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.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 Extremely piney citrus nose, almost like pinesol cleaner. Flavor has a citric bite, with underlying earthiness and hint of smoke. Dunno, maybe I was just in the mood for an ipa, but this was fantastic to me... Tried it again. Aroma is even better than I remembered. good earthy grounding. This is probably the best magic hat beer Iíve had...

Serve this one very chilled. Comes dark with a great forming head. Chocolate malt taste. Good overall.

First sip I took of this beer was out of a bottle, and I nearly spit. Drinking my second poured into a pint glass. Dark brown, almost black, in color. Would have been nice to know it was a black IPA. Roasty smell and taste, coffee-ish. Absolutely no hops on my tongue. Bitter coffee finish. Canít finish the bottle.

Black opaque color. Not as roasty as i would have expected given the color. Medium bitterness. Not terribly complex.

Blah. A boring black IPA. Aroma was weak. Light roasted malt presence with a hint of coffee. Pour was a deep dark brown that was very still and a one finger off white head. Taste was very thin and weak. There is a strong coffee and roasted malt backbone that never really lets any hops come in. Tastes more like a porter until the hoppy bitter aftertaste grabs the tonsils. Too little too late. Nice cabonation.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear light ruby with a thin off-white head, coffee and pine in the aroma, starts and ends bitter with a roasted grain aftertaste, medium bodied with a chewy mouthfeel.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Pours a very dark brown, tan head. Oh crap. I didnít realize this was a Black IPA. Smells like medium roast and burnt microwave extrabutter popcorn. Flavor of burnt popcorn. Ugh. Very little hop bitterness. Some burnt wood. Other wood too. Itís almost like chewing on a twig. Thinnish bodied. Blech. Iím really bummed out I have two more of these sitting in the fridge.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of dark malt, hops, pine, acetone, and chemicals. Poured dark brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of dark malt, hops, pine, acetone, and chemicals. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Dark malt, hop, pine, and acetone finish is dry.
