September 9, 2014 - shared by J&K with me and blankboy. 500ml bottle. Inky black pour, smallish lasting frothy tan head. Lovely roast and herbal bitter aroma taste follows, but a little stale and milky. Average body, light carbonation, medium bitter finish - I am not a huge fan of the style, but this is pretty solid - and past its best before date too!

50cl bottle pours a translucent, mahogany, basically black with some clumpy head that is both white and beige, mixed. Nose of chocolate, cupcakes, dried orange peel, toast, light licorice. Flavor is meaty, malty, toast, coffee grounds, some orange peel, light smoke. Medium bodied, dry finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
In short: A highly roasted and very hoppy (citrusy piney) Black IPA. Good example of the style.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed fresh soon after purchase.
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head with good retention and leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is unmistakably Black IPA with roast, chocolaty notes and a whole lots of citrusy and piney hops. As it is often the case with Black IPAs I found the mix of roast and hops created something a bit perfumy. In mouth the beer has a full body, a somewhat grainy texture and a very active carbonation. Taste is scorched malts, burnt black cake, notes of chocolate, an assertive hopping (citrusy & piney). High roast level contributes to a rather dry finish. Maybe a little too roasted but I’m nitpicking, this is a fine Black IPA. January 1rst, my first rating of the year, I am wishing myself great beer year and also that my dyselxia gets better in 1041.

czar (5986) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
drank shortly after another one (both really fresh). pours very dark brown with a creamy tall dark beige head, excellent retention and strong lacing. intense chocolatey, milk chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, burnt malts, dark roastiness along with big citrusy and piney notes, never too piney though although medium roastiness seems to enhance that aspect. also maple syrup with your strong morning coffee breakfast - some sweetness indeed. average carbonation, medium body - oily and almost syrupy, grassy-citrusy, lightly piney and relatively short finish. not your average drinkable bipa but it certainly is complex and juicy fresh in its own way!

jackl (5916) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle from WF, C’ville. Deep brown pour with an elegant creamy tan head. Maine have some of the best looking beers in the business. Nose is rich and inviting. Peppery hops. Pine. Hints of mandarin orange. Muscular espresso and dark cocoa provide depth. The flavor is wonderfully balanced, nuanced. Rich creamy malty sweetness cut by citrus hoppiness. Woody, dry finish. Medium body, somewhat oily. Effervescent carbonation. A real winner.

Pailhead (5803) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Courtesy of tectactoe Bottle: The aroma conssts of moderate-heavy citrus/grapefruit hops, pine, light-moderate chocolate, and light roast. It pours a dark brown with some faint orange highlights with a small light brown head that eventually fades to a thin film. There is some nice lacing rings left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and light roast. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit and lighter pine. It?s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Overall, another Black IPA that I consider to be a hoppy Porter...a very tasty hoppy Porter.

Very decent beer. Pours pitch black with great head and lacing. Some piney hops, bitter dark chocolate and lighter roast flavours. Medium bitter finish. Average carbonation, and a cool palate for a lighter stout. Tap at brewery.
