3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. bottle. Lightly roasty and hoppy aroma, with notes of pine, earthiness, faint chocolate and caramel. Opaque deep, dark brown in color, bottle-conditioned, with a lasting, uneven, off-white head. Flavor profile is moderately bitter, spicy, piney and resinous hops, combined with a dark malt sweetness and roasty chocolate character, some faint char, burnt grain and dark fruit tones on the finish as well. Plenty of fine effervescence on the palate, dry, with a medium body. A rather mild, drinkable version of the style. The sediment indicating this is a live ale is a nice touch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of milk and faint roasted grains. Black in color with thin foam and nice lacing. Slightly watery and milky upfront with an immediate burst of roasted chocolate, molasses, grains and caramel. Alcohol is very soft with a toffee finish. Overall, pretty unique Black IPA with milky chocolate overtones and some roast/toffee undertones. More stout-like than IPA. Iíd give this a B+ rating.

Probably the most tame ipa Iíve had to date. Personally, I like a "kick in the balls" ipa, but this is very nice for a mellower brew. A great finishing brew with an excellent palate.

Reddish Brown with white head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt...a little nutty. Taste is roasted malt and a little bitter. Thought it would have more of an IPA bite. Still not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber bottle and served in a tulip: Pours a deep brown with a nice frothy off-white head and good lace. The beer profile is that of roast, bread and charred malts along with dank , resiny, piney and slight juicy hops. A bit medicinal (aka band-aid) and harsh mouth feel. While this avoids the sweet malt fault that many Black IPAís have, there is still something not quite right with this brew. Harsh and aggressive mouthfeel makes it less than enjoyable. The hops seems all wrong!

Very dark red body, off white head. Roasted malty aroma with caramel, almonds, toast, a light herbal bitterness. Quite bitter with a hint of dry sourness with some black chocolate, bread, pine. Nice, but not particularly impressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Clear dark brown colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Slightly grassy, herbal hoppy aroma with dark malty background, a nuttily touch. Taste is bitter hoppy, slightly herbal and grassy, dark malty notes flashing up, also slightly watery in between; overall a bit weak on the malty side.
