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.

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 (5071) - 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.

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, Iím not a big fan. Taking a gritty, smoky porter and adding some hoppy flourish just doesnít gel with me. This also has a bit too much air in it. (#6043, 10/10/2015)

nuplastikk (5257) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Deep unfiltered brown-black body. Steady, foamy rusty beige head. Not much of an aroma, sort of muted. OK for what it is, pretty down the middle, straightforward...which is a good thing here. A solid Black IPA.

ajnepple (4074) - Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2015
12 oz via bottle on Phish lot at Dickís. Aroma of dark malts, roast, coffee, light chocolate and earthy hops. Nicely balanced flavor. Smooth, dark and tasty overall.

Beergaard (242) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2015
Not overwhelming but still pretty good. The strong hop pressence and the subtle roastyness works quite well together.

CObiased (155) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12oz bottle - pours thick and black with a thin head. The aroma is a combination of cocoa roastiness and citrus bitterness. A mouthful is medium bodied. Nice flavors of roasted grains, chocolate and burnt toast open to bitter pine, and strong citrus rind.

Livendadream (176) - New Mexico, USA - APR 5, 2015
Btl pours an opaque dark brown color, almost black really. Huge fluffy tan head that lingers for a while leaving tons of lace on glass. Aromas of pine,grapefruit , lemon zest, molasses and a wisp of toasted bread. Tastes of citrus, roasted grains, buscuit,caramel and pine. Medium body, lively carbonation,tingling yet soft mouthfeel and a semi dry, lightly bitter finish. This is a nicely balanced beer. The alcohol is hidden very well also. It is hard to believe this is rated at 100 IBUs. The hop flavors are very mellow, making this beer very easy to consume.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours black, thick, and opaque. Tan head, good lacing, nice appearance overall. So i made a black ipa that was similar to this, but theirs is better, quite honestly. The mouthfeel is closer for the style, not creamy but close. Long aftertaste and pronounced hoppiness. They say itís closer to a porter, i disagree. It does its own style well.
