Draft. Really nice chocolate/roasty black ipa, some hop character in there but not getting in away of the malt bill.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Draft. Cherry, caramel malt, and orange peel aroma. Dark chestnut with small head. Sweet cherry molasses malt and moderately bitter orange peel/pine flavor. Very nice - really enjoyed the fruitness in this.

It's a decent beer. Darks are not my beers of choice. It's a good beer that is just so-so. Nothing really knocked my socks off. It opens with Carmel notes and finishes smooth with low bitters. I know the ibu is listed in the high 90's but the taste dosent reflect. If you're looking for a decent dark with alc 6.7 with relatively low bitters. Give this one a try. I compare this to a Robert the Bruce. I would give these beers the exact same rating but Bruce would get 0.2 - 0.5 more points. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Back Road Fall Fest. Caramel, chocolate, piney citrus hops, and ashy aroma. Dark brown with a small beige head, nice lacing. Caramel and ashy coffee malt, resinous piney-citrus hops, and earthy grassy flavor. Medium body. Nice malt balance.

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft pour on tap at the brewery (Lansing, IL). Pours a rich deep blackish hue, near opaque with good haziness, big frothy light brown head dies to a firm layer, laces pretty well and sticks around. Aromas are luscious roast and toast, kiss of cocoa, some bready and biscuity malts. Some fine pine, mellow yet growing grapefruit start to grow, a bit of creaminess, gentle pine as it warms. Initial is medium bodied, a touch thicker with some decent roast and toast, creamy elements, with a bit of cocoa, gentle fresher hops start to grow, florals and some pine. Gentle grapefruit. Middle gets a touch smokey, smooth silky malt body with some gentle bitterness, a bit more pine and hop bitterness show into the back and finish, with touches of roast, lingering mellow smoke, and bitter pine really lingers on the palate and aftertaste. Slowly grows into its namesake. Solid Black IPA, interesting smoke element, could use a bit more of an agressive front end hopping but backend fits the bill. Nice.
