opaque black, with medium brown head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor is roasty malt with subtle bitter hop finish. Light bodied, smooth. Originally took this for a Schwarzbier.

BREWMUSKCLES (2266) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
it has an initial flavor of hop and dark fruit like plum and prune with a touch of cherry. this morphs into a hoppy brew with some acrid smoke and coffee with a touch of chocolate. palate is a bit light, caustic and frothy. the finish is moderate in length. this is a good take on the style but a little light in the pants. and normally i like the bigger girls! still good.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
12oz bottle pours black with dark khaki head. Aromas of roasty malt hop resin and chocolate upfront, some piney citrus rine in backround. Taste is bitter but flavorfull. Body is full and creamy very palatable. Finish leaves you with a chocolate milk feel similer to a guinness maybe thats why i like this so much

It sure takes you by surprise when you read IPA and no other information on the bottle, then pour out a slightly hazy dark brown liquid. As expected, citrus hops dominate the aroma, but only bitterness can shine through the thick haze of darker beer. Not my favorite, or even worthy of approval.
