50cl bottle from Andersonville Wine & Spirits, with a 31114 bottle date - fresh - for my 50th black IPA rating! Pours coal-like black with a brown spongey, root beer float, head leaving a lot of lace. Aroma has all citrus hops up front, even from 2 feet away. Further nose is of black patent hops and coffee, but the peachy/citrus and grassy hops lead. Very nice! Taste is of sweet caramel, some roast, oranges, bakers chocolate, lightly, and the lightly bitter, lightly salty black malts. Smooth (oatmeal?) and medium bodied. Finishes in a terrific blend of bitter and sweet; bitter coffee/choc/citrus against the sweet caramel/fruit - lovely! This is a very nice one .... Definite fan of what Maine has been doing!

Bottle while hanging out with my son late night. Pours deep brown with lovely head and nice lacing. Despite being stuffy ingot a nice nose of cocoa and hops. Tastes of piney hops, grapefruit, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and herbs. Creamy yet bitter mouthfeel. Another winner from Maine.

Onw of the best Dipas Ive had wirh a solid balance of hops and roasted malts. dark black body with a frothy beige head and fluffy lacing blotches. The nose is roasted and fruity with tons of espresso and grapefruit notes opposing each other. Great balance overall with a lingering bitterness of grapefruit and heavily roasted malts.

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Bottled 14 Feb 2014. Deep black pour with a large mocha coloured head that clings all the way to the end. Aromas of resiny, piney hops, coffee, toffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is predominately bitter, roasted malts, roasted coffee beans with the piney hops biting through, too. Lively carbonation, giving am oily, slick medium mouthfeel. Long, dry, bitter roasted coffee aftertaste. A nicely done Black IPA!

Bottle, black velvety pour with two fingers of thick tan head. Big hoppy aroma, mixed in with citrus and roasted malts. Taste, soft mouthfeel, lots of roast up front, followed by some bitterness and citrus like notes, leaves a thick coffee/roast aftertaste. Really well done!

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Big head Todd on dark brown beer. Aroma is more hops than malt. Malty brown ale with nice hops but unfortunately the Maine chemical edge to the flavour. The most unique "house" aspect I have found in a beer. Comes across as cool but….

Black IPA you say...... sigh this style is never good. Pours like an stout, dark brown with a thick creamy cap floating on top. Fall on my ass suprised this smells good. Sweet citrus upfront, candied peach mixing with cold coffee, both destinct and layered on each other. Best black IPA I’ve ever smelt. Taste is also epic for the style. Reminds me of a porter hoped massivly with peachy hops. I can drink the crap out of this. Pretty simple really. Cold coffee shows up but stays tame. Best Black IPA ever.
