DocLock (9999) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
2014-10-09. Black body with a small creamy brown head. 3++ Aroma of celery and green leafy hops. Flavour is a pleasant melange of green hops and roast malt, with light caramel touches. Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Cellared longer than might have been wise but it is quite enjoyable. Bottle from forgotten bottleshop, NYC

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2013
16.9oz bottle, thanks to Sloth! Shared with local raters. Bottled 9/3/13. Dark brown, near-black color. Thin light brown head. Some loose bits of lace. Awesome earthy hop nose, some roast malt. Some dark chocolate, coffee. Good citrusy grapefruity pineapple hop character. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lightly soft carbonation, dry finish. Bigger bitter taste, minimal sweet. Great black IPA. Dry, bitter, complex. Delicious stuff.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s. Very dark dense looking pour with a huge brown fluffy head. Aroma is citrus and roast. Not as heavy on the tongue as it looks. Very tasty. Another winner from Maine.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a huge thick tan head. Big roasty cocoa and a lovely citrus hop note, soft and delicate. Medium bodied, big cocoa and roasty malt. Lots of dark chocolate notes, cocoa and some spicy hop resins. Big cocoa over a long quinine and grapefruit filled bitterness. Lovely.

DuffMan (9543) - 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.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2013
500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm, who got it from sloth- thanks again, Chris and Bert! Bottled 9/3/13. Pours a deep, opaque brown with a big rocky tan head that laces the glass. Aroma of earthy, piney hops, roasted and toasted malts, dark chocolate, and leaves. The flavor pretty much follows suit. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, toasty, dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice black IPA.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2015 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.
-Citrus angles can be enjoyed here and there.
