Black-brown in color with soft off-white head. Light sweet roast aroma. Sweet and subtley...hoppy-piney and strong but dominated by roast sweetness.

On tap @ Mother Road. Black in color with a small khaki head. Really piney, herbal nose. Some roast, sweet orange, and licorice. Slightly vegetal and malty. There’s a lot of caramel, roast, and licorice. Herbal, woody hop flavor and bitterness. Kind of an acidic finish on it. Not their best.

Bottle. Pours golden brown with solid white head that lingers. Nice grapefruit aroma over medium carbonation. Reasonable complexity in a tasty ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The look is dark, black in color, and a good tan head. The smell is coffee, roast, fruit, berries, ash, burnt, and pine. The taste is pine, roast, malt, burnt, hops, and good.

In a 12 oz bottle. Aroma of molasses. Flavors? No molasses. Instead roast toffee, coffee, some dark chocolate. Not sweet, not bitter, just balanced. Nicely balanced.

Draft. Black with ruby highlights. Sustained beige head. Not too bitter or too roasty. Smooth. Great balance all around. Really comes together well.

Pailhead (5073) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, roasted malt, citrus/grapefruit hops, and light coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a large tan head that has great retention and leaves behind some spotty soapy lacing. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate, lighter roasted malt, and a touch of caramel. The finish has roasted coffee, lighter citrus/grapefruit hops, and a touch of roasted nuts. It’s medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation. Overall, I’d throw this in the hoppy Porter category like most Black IPAs.

A quaffable imperial black IPA. Who ever thought those words would come together but it is true. Pours a dark viscous black with light brown lacing. Aroma is immediately a roast malt with coffee and bitter chocolate following as the hops kick in. Very light hop aroma but it works. The taste is foremost a caramel, roast hops and a light sweetness that is backed by a mellow balance from the bittering hops. It has a well balanced body and just enough carbonation to cleanse the most astringent part of the hops out. Would be closer to a cascadian dark ale or an imperial American dry stout.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 5, 2014. Received as a trade with jcwattsrugger. Thanks John. A black as night pour with a huge, foamy tan head. The aromas Are on the subtle side with the dark malts played up and the hops played down. But generally nicely balanced. Medium body. Some astringency. The taste tends to lean sweet and malty rather than hoppy but those earthy hops are there. Drinkable all around.

Deep black with thin white head. Excelent lacing. Not a huge aroma but a light bit of hops. Not overly hoppy but enough and just a bit of roast on the finish. Not as hoppy as others I have had but really nice.
