COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

Pretty good beer. Has an extremely strong malt aroma. Flavor follows with a moderate amount of bitterness. Sweeter than I had expected but still enjoyable.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Pitch black color with a thin beige head. Nice mixture of earthy hops and slight coffee grind in the aroma. Flavor is piney and somewhat dry but still pretty decent all around.

bytemesis (6726) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep brown-black with a medium tan head that dissipates with good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, citrus, pine. Flavor is the same with heavy roasted malts and a pine/citrus medium bitterness. Lightly sweet, bitterness lingering long into the finish, almost a light astringency. Medium body.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 3, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2013 Besides the hops, the taste and scent most dominant to me is roasted malt and chocolate, followed by pine. Not an ideal combination, two great tastes that do not taste great together.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a fairly thin head. Nose is rather slight - a little bit of pine in there, but not a lot of smell. Taste is balanced well with some hops and malts, with some great roasting in there.

glennmastrange (2666) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop notes of toasted, molasses and resin, light earth for the yeast, and tar and licorice in the background. Head is small, frothy, light brown with some spotty lacing and good legs, and diminishes to a small, ring. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet, moderately acidic and sour, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. . Palate is medium. oily with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent and dry finish. Nice biting and toasty flavors in this tasty Black IPA.

Bulk_Carrier (3722) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 30, 2012
It pours a jet black with a one inch white foamy head that only lasts for several seconds. Some spotty lacing graces the sides of the pint glass. The smell has the pine and hops up front, some light malts enter in after some warming up. The taste is slightly bitter yet sweet in different aspects. The palate is medium with some carbonation coming out a bit strong. Overall, a decent beer from Peak Organic, probably not one to jump up and down about, but hey, I’ll graze over these for the rest of the winter.

This is really nice, great attributes. The sniff is the best part! Reeks of fresh hops with the look of a black ale. Flavor is deep with fresh hops and a roast malty back. Pretty smooth and 8% ABV! Overall this brew should get more love!! Try it hop lovers
