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.

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 (3118) - 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.

Bludgeon Yer Eye pours a dark brownish plumb with a light tan brown head that lasts a good while. The aroma is floral, raisin and with a bit of cheese. The flavor is raisin, earthy and some cheese. Overall this is a pretty good brew.

On tap at Ashley's. Pours a dark black, but with hops and citrus on the nose. Nice flavor but a bit of an unfinished bitter back end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great smelling beer. Sweet and floral. Flavors start with malts. Caramel, toffee and unsweetened chocolate. Finish is all hops. Floral, with undertones of citrus peel, oranges and some spice. Hints of toasted grains.

blklab2007 (2092) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle poured a deep brown color with a coating of tan head that retained a ring on the glass. Aroma has punchy hops, citrus, resins, underlying chocolate, and dark malts. Mouth feel is average and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has plenty of both malt and hops. Dark malts, resins, citrus, chocolate, creeping bitterness, and a hit of underlying sweetness.

Clownoisseur (362) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost with a purple hue, Looks like root beer. Low to medium carbonation. Minimal off-white head. Diminishes quick into a thin ring of lacing around the glass. Smells of bitter hops, sweet malts, dark fruits, wine-like at times. Tastes bitter with roasty malt undertones. Some sweetness sneaks in...pine...citrus...very nice. Finishes big and bitter. Lingers a while but enjoyable.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; cola with thin beige head. Smells and tastes of dark malt, hops, and roast. Solid on the palate. Enjoyable.
