"Blasphemy! They cried when the idea of blending the super-charged bitterness of an IPA with the darkness of a Stout was debuted. Of course we thought it was a cool idea.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2014
On cask@ Mugs Alehouse Brooklyn. Very good beer this. Super soft serve from the cask and treats the beer with great respect. A river of plushness with roast, coffee and brilliantly defined (and massive cut) of white spice. In wine parlance just screams Northern Rhone syrah.

Maverick34 (2506) - New York, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Draught from headless horsemen. Dark pour, I could really not tell. Piney hops aroma. Citrusy hops predominate this one, a bit of burnt coffee. It was ok but not malty enough for me.

Trappist1 (642) - Diest, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2013
bottle @ Rattle ’N’ Hum. Black color, small head. Taste is a bit smokey, roasted malts, dry, very bitter. Missing a fruity aftertaste here although beer is nicely balanced.

Bamsen78 (3998) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2013
Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours cloudy black with creamy tan head. Clear aroma of roast, caramel malt, hops and coffee. Bitter and roasty onset, giving way to sweetish malty notes, ending on a coffeelike note. A really good blackie.

@ Singlecut. Pours black with khaki head. Aroma of roasted malts with a faint hop presence in there as well. Taste brings some acidic roast followed by piney hops. Average palate. Finish is roasty and piney bitter. Would have liked this a fair bit more if it was less acidic. I think this has promise.

mansquito (3968) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pine Box Rock Shop, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours black with a beige-tan head. Aroma is pine, chocolate, rez, and roasted malts. Taste is your pretty standard middle of the road Black IPA. Everything is in balance. Nice bitter hops with pine and even a bit of citrus, but not in a west coast way. Malt backbone is prominent, but not overpowering. Nice and sessionable, but also very substantial and satisfying

jredmond (6043) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 Draft at Brouwerij Lane with Clockwork and Joel. Pours a deep black body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is super fresh pine, resin and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of cocoa, fresh pine, resin, pine needles, and bitter grapefruit. Very nice.
