COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BBB63 (5961) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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!

Wittales (619) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Appearance was hazy opaque with lasting tannish creamy 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are roasted barley, cocoa, chocolate, earthy hops. Taste are chocolate, coffee, dark roasty malts and earthy, leathery, pine bitter backend. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting astrigent bitter finish. A bit unbalanced for me.

Bottle from the LCBO. Dark mahogany pour with a one finger tan head that fades quite slowly and clings to the glass. Nose is strong toffee and roasted malt with coffee and bitter chocolate and a light pine backing. Bitter from start to finish. Medium creamy with medium soft carbonation. NIce BIPA

650 ml bomber. Pour black with a fairly sticky tan coloured head. The nose is really hoppy. Heavy roast and a little bit of pine and resin. The body is medium with some sticky resin and a little bit of coffee as well. Itís got some earthiness to it. It brightens a bit as it starts to warm up. Dry roast along with an assertive bitterness. Warming amplifies the mid-palate malt profile - thereís quite a bit of caramel and toasted malt there. Itís pretty nice.

Beerenberger (1375) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
A nose of roasted malts, caramel, and bread, with a hint of hop presence. A translucent mahogny hue with a nice tan ring and nominal lacing set the stage for a malt forward taste experience. Roasted malts, caramel/toffe notes, and black coffee bitterness that lingers long into the aftertaste. A smattering of pine/resin/tropical fruit are also represented. I like the balance. Medium body and medium carbonatin. Crisp dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a robust, malt dominated BIPA that goes down easy and can be enjoyed on a warm Texas evening.

puboflyons (2062) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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.

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.
