arminjewell (8749) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks to Aaron for the pour! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, slight orange, hints of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, chocolate, dark fruits, nice orange, biscuit roast, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice version of the style.

DocLock (8674) - 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.

MartinT (8661) - 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.

BVery (8186) - 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.

DuffMan (8169) - 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 (7825) - 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.
