COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bludgeon Yer Eye is an India Black Ale. Intense fruity and floral aromas, along with a subtle malty fragrance, emits from the beer. The deep black color complements the rich, dark roasted malt flavors. The unexpected twist comes when the high hop bitterness takes over and leaves a bitter finish.

Another Short’s extra from umich03jm. Thanks, Jason! 12oz bottle pours nearly black with a nice beige head. Aroma is toffee, raisin and pine. Flavor is burnt caramel, toffee, char and pine. Finish is pine bitterness... Just enough to balance. I got this about five weeks ago, so the hops might be a bit subdued compared with fresh. This is pretty tasty, regardless.

Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, dark reddish orange pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, rye, spice, touch of fruit into citrus, some pine, hints of earth. Taste was a mix of orange, caramel, toffee into some pine, grass, toasted bread, rye and spice, finishing slightly bitter.

Criz (206) - - MAY 24, 2015
Black iPas are not my favorite, but this one is pretty good. Pours a deep black with a foamy tan head. Nice floras notes finished with a toasty malted flavor. Flavors of roasted malts, slight floral flavor finished by a coffee flavor.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (28) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
12oz bottle. Pour is very dark. Head fades to tight tan ring. Floral notes dominate the nose as do roasted malts. Distinct bitterness shines through on the finish. Licorice and cocao are evident but oveshadowed by the bitterness. More-so than you would expect. Hard to get over that.

Mr_Abner (154) - Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a light tan head that leaves behind a mess of lacing after a few drinks. Aromas of citrus and roasted malts, some alcohol apparent as it warms. Tastes of roasted malts and fruity hops, strong bitterness. Medium bodied, average carbonation, bitter finish.

SpongeRuiner (906) - Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Another from Shorts. This one pours a dark black color. With a smooth long lasting light brown head. It settles still into an interesting oil on water look. A dark roasty licorice aroma. With a background of malt and citrus hops. A bright floral hop flavor right upfront. A sharp carbonation on the throat and tongue. A big roasty flavor comes back in the end. With warmth of cocoa flavors. Very unique.

eaglebones (70) - Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Black color with medium tan head. Aroma is strong pine with hints of dark chocolate. Medium body with light carbonation. Slight sweetness of chocolate, but that is overpowered by a strong hoppy pine flavor that lingers on the palate.

Mark_Eck (1013) - - JUN 18, 2014
Pours a dark brown. Aroma is dark fruits and malts. Taste is similar to aroma with a bitter finish.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pour is black with a thin off-white head. Aroma of dark malt, roasted wood, caramel, and spruce tree. Flavor is a bit more bitter - coffee, smoked malt, with a hop finish.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Tap: Deep, deep brown, black in the middle. Thick, light-tan head foams up with nice staying power. Aroma of heavy pines, resins, & dank hop oils up front with just a mild touch of roast back-end. Light char, bitter citrus peel. More pine needles, oily hop resin, & mild hemp in the flavor. Touch of dank; bitter, but not overly abrasive. Mid-palate, the hops settle & malt shows up, lightly toasted & caramely with subtle roast & dry cocoa powder. Very lightly sticky finish, lingering citrus peels & faint roasted malt. Overall, a very solid & tasty black IPA.
