Pours black into a tulip. Fluffy mocha head with god retention recedes leaving spider lacing to crater surface. Chocolate and tropical fruit aromas. Thin with sweet chocolate and resin upfront turning to espresso in the lasting finish.

dmac (5387) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2014
500ml bottle purchased atSpirits Point. Poured a black medium body under an average sized to larger foamy dark beige head. Aroma is very solid, notes of chocolate, roasted citrus fruit, pine, brown bread. Palate is solid, with a medium body, aversge carbonation and slightly syrupy. Flavor of chocolate syrup, citrus, roasty, burnt toast, roasted nut shells, dry pine needles. Good stuff.

jkwood04 (5244) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 21, 2013
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours almost black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice dark and caramel maltiness. Flavor the same with a good blend and a characteristic hoppiness of Maine Beer. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.

mansquito (5110) - 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.

tom10101 (5073) - 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.

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.

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.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Big head Todd on dark brown beer. Aroma is more hops than malt. Malty brown ale with nice hops but unfortunately the Maine chemical edge to the flavour. The most unique "house" aspect I have found in a beer. Comes across as cool but….

rumproasts (4832) - 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.

nearbeer (4783) - 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.
