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.

mansquito (4447) - 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.

nearbeer (4379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2014
500 ml. bottled on 02-04-14. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of creamy bubbles. Big aroma of grapefruit zest followed by some resin and mocha. Tastes of fresh grapefruit with a slather of unsweetened dark chocolate, orange zest and dark roasted coffee bean. Long finish is mocha and dry oats. Near-medium body has too much carbonation and it fizzes up in the mouth a bit, but definitely keeps things from getting sticky. Above all, there’s a great balanced flavor and no overly-acidic finish from too much roast as some recent BIPAs have done to me.

rumproasts (4290) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
bottle. Deep brown with one finger head. Rich chocolate malt. Much less roasty than most other Black IPAs I’ve had, which is a nice change. Excellent hops. The flavors here are excellent, and yet I find myself with taste fatigue by the end of the bottle. I can’t get into this style no matter how hard I try.

tom10101 (4229) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Black with a medium creamy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, resinous, tropical fruits and caramel. Taste is slightly sweet with roasted malt, pine, tropical fruits, caramel and a light bitter finish. Medium body. Slightly dry. Average carbonation. Good Black IPA. A tad watery on the finish, but well balanced and drinkable aplenty. I preferred Another One though.

boFNjackson (4192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured black with a thin, khaki head. Some good retention. Aroma of awesomely dank, earthy, pine-like hops. Hop notes similar in the flavor with a good balance of roast and malt sweetness. Bright citrus, cocoa, roast, mild tobacco note too.

callmemickey (3891) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Dark brown body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Pine, citrus, roast, a little earth and chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate carbonation, slight awkward finish as the malt and hops try to work things out with each other.
