FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured an almost black color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was floral and roasty. The flavor was dry, floral, roasty and very bitter with a touch of vanilla. The finish was long, dry, roasty and floral. Medium body. Typical for style meaning it sucked.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On draught at Galloís Tap Room. The beer pours dark brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of roasted malt, piney hops and caramel. The finish is sweet with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

bwa5879 (813) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Black pour with short white head. Sweet scent. Smells kind of like brownies. Thin body in my opinion. Lot of bitter taste. Burnt flavor, not very complex. Disappointing. Dry bitter aftertaste.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a rich deep, deep brown black color. A tall dense head sits on top and it leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Dry hopped, the aroma sports a fresh,oily hop aroma of citrus with plenty of but sutle roasted malts. Taste, one finds roasted malts. The feel on the palette is smooth but also flat with a dry semi-bitter finish. Solid yes but lacks. Lacks in depth of flavor.

ccex (1074) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2012
22 oz. bottle pours an opaque black with a git of red if held to a light. Moderate beige head lingers and makes a bit of lacing. Nose is mostly piney and citrus hops. Aroma also includes dark chocolate and lots of roasted malts. Taste is sweet at first, before the hoppy finish kicks in, with a bit of lingering walnuts. Body is medium without too much carbonation. An enjoyable black IPA Iím glad to have tried.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2012
a solid black IPA as this isnít really my style. good balance with some roasted without burnt notes and the hops. A bit lacking on the good hop aromas with unbalanced bitterness.

tmongoose (1672) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2012
22oz bottle pours black with off white head that disappears quickly leaving some lacing on the glass you get the aroma of roasted malts and hops. more of a citrus hop than anything else. the flavor comes from a medium bodied beer strong in hops up front and on the back the roasted malt is underscored throughout...not bad but not great.

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a globe glass. Pours opaque black with a two and half finger off-white head. The aroma of pine, citrus rind and roasted malt, although a bit more understated rises from the glass. Pine and citrus rind dominate the opening of this brew which transitions to a mild dark chocolate roastiness, and then finishes dry with citrus-like bitterness and a touch of roasted malt. Adequate carbonation, lighter-medium bodied brew. Iíve had Black IPAís I liked more, but Iíve also had some I didnít like as much. A solid, tasty brew.

rubbishystuff (2028) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2012
At Rockwellís By no means a hop bomb but decently hopped. A little lighter in body than some other IPA but not in a bad way. Some roasted flavor and some coffee flavor. Decent stuff. Serving: Tap

Bottle. Pours black with off white head. Nose/taste of resin, pine, cocoa, roasted malt and grassy hops. Medium body. Finishes with dry pine and dark roast bitterness.
