Tap at naked city. Black. Aroma of pine, roasted malts, chocolate. Flavor wasnít quite as hoppy as i was expecting. Itís a stout backbone with a little pine. Good black IPA but has room for improvement. Felt the 7% but didnt taste it. Well, after reading the other reviews itís quite obvious that NC reused the name for a different style after a few years off. Itís a black ipa now.

Roasted malts on the nose as well as light winey notes and some lactic tartness. Rather straightforward. Pours dark brown, more or less black, thin tannish ring around the edges. Flavor is moderately tart and lactic, red winey notes underneath and roasty dry dark maltiness to round out the finish. Light lingering tart and dry. INteresting, lightly carbonted, smooth and full bodied. Unique.

Draft at NCBC. Pours jet black with no head or lace. Nice dark roasty balsamic malt vinegar nose. Very appealing. Canít remember ever hearing of a sour impy before, but this is a stroke of genius. Fairly flat body, but has some heft to it. Mostly balsamic and malt vinegar mixed across the mid palate, with a bit of roast lurking around the edges. Very appealing sour.

Pours black, with a thin tan head. Smells not much different than a traditional stout, with chocolate and molasses dominating. You can just tell thereís some cherry coming through the dark roasted malts. The flavor, though, takes a significant leap toward sour, adding quite a pucker. Lots of cherry, and just a touch of red wine behind the sweet roasty malts. Needs a bit of time for the flavors to blend, but this is tasty!
