12 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Resinous burnt herbal roasty aroma with a hint of creamy cocoa. Ashy herbal flavor with a touch of cocoa. Definitely good.

Outstanding beer. Perfect palate on this ipa. Hops and roast come through well. Finish is a bit high on the alcohol. Great overall.

This is an interesting beer. Its like a mix between a strong ale - very malty - and an IPA - very hoppy. Its a weird mix and I’m not entirely sure what they were going for with it.

This beer tastes expensive. Malty as hell and hoppy..... As hell also... Smells like barbecue, and tastes like a million bucks. I normally hate black ipas, but this one is great... Goodnight bodacious, if by bodacious you mean me because it’s really strong and they don’t say how strong it is but it’s delicious so you drink like 4 and then you die.... Because shorts want to change the face of alcohol..... From booze to death... Goodnight bodacious...

Pleasant aroma. Poor’s dark with a thin head. Hops are present but not overwhelming. I’m not a huge black IPA fan but I place this at or near the top in that category.

Fresh bottle. Pours black with a slim khaki head. Nice hop aroma is most noticeable first, then roasted malts, a touch of chocolate. Taste is a nice balance of roasted malts, "earthy" hops (for lack of a better word), and slight coffee. Medium+ bitterness. Full bodied, average carbonation, almost creamy mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness. Well done.

Imperialne black ipa ale smakuje bardziej jak mocny stout ze spor? goryczka. Aromat jest stoutowy nie czu?em za du?o chmielu ale piwo juz swoje odstalo. W smaku tak samo du?o palonosci, czekolady i ciemnych owoców plus nagle spora cytrusowa goryczka. Piwo jest g?ste i pi?kne.

On tap...overwhelming sweetness dominates here with a syrupy molasses character. Lacks balance...I wouldn’t have another one of these.

Extra from Brandon. Thanks man. I used to be a big black IPA fan. But lately they have gotten boring. Kinda hoppy, too much rye. All similar. But every once in a while you get woken up, and this was it. Lots of chocolate malt that perfectly blends with a nice helping of pine hops. The body is a touch thicker and creamier than most of this style and abv but works great.
