Now this is a black IPA. It could easily pass for a stout in appearance, and it produces a truly beautiful fluffy, light brown head and there’s just enough stickiness to form some really thick, sexy lacing in places. The nose offers some roasted malts up front, which quickly balances out with some sweet, caramel/toffee sweetness. Something else, an alcoholic, fermented fruitiness deep in the aroma reminds me of a Tempranillo. The flavor is phenomenal for a black IPA. This is easily my favorite of the style, even if it leans Belgian. I often feel like I’m in search of the perfect black IPA, and sometimes, even often, remark at how a black IPA is really good - but this one has to top the bill. Some cocoa-like roasted malts form the base of the malt flavor, with a very distinctive herbal, citrusy lemon hop presence blending extremely well with the malts mid-palate. Sorachi Ace hops seem to really be amped up in this beer, but the complimenting heft and flavor of the malts really make this beer work. It’s truly impressive. Finally a dry, toasted/heavily roasted malt flavor, sans burnt bitterness, finishes out the flavor.

On draught at Roscoe’s for Sierra Nevada Summit/Tap Takeover. Deep chocolatey black with dark tan head. Aroma is very dark roasted malt, coffee, and citrus. Taste is chocolate, roasted peanut, lightly smoked dark malt, yeast, and some fruity light citrus notes. Very chocolatey and fruity in the finish.

Beersiveknown (2844) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Dark brown black with pillowy "anzac" brown head. rich almost lactose like yeast esters and a touch of goosweberry, perhaps slightly manure, full bodied, gentle carbonation. yeast and hops working well together, slighty toasty dry pithy finish. Creamy, complex yet immensely drinkable for its strength. This needs to be a full time beer.

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Poured nigh on black with a small tan head. Nose revealed coffee, spice, piney hop and dark malts. Similar components comprised the taste in addition to notes of spice, booze, choc and dark fruits. Plenty transpiring. Hop bitterness lurked with purpose in the shadows.Tasty Black IPA with quality throughout. Beer Camp range is very tidy indeed.
