sonnycheeba (3357) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours opaque black with thick, creamy tan head. Aroma is earthy and pine hops, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and some woody notes. Flavor is dry, roast malts forward quickly followed by rich hop bitterness and some dried dark fruit; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

TheEpeeist (3283) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2013
16.9 oz bottle. Surprising dark pour with a thick tan head. Nose is mostly the same as Another; gin and tonic with a wedge. Hints of musk, pine and melon. Substantial medium body, maybe too much for the style. Resiny with a brisk buzz. Taste is broiled grapefruit and peel, coffee, anise, tobacco and pine. Interesting take but not my favorite style.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($8.25): Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is citrus hops, piny hops, smoky, roasted malts. Taste is a combination of the aforementioned. Dry smoky roast taste is coupled with sustained, but merely moderate, bitterness from the hops. The citrus doesn’t go over the top. In some sense, this could be considered merely a stout, but I think that there is enough IPA hoppiness to take it over the line. Body is very nice and creamy. Everything is well-balanced, perhaps more than the style normally allows.

HonkeyBra (3259) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brownish near black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of lots of strong hop notes, focusing on citrus, pineapple, and mango. Chocolate malt, mild roast aromas as well. Flavor is deliciously hoppy with mild roast and chocolate notes. Lots of tropical fruit and pine hop notes, not overly bitter but firmly bitter with well accompanying dark, roasty, and chocolate malts. Full creamy body, with nice thick texture. This is one of the best examples of a Black IPA I’ve ever had.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
0.5l bottle from Good Beers NYC. There is no reference to this being a #2,but it’s bottled 11.06.2013 so it’s as fresh as a mildly put fresh.. Pours a lovely looking deep dark brown body with a big really lacing and lasting light brown top. Smells amazing, lots of fresh green hops, a good amount of coffee, roasted malts and just plain old delicious. There is even a little bit of salty peanuts and ice cream in this. Could nose this for hours. Taking a sip i get a really spot on comfortable carbonation level with a smooth oily mouthfeel. Deliciously blended flavors with a good amount of coffee and bitter almost stingy fresh piney hops. Really balanced (as all the beers I’ve had from Maine has been) and it has a dry chocolate paper thing that I’m really enjoying right now. Roasted almost a little bit burned ashy finish, a little bit of minerals and soft dry mouthing in the aftertaste. Really tasty! 20.06.2013

SrSilligoose (3222) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
bottle. consumed soon after maine beer "another one", which, as the bottle indicates, has the same hop combo but clean soft toasted cracker malts. IPA was quite hop-centered. tasty deep dark roast, dark chocolate present in weez was nice and drank nice as well. tight roast character. grapefruit and tropical fruit hop well integrated. grate. again, wish this was @ 5% abv or so on this hot humid summer night. but hey, life throws you a bunch of curveballs then you die, so who cares? continuous effort...

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
black with thin cream head, consistent. Brownie and herb nose, balanced with some cake delicacy. Bit of playdoh marriage of stout and hops, otherwise excellent, balanced brownie cake with piney, resinous end, stings tongue. Rich body. Dense and delicious.

auerbrau (3152) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 20, 2013
500ml Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. As referenced in my Another One rating, I compared the two side by side. Let’s just say that this nicely crafted stout doesn’t do justice to hops. Oh sure, it tastes like a black IPA, like any Black IPA should, with that unique black malt twinge to a very grassy and pungent hop build, but it all builds together to taste like every other Black IPA, minus the mistakes. This is clean and fresh. Good, not great. Paired really well with clams steam southern Chinese-style.
