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.

Bottle from Rick G. of Lardo. Colour...onyx black with a thick tan head. Nose...very hoppy while also being very roasty toasty. Palate...frothy, bitter, and roasty with ashen chocolate, burnt wheat toast and hop dust. The mid palate is quite bitter and the finish is quite dry and long.

zgaier (1673) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2015
On tap at The Owl Bar in Brooklyn. Pours black with a brown head and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is of hops, citrus, roasted malt, and pine notes into the bitter, dry finish. Delicious black IPA

Pours black with an off white head. Strong grass hop aroma. Taste is a good balance of roast and hops. Really dry. Sensing a pattern at this point in their beers.

jb (2538) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Thick and dark, not highlights seen. Thick tan head, thick retention and lace. Smell was meh. Hoppy and malty, weird, unappetizing. Palate and taste totally works though and saves this. Thick palate ends with an explosion of chocolate.

tekstr1der (147) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Deep dark pour with clingy brown foam. Aromas of cedar, smoke, and malt. Flavors are mellow and extremely balanced. Nice toastiness, combined with mild hop citrus/pine, and slight smoky hint. Great dark ale, incredibly smooth.

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Poured from a 500 mL bottle poured into Spiegelau stemmed glass. Appearance is deep dark brown with a good khaki head that lingers. Aroma is toasty roasted grains, burnt caramel; citrus, pine and slight dank. Taste is roasted grains, coffee, caramel and slight earthy smokiness. Palate is medium body, creamy feel. Overall a great beer, good all around combination of flavors and aromas and texture.

Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, light chocolate, coffee. Taste is balanced hoppy and coffee bitter with a mellow sweet chocolate finish that ends in roasted coffee. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation. One of the best black IPAs I’ve had.

jflopsu (838) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Pours black with thick tan head. Has a sweet citrus, cocoa, and coffee aroma. Has a strong flavor of citrus hops, pine, malt, coffee, and chocolate. Leaves a lingering bitter hop taste.

GIJOE (968) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Pours like stout; thick, black, and buried in frothy cappuccino-colored foam. Excellent retention. Nose is an immediate reminder that this is NOT a stout, but an IPA. Citrus hop nose with bold roasted grain notes. Taste is bitter and fades off to a burnt grain finish. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Delicious brew!

Bottle from thepatrickman-thanks! Opaque black brown with lots of carbonation. Medium body. Nose is roast charred malts, coffee, resinous hops. Bitter pine, dark and burnt roast malts. Nails it for the style for me. About 3 months of age on this one and still loads of bitter hops on the finish. Fresh might have been too much for me.
