COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When was the last time you found yourself trapped under the surface of the dark sea, entwined in the tendrils of the unseen forces of nature? With Evil Octopus, a black beer loaded with 8 hop additions (one for each leg of this magnificent beast), taste the inky black goodness that only the mouth of danger can provide, as you and the Evil Octopus mount an attack on your taste buds, coating them with a splash of currant, that heavenly floral aroma, and a 6.2% ABV that reminds you why dressed up like a pirate this morning.

Medium dark coffee brown that has the perfect balance of malt and hops. There is a smooth coffee/toffee taste with a wonderful citrus grapefruit flavor that works amazingly well. One of the best Black IPA’s I have had and possibly the best beer brewed in Middle Tennessee! Try this.

Draft 7/22/15 (Broadway Brewhouse-Franklin)-Pours black with a small head. Aroma of hops, malt, and slight chocolate. Taste of the same with a bit of coffee as well. This medium bodied brew was not bad.

Growler from sieglers. Supposed to be a black ipa but tasted more like an average stout.

Dark brown pour. Heavy carbonation and medium hops, with very little character on the finish.

decaturstevo (5696) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Hazy brown pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is light roasted malt and a touch of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt with an almost molasses kicker. A very good resiny-floral bitter finish. Medium body with food carbonation. A rich sweetness that I can’t put my finger on, still an ok drinker

keepersj12 (3019) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has a bit of chocolate and roast malts. The flavor is very bitter with lots of hop goodness. The finish is dry.

Sometimes I hate character limits. This was a good malty beer, smooth, but with a sourish finish.

Theydon_Bois (14958) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Keg at Flying Saucer, Nashville, 15/02/15. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent light tan covering. Nose is charr, spice, biscuit, trace of pine. Taste comprises bitter hops, spice, pine needle, earthy, light cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate CDA but not one to revisit for me.

wedgie9 (2544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Tasted on 1/17/15 on tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves average sticky lace. The nose is molasses, coffee, and pine resin hops, some dark bread. The flavor is a touch of molasses bread up front, moving to the nice resin and coffee bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter resin and roasted coffee finish.

Smoothest IBA I have ever had the pleasure of tasting! Coffee notes aren’t too heavy, floral aroma is perfectly blended with the roasty malts and extra hop addition!
