UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Draft at Churchkey. Beautiful black pour with a medium-sized off-white head. Nose and flavor are fully rife with earthen loam and rich pine and spruce bitterness, hints of pink grapefruit and lemon rind, and beautiful chocolate and roasty bitterness. Smooth and flavorful throughout the taste. Not quite as vibrant as my favorites of the style (Shaun Hill), but that’s a tall order, and this is an outstanding brew.

Pint bottle from Andersonville wine and spirits. Pour is extremely dark brown with a huge brown head. More lacing than I’m used to. Aroma is pine hops on the front with a beautiful chocolate and caramel back. Truly exceptional smell. A bit more alcohol in the first sip than I wanted. Pine and molasses with some Bourbon barrel. This is good, but the nose deserves more flavor. Would drink again, happily.

Hop aroma is moderate with a citrus pine character, but is overpowered by notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavor has an acidic bite with again notes of citrus and pine hops with chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. There is an astringency noticeable on the backend. Overall, the roasted malts are a little too strong and there is an unpleasant acidic bite to the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from WF, C’ville. Deep brown pour with an elegant creamy tan head. Maine have some of the best looking beers in the business. Nose is rich and inviting. Peppery hops. Pine. Hints of mandarin orange. Muscular espresso and dark cocoa provide depth. The flavor is wonderfully balanced, nuanced. Rich creamy malty sweetness cut by citrus hoppiness. Woody, dry finish. Medium body, somewhat oily. Effervescent carbonation. A real winner.

Another strong offering from Maine Beer; good standard 'beer' smell but nothing that stood out. Same with the flavor, but part of that is not my overall favorite style right now

Very lightly carbonated. Moderate roast, but it’s there. Low bitterness. I’d enjoy drinking a few of these.

Good black ipa, the extra malt gives balance to the hops, giving a well balanced beer
