ericdevin (658) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours dark, semi-opaque. Light head, aroma rich and malty, toasty and just a little bit resinous. Medium body, finish is roasty at first and surprisingly long and resinous. Really opens up as the beer warms. A very subtle example of the style in terms of IBU and ABV, but not too shabby overall.

More emphasis on the black, less on the IPA. A nice drink, regardless. Good deep roasted malt with a lively but bitter finish. Mmmm

22 oz. from Central Market. I’m not sure I get the whole fascination with black IPAs. They rarely ever seem to do justice to either side of the equation. This is a perfectly serviceable CDA, but I suppose not my cup o’ tea.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Out of the bottle. Pours black with a coarse white head which I wasn’t expecting. Smell is a nice balance of roasted malts and hops. Taste starts hoppy and finishes with a nice roasted flavor. The bitter flavor of the malts linger on the tongue, which isn’t my favorite, but it isn’t enough to make me not enjoy the beer. This is a great CDA.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with an off-white head on top. Aroma is coffee, citrus, cocoa, and roasted grain. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted grain, and citrus. On the palate the beer is medium bodied and somewhat creamy with the right amount of carbonation.

robforbes (2055) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
pours a dark brown with a medium dirty white head, and great lacing. smell is of hops, dark malts, a roastiness, and a touch of caramel. taste is bitter, nice malt flavor, and hops. ends nicely bitter.

luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JAN 5, 2013
22oz bottle in Seattle. Dark roasty black, foamy gray head. Strong hoppy aroma, much more IPA than most CDAs I’ve had. Roasty malts, chocolate. But very IPA forward with piney bitterness. Quite balanced, one of the better CDA I’ve come across. Tasty.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Sample at Columbia Valley Brewery. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium creamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, hops and pine. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, roasted malt and citrus. The finish is hoppy with a lingering pine aftertaste. Decent overall.
