On tap at Mr. Goodbar, served way too cold. Not as good as their previous black IPA, this was a decent beer. Only getting anundertated bitterness and average mouthfeel, getting more yeast and spicyness. Dark brown colour with a small head, lace rings left. Yeast in aroma.

2010-12-04. Very dark brown-black bod, small foamy beige head. 3+ Modest aroma, dry malt, dusty with earthy accents, mild grapefruit citrus character. 7+ Average plus palate. Decent but doesn’t quite come together for me today. Flavour is a bit odd at first, with some dusty malt, mild citrus undertones that seem out of place and not aggressive enough to take prominence. 7+ Decent but does not quite come together for me today. Tap at Coles, Buffalo

j12601 (9562) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear caramel brown with a medium thick beige and tan head. Big fat citrus, resinous and dank. Medium bodied, light roast, malt. A bit empty feeling but mostly just because it’s about 4.6% and tough to get tons of body on it. But still quite tasty. Nice slow grapefruit finish with light toast. Really well done session beer.

[3508-20101204] Tap. Earthy aroma is a little grassy. Clear, dark red brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. More earthy chocolate malt in the flavour with grainy bitter hops throughout. Medium body. Interesting, like a meaty IPA and a nice change without the usual citrus base.

Draft at Rattle. Pours a black body. Aroma is light roast and slight hop. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin, decent Black IPA offering.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Tap at RNH. Pours a deep woody brown nearing black with a nice lasting foamy sticky beige head- lace is good. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass, mint light nutty earthy hint and slight roast. Flavor is light earthy leather roast, nuts, clean grapefruit, pine, citrus, grass, mint. Finish is nice bitter and clean. Pretty solid- straightforward and clean. Didnt realize this was 4.6%- had a pretty good flavor for such low alcohol.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Growler. Pours a deep brown with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of fresh floral and citrusy hops, caramel, toasted malt and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor of the same nice citrusy hop notes, caramel malt, some roasted malt. Smooth hop bitterness. Easy drinking black ale (not quite aggressive/bitterness enough to really be considered a Black IPA). Solid beer either way.

tgncc (3100) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2010
The aroma is roasty, toasted malt, nuts. The appearance is black, translucent, red hue. The flavor is like the aroma, roasty and toasty, with nuts, and after a second, a very subtle earthy hop bitterness. The finish segues into a resiny, earthy hoppiness, which endures. The beer is medium in body, maybe a tad thin, silky. Low in carbonation. Not bad, but not great. Definitely would call this a Black IPA. Tastes and smells more like a schwarzbier, which wouldn’t be accurate either.

Draft. Deep black. No head. Smells malty like a schwattzbier not as hoppy as other black ipas or what i would expect. Not bad. Very drinkable
