Overall, this beer was terrible, it was about as vile a beer as they come. Iíll avoid it like the plague form now on. It said black IPA, but tasted more like black mold.

Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Poured a clear, deep brown with excellent to insanely sheety lace. Roast, grapefruity hops in the nose. Taste is a little gross: old tea, old hops, dirty earth, olives, pimento. Briny, salty.

Looks fantastic. A bit harsh with the hops but quite excellent. Strong, can taste the alcohol, but still very good. Thick and serious.

My Bottom Line:
Coniferous hops and their citrusy tips adorn this Imperial Black IPAís slender roasted and caramel malts, building a spicy, resinous bitterness that lasts ages.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam (those shakers really donít help head formation) covers the brown-hued blackness.
-Even though the perfume is alluring, this is not as aromatic as their IPAs.
-Alcohol is hard to perceive due to the important hop presence in the finish.
-That flavour profile is, simply put, hop glory.
-Berry undercurrents add to the complexity.
-The underlying caramel malts are rather subtle compared to the hop signature. Not that I was looking for balance in this type of beer though...

On tap at the brewpub.

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Poured into 16oz pint glass. Pour is dark brown/black with little to no head. Aroma is of piny hops with a hint of roasted malt character. Mouthfeel was moderate to thin with very good carbonation. Taste is of roasted malts but ends with a nice hoppy bittnerness on the pallet. 10.5% ABV hidden exremely well.

Cask at obriens. Roasty, hoppy and strong. Interesting mix of flavors. Not sure what hop combination. Maybe simcoe tossed in somewhere. Another fine ipa by port.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Draught at Blind Lady. Pretty tasty Black IPA. Pours pretty black with a nice off-white head and some lacing. BIG hoppy aroma that included a touch of roasted malt. Big full mouthfeel and some syrupy notes of sticky hop resin and caramel malt. Pretty filling but still light enough not to weigh you down. Went well with pizza.
