Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Opened just after the Cardinals winning the World Series. This is the ultimate gusher with foam erupting after opening and continuing even after some was poured. Thick sticky lacing. Roasted malt, molasses, and hop sourced citrus. The aroma is quite pungent. The flavor is all over the place. Spicy hops that offer citrus, molasses, roasted malt, earth, and licorice. This is very flavorful but I am not a fan. It is likely the style but big flavors collide and it is not my cup of tea. The sum is less than the parts with this one.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 4, 2011
22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Sean! Solid toasty Sinamar aroma. Man, all of these Black IPAs must have incredibly similar malt profiles, it’s really hard for any of them to be distinct. I think they’re all separated by cleanliness and subtle differences in texture. Blah, blah, blah, limey hops, dark malt, clean yeast. This is good and very drinkable. I enjoyed it a lot with my meal. If there were no other Black IPAs around and I was really craving the style, I would grab it, but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to find.
