Fresh bottle. Bang on black IPA. The roastiness lasts as aftertaste a day later. Black and roasty aroma. Good drinkability.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Half liter bottle from Beer Run. Pours a near black color with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus hops, roast and chocolate. The taste is intense roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, with a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, decent balance. Another great beer from these guys.

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of dark roast, pine, burnt coffee, burnt chocolate malt and citrus rind. Medium body. A touch chalky.

GT2 (8509) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
500mL thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours a deep black, huge grayish head. Rocky, great retention. Nose is grilled pineapple, savory meat, smoke, au poivre steak. Taste is juicy grilled pineapple, bitter cocoa nib, powerful dark chocolate. Powerful hop presence. No less than awesome from this very talented brewery.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Rich coffee, dark chocolate and pumpernickel bread moments are emboldened by precise piney and earthy hopping, creating a somptuous Black IPA/Stout middle world.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam covers the blackness.
-There is no sense of abv in the flavor profile.
-The finish is quite roasty and coniferous.
-Mouthfeel is luxurious yet not too heavy.

Bottle.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark brown with 3-finger clingy tan head. Nose was heavy resiny hops, roasty choc malt, cacao. Tastes roasty choc malty, with resiny hops, charred malt at mid-palate, and a hoppy almost tart finish.

crossovert (7565) - Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Smells almost exactly liek another one aside form a nice hit of roast. Color is different, obviously dark brown with a frothy tan head as opposed ot the lighter counterpart. The mouthfeel is sparkly yet maybe slicker. Flavor has a huge chocolate component which may or may not coincide wiht the hops depending in your palate.

Scopey (7057) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Leighton at the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting. It pours near black with a gigantic light tan head. The nose is roasty, toast, chocolate, light ash, dark fruit, cocoa, caramel and toffee. The taste is roasted malt, toasty, very bitter, peppery, dark chocolate, earthy, resin, charcoal and coffee grinds with a dry, damn bitter finish. Medium body, moderate+ carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good body. A big, tasty Black IPA. Another win for Maine Beer Co.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy, just inside the best before date. Near black pour topped by a lively brown head. Smells like a pine forest, coniferous perfumes permeate the air. Very hop-forward profile, tons of fresh pine, underlying roast malts are there if you’re looking. Full bodied, very bitter. Beautiful.

mcberko (6702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
500mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours black with a thick, lingering tan head. Nose reveals dense notes of roasted malts, piney hops, chalk, and dry unsweetened powdery cocoa. Flavour is similar, bringing out a great mix of roasted malt and piney hops, dry cocoa, some espresso, and chalk. Very dry palate, maintaining a great balance between roast and hops. Excellent stuff.
