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.

Nice chalky malty dark beer with a nice head. Sweet and burnt flavors. Toasted. A nice brew for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Pub & Grub in Angel Fire, NM. Opaque, brown-black with a thin khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and earthy hops. Taste of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and earthy hops. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Raven Cafe in Prescott. Black color, beige head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of pine cones dipped in coffee. Taste is very roasty pine. Delicious.

Hits the style and very drinkable though biased to the hoppy side and higher carbonation. At the source.

the best part of this IPA is that it doesn’t feel real heavy. It’s definitely more roasted than their main IPA but the hop flavor is still enjoyable. The rare black IPA that my wife liked too.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2015
This is an awesome black IPA. Big black pour with a foamy brown/tan head. Nice lacing. Foams up again nicely if you swirl the glass a bit. Big roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee flavours but the bitter hoppiness and pine still manage to shine through. Very smooth and well balanced.

pintbypint (3267) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
12oz brown bottle. Deep brown pour, creamy tan head that is sticky. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate with a little hop presence. Taste - heavy dark chocolate with some weetness, roasted malt. The aftertaste is chocolate and roasted malt with mild hops, a little citrusy hop there. Soft texture, light mouthfeel. Pretty good, pretty balanced and goes down easily.

reebtogi (5397) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of tan head that settles to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with bold citrus and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness and notes of coffee in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a well crafted and well balanced brew that tastes great. Recommended.

patricks110 (2376) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2015
I like it but predictable. Pours a dark opaque black with a thin beige head. No carbonation. Rich and a bit sweet with light vanilla and cocoa with a pinch of espresso. Nicely done overall with a light metallic and citrus heavy bitterness. Rich and hoppy!

Bottle. My second "black IPA" in as many days, and my impression of this recent phenomenon remains unchanged, I’m not a big fan. Taking a gritty, smoky porter and adding some hoppy flourish just doesn’t gel with me. This also has a bit too much air in it. (#6043, 10/10/2015)
