PhillyCraft (3222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle with Frank and Barry. Pours dark brown with light to medium head, good lacing. Aromas are tropical hops, roasty dark malt, light chocolate, pine. Taste is peanuts, citrus hops, char, minerals. Nice beer but more "another one" would have been a better idea. Roasty malts are just played, make it a hoppy porter or just stick to dank pales and single ipas.

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.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 4, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle with a bottled on date of 02- 04- 2014. Paid $5.99 at Carl’s Meat Market, Kittery. Thick tan head that receded slowly over the pitch black brew. Nose is roasted malt, pine and floral hops. The flavor is not overly bitter and balanced nice with, roasty, and chocolate malt’s and a touch of ash. Hints of ground coffee, and floral and pine hops in the finish. Medium bodied with a real drying mouthfeel. Really nicely crafted.

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours black with a frothy dark tan head, looking very stout like. The nose is a mix of pine needles and dark roasted malt notes with a hint of chocolate. The flavor starts with those roasted notes leading me to believe I have a stout in my hand. Slight burnt notes, chocolate, a hint of coffee. Along comes the heavy pine needle and resin notes, quickly erasing any doubt about this not being a black IPA. Medium to full bodied on the tongue with a lasting bitter finish. Hoppy stout? Black IPA? Call it what you want to, I’ll call it delicious.

Bottled 02042104 - thanks JBPortland! Pours dark black with a creamy medium tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine, roasted malts. Flavor is citrus and pine forward with distinct roasty toffee notes coming in the middle. Light sweet, medium bitter, nice balance of roasty and hoppy. Medium body, silky mouthfeel, presumably from the oats. Quite a tasty beer!

SpringsLicker (3132) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Aroma has roast malt accompanied by pine hops. The roast malt is held back in the flavor, allowing this to become a black IPA. The roast malt is there, but not in a way that this makes you think it’s a stout.

ReggieDunlap (3071) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours deep brown with a thick mocha head...nice lacing. Aroma has some citrusy hops, touch of pine, roastiness. Flavor has some dark cocoa, burnt bitterness, pine, citrusy hops, a touch of coffee. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry burnt espresso bitter finish lingering to piney.

JulienHuxley (3046) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very pretty opaque black with a lasting lacy thick brown foam. Aroma is quite chocolaty, light roasty notes, characteristic Maine Beer Co hopping, grapefruit. Taste is an intense shot of bitter dark chocolate and hops, but both flavors are rather well equaled and present something more like a generously hopped stout than a darkened IPA. Palate is creamy and satisfying. Good.
