A black I.P.A brewed with dark and roasted malts

Hop on the train and enjoy the rich malty flavor. The ride begins with a rich dark color and ends with a hoppy finish. We are sure you will return for another ride.

Serviceable, drinkable, black IPA twist top from Champane’s Cellars. Black colour with lots of lace. Moderate roast aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Good hops, the roast is somewhat rough. Not the best black IPA, but still a good second tier.

I should enter another beer, as this is bourbon barrel aged. Hoppy and boozy with enough flavor to flat out kill it with flavor. Pretty good brew from an unknown brewery. Awesomeness!

I like the fat that they use both the malts and the hops for bitteness. Isn’t a funky mish mash of flavors.

bottle - Pours brown with a roasted malt and slight citrus aroma. It’s moderately bitter with a roasted malt backbone that lends it a medium body. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pour is a dark brown with a massive tan head and aromas of chocolate and citrus and herbal hops. Flavor is chocolate malt from start to finish with interludes of lemons and oranges and herbal hops mixed in throughout. It’s much better after it sits for a while.

On tap at Uccellos. Almost black and clear with minimal head. Aroma and taste were definitely IPA floral and citrus. Background was roasted and not sweet malt.

On tap at Hopcat, pours a dark brown with an off white sopay head, the aroma has a tad bit of citrus on the nose but the malt came through more, the flavor has a nice hop bite on the front end with a malty and chocolate finish, pretty middle of the road for a Black IPA.

Pours a dark amber, almost black with a thin creamy tan head. The aroma is a little lacking, some roast malt is about it. The flavor though has some chocolate, caramel, just a hint of sugar and a bit of vanilla. The finish is dry and refreshing. Very well balanced.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Deep mahogany with an extra large rocky beige head. Aroma is dark and roasty with citrus, chocolate and grains. Taste is dark and roasty as well with caramel, chocolate and a nice citrus profile. Mild bitterness on the back end, probably the best Mt Pleasant to date.

Bottle. Pours a near black. Tan head. Very good lacing. Aroma of pine. Meium bodied. Thicker then I would have expected for this brewer. I was impressed. Very nice balance better sweet and bitter in the flavor. Appropriate bitter mouthfeel. Overall very impressed with this beer. Not crazy hoppy, but nicely balance and very drinkable. Would recommend.
