JulienHuxley (3460) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3435) - 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.

TheEpeeist (3400) - 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.

Elwood (3336) - 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.

SrSilliGose (3269) - 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...

JStax (3234) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2013
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.

rumproasts (3232) - 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.

reggiedunlop (3217) - 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.

auerbrau (3178) - 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.
