Tap at Vine Street - black pour with a thick, lasting tan head - looks pretty amazing, actually - nose is deep roast, anise, chocolate, light smoke, woody hops - flavor is fairly similar to the nose - a lot.of anise and bitter chocolate from the malt, woody character from the hops, ending with deep roast and strong bitterness - marginal belgian character - very solid imperial black ipa.

Brouwerij (938) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Tap at Mtn Sun. Pours brown with fine khaki head, decent retention, thin lace. Aroma is hoppy and citrus on the nose, with big fruit and ester tones, banana, apple from the belgian yeast, overall smells quite sweet. Flavor is sweet, fruity, with a mildly hoppy, citrus, pine finish. Aroma and flavor don’t really match. Only the faintest hint of perceived roast. Soft carbonation, light body, and juicy texture. A decent Black IPA.

Sampled on tap at the Southern Sun in March. A really nice brew with a roasted malty base in the IPA. A rather enjoyable version of this beer type.

Steve_0 (2822) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at Vine Street. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a big khaki head and great lacing. Roasty, cocoa, somewhat spicy, grapefruity, orange peel, earthy, a touch herbal, and bready aroma. Taste is big roasty, bready, herbal, earthy, grapefruit, grass, somewhat spicy, coffee, and chocolate with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. I really dig the way the Belgian yeast intertwines with the toasty malt profile and juicy hops.

Tap @ Vine Street. Black appearance with a dark brown appearance. Quite roasty, dark chocolate, a bit piney aroma. Really a delicious roasty flavor with some dark chocolate, piney, earth, and plenty of coffee. Really an excellent beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2012
On tap at the Vine Street Pub in Denver, CO. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is dry roasts and juicy grapefruit pines with a solid chocolate backing and a few florals. Flavor is juicy grapefruit pines and a solid roast up front with a good amount of chocolate providing a moderate sweetness. A few florals in the middle as the hops remain fairly juicy and the roasts and chocolate keep things balanced. Finishes dry, roasty, and piney, but has a nice juicy citrus and chocolate sweetness. Medium bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste that follows a medium body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, a solid Black IPA. Well hopped with some juicier citruses, plenty of roasts, and a nice chocolate backing. Good beer.
