COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Skunk Ape Double Black IPA, the first beer in the Mogollon Monster Mash series. The skunk Ape, a large hairy, bipedal mammal, is closely akin to the famed Sasquatch. As a rule the creature’s appearance is usually preceded by a thick skunk-like odor, and it’s scream cuts the night air sending chills up the spine of all in ear shot. We brew this Double Black IPA as dark as midnight and stuff it full of hops. At 10% ABV and 83.44 IBU’s, you’ll enjoy your encounter with this Skunk Ape with a much more pleasing, slightly roasted and hoppy aroma, and may find yourself running screaming into the night for more.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Park Place) - Pours a deep brown color with a solid one finger thick tan head. very light spotty lacing. Aroma is toasted malt with hints of chocolate and herbal hops. Flavor is toasted malt, esters, and herbal hops. the malt lingers in the finish. Medium body. I expected more of a hop presence, still it was a good beer. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. A nice beer.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Andrew: Medium sized vast and slow disappearing creamy beige light tan head on top of a black colored beer. Smell hops, cream, malts, wet wood, herbs, milk, milk chocolate. Taste bitters, milk chocolate, chocolate milk, some toasted herbs, hops, toast, yeast, toasted barley malts and some milky chocolate spices. Aftertaste is nice floral with some chocolate, bitter, toasted barley malts and milk/milk chocolate. Low carbo, creamy texture, medium to full body and a creamy texture.

Pours black with a nice cream colored head and great lacing. Aroma is an interesting blend of fruit, coffee, and chocolate. Citrus taste up front followed by chocolate and coffee. Slight alcohol in the finish. Coffee aftertaste. Very interesting and good overall.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a pitch black with a nice tan head. Aromas of malt, piney, cocoa, roasted and a tad smokey. Initial flavor is smooth, slightly bitter. Cocoa and roasted malt are up front with a nice piney hop bitterness finish, resiny and a touch of burnt. Mouthfeel is oily with slight stickiness. Not what I was expecting. At 10% the alcohol is well hidden. Not much of an IPA flavor at all, except for the pine hops. It’s definitely a good beer and worth a try, just a tad disappointed cause I was expecting a massive hoppy beer.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle:   Black, thin to moderate frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Citrus peel and roasted malt nose.   A little candied and sweet.   Pine, citrus pith and peel, with soft roasted malts on the tongue.   Had I not looked at the beer, had it in the dark, I might not think Black IPA at all.   Seems like a respectable Double IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Pale roast, stronger pith/peel citrus bits on the exit.   Mild to moderate sweetness.   Good quaffer!

22oz bomber pours very dark brown with thin tan head. The mild aroma offers up bits of black pepper, black licorice, spicy hops and chocolate. The taste is full malt forward with dark roasted malts, burnt malts and a firm level of chocolate malts. Around the edges of the malts I get some spicy hops, earthy hops and a good bit of spicy black licorice and a sense of spicy oak wood notes (in the absence of any wood treatment too). This is one interesting beer that doesn’t really fit into a style. The former one, Imperial Stout, likely fits best.
