After the death of his wife, Henry Jackson Smart was left to raise his 6 young children alone. His courage, love, selflessness and dedication inspired his daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, to organize the first Fatherís Day on June 19th, 1910. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fatherís Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established it as a permanent day of national observance. Dadís Little Helper Black IPA is deep mahogany in color with roasted malt and hop aromas and dense creamy head. It enters the palate with intense hop flavor and coats the tongue with a rich maltiness from the Rogue Farms Risk Malt.

Malty, alcohol aromas. Pours thick dark brown with red tints, thick tan head with big bubbles. Good flavors, sweet and not too bitter to start but has a long bitter finish.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Dark brown pour with ruby red hues building up to a modest tan head. The aroma has a kind of dark malt earthy hop character to it. Raisins maybe. The body is around medium. The taste has an oily malty feel to it with a modest bitterness but not a really hopped up finish. Astringent. Eh, not a fantastic Rogue offering but not bad.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Brown/black appearance with a sticky, lingering tan head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, earthy hops, pine, light coffee, caramel, bread and light toffee. Medium bodied.

Draft at Maddyís bar and Grille The black IPA poured a deep black with small light beige head. There was a pleasant aroma of roasted malts and with pine resin. The medium body IPA had soft carbonation. It is an IPA that grows on you as you consume it. It had mostly bitter finish with a touch of coffee. Overall a good black IPA. Maddyís is in the DuPont Circle area of DC.

Pint draft at Mews Tavern in Wakefield, RI. Pour is brownish black, opaque with an off-white head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, hint of coffee with piney hops and citrus. Taste is a touch of dark chocolate and citrus sweetness, with a piney smooth bitterness. Nice example of the style.

commonmac (252) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Tap in a tulip glass at Devilís Advocate. Dark black IPA with a good, steady head. A strong roast on this one with a heavy dose of bitter. A near coffee aftertaste. Malt, malt, malt. Maybe some syrupy taste too. For this style, I think itís in the better than average group. Not really my thing but a good effort nonetheless.

I get almost a molasses aroma with a touch of chocolate and a bit of hops in this black brew with an off white head. Light bodied kinda tastes like chocolate and molasses and some hops. For a black IPA I figure Iíd get more hops and it wasnít there. Not a bad brew but worth a try
