12oz can, thanks to alexsdad06. Shared with Chris R and Brian M. Can dated 10/9/15 ("not my jam"). Hazy dark brown color. Thin tan head. Leaves good bits of lace. Oh yeah, a ton of hop up front on the nose. Very satisfying. Lots of big citrus and tropical fruity notes. Great pine and resin. Reminds me of the same hop level of the new Enjoy By black IPA, but with less of a sweet malt bite in the finish. Just a very mild touch of dark chocolate, mild roast, little earthiness. Medium to bigger body, mildly chewy. Lighter carbonation. Mild slick finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, lighter to moderate sweet. An impressive, satisfyingly hoppy and assertive black IPA.

Pyrmir (5055) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2015
Can at Hasse, thanks Lenner! Black with mocca head. Aroma is roasted, hoppy, liquorice, faint smoke and light piney notes. Taste is roasted and smooth, medium dry. Malt, wood, pine, resin, light herbs, dark chocolate, faint smoke and light dark fruit notes. Superbly balanced.

SG111 (807) - New York, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Canned 10/09/15. Pours black, beige white head. Aroma is slight resin, pine, citrus, roasted malt, smoke. Flavor is nice. Hops and pine pop first, then roasted malt and chocolate really come through. Solid mouthfeel. Hop bitterness, not much coffee bitterness. Nice black ipa. Actually a really good example of the style.

Can. Black pour with tan head. Dark chocolatey malt with piney, lightly citrusy hops. Great balance between the components. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Excellent.

Stine (1733) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Charcoal color, tanned foam. Ashen pine aroma. Citrus and some blackened meat. Flavor has the same features with a medicinal black cherry flavor in the pungent middle. Mouthfeel is medium, carb is high, too high; malt depth is overshadowed. This is an acceptable take on this dull and predictable style.

Savage_Night (301) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2015

AROMA: roasted malt, smoke, herbal hops, herbs, spices, peppercorn, pine bitterness, bittersweet citrus, slight dark chocolate bitterness, dried stone fruit, leaves, ginger, light molasses and spruce. TASTE: roasted malt, herbs, hop spice, smoke, spices, pine bitterness, bittersweet citrus, leaves, light molasses, spruce, slight prune juice, cough syrup and burned brown sugar. AFTER TASTE: roasty, malty, hop spice, dark chocolate bitterness and pine with an oily spiced finish.

PhillyCraft (4757) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Can, pours blackish brown with small off white head. Aroma is very hoppy and dank. Flavor is super bitter cascade and roasty with some pine, ash and smoked grain. Way too bitter and ashy to be enjoyed in quantity.

12 oz can from mstrcrwly shared with drsordr. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have resiny and earthy hops, roasted malt, chocolate, green hops, seems to be a pretty solid black IPA, rather than a porter with extra hops.

drsordr (1862) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Can shared by alexsdad06 pour opaque cola brown with moderate tan head. Nose resin, weedy, and hint of chocolate. Taste light bitter up front, then combo of hops, light roast, and chocolate. Not as burnt as lots of black IPA. Some candied fruit late. Light to moderate bitter finish. Got to love it since my name is Doug.
