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 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.

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.

Dfonorow (1676) - 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 (2880) - 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.

TheBear11D (350) - Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2014
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.
