3/1/2013. So glad to have found this. Black IPA seems misleading though. Somewhere between a Black IPA, a Stout and a Porter. Pours translucent black (deep red really) with a thick brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Taste is similar and more; coffee, creamy, chocolate, smoke, bitter, dark chocolate; huge and long coffee finish. Some nice lacing. Mouth feel is chewy but also thin somehow. Misleading in style, but stand-out in all other areas.

Opaque black - brown beer. Big big pale tan head. Palate is crispy with sharp minerals. Creamy dark malt - a little ’brown’ in character. Touch of caramel and super mild roast, slightly bitter. Traces of red berry fruits and pine hops. Unsweet dark chocolate. Crispy finish. Semi bitter aftertaste from both hops and roast malt. Hangs together well.

A bit of a sweet syrupy black IIPA... Its awkward yet hoppy and roasty. Not as bad as it couldve been but just mediocre.

sloe gin fruit taste to this black brew that is caustic with an acrid finish. moderate body meanders around with low carbonation.

A nice looking head that dissipates over a few minutes. The aroma is of sweet roasted malts, coffee, wood notes, & hops. The flavor is very robust & malty. In addition the Black Perle has coffee and hop flavor. Overall the drink has a mild bitterness and isn’t too rough on the palate.
