BeerandBlues2 (10531) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy and particulate black with a medium, creamy beige head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy, minty, and herbal hops, dates, raisins, and prunes with coffee and roast malt. Flavor is dark fruits, dark malt, lightly tart, moderate hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Garrold (2237) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Very dark, clear chestnut brown. Thin, filmy, tan head. Minty, fruity, bonfire toffee. Taste is toffee sweet, before a lovely, chewy, light liquorice, citric pithiness takes hold. Light chew and light oiliness on the palate. Any roast bitterness waits until the end. Very nice.

glennmastrange (2381) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted and molasses, moderate pine resin for the hops, light soap for the yeast with tar and licorice in the background. Head is huge, frothy turning rocky, tan with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, watery with a soft carbonation and a bit of a sticky finish. Deep, dark aromas prelude to perfect Black IPA flavors.

Aroma of roasted malts, pine, grapefruit, citrus, bit of coffee, hops. Flavour is roasted malts, fruity sweetness and hoppy. Finish is dry and bitter. More on the IPA side of Black IPA.

Benderone (49) - FRANCE - MAR 27, 2014
Bière sombre, joli col de mousse blanc cassé, stable et abondante. Nez fruité et résineux. Carbonation moyenne. Le palais est lisse, légérement torréfié, belle amertume, finale assez sèche. Bière sympa.

Very Malty; roasty/burnt malts, caramel, chocolate, some espresso coffee, hint of liquorice. Great hop/fruit/malt balance. Bitter hops and roasty malts throughout. Dry bitter finish. Good Stuff. Classy Black IPA!

b3shine (6246) - Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks decent; a murky chocolate with thin off-white/very light beige head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of dark malt and bitter hops with a bit of booziness. Tastes like it smells with a bit of dark chocolate too. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.
