PhillyCraft (3697) - 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.

Black pour from bottle. Huge chocolate and cocoa taste. Coffee too. Smooth but still a pretty hoppy beer. Really enjoyable

HonkeyBra (3643) - 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 Iíve ever had.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
0.5l bottle from Good Beers NYC. There is no reference to this being a #2,but itís bottled 11.06.2013 so itís 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 Iíve had from Maine has been) and it has a dry chocolate paper thing that Iím 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

tom10101 (3576) - 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.

MrChopin (3575) - 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.

rumproasts (3575) - 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 Iíve 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 canít get into this style no matter how hard I try.

TheEpeeist (3462) - 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.

Bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a darker brown to black with a khaki head. Aroma is pine, caramel, licorice, and dough. Tastes the same. Good stuff.
