COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend had is Captín Krunkles is the most feared pirate on the high seas. No one has seen him, his ship, or the great beer his band of pirates drinks has lived to tell about it. Until now. Made with a bombardment of hops to defeat your tastebuds in battle and all the black malt you can stand before walking the plank, this Black I.P.A. will make it worth going down with the ship.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Poured a black color with a cinnamon colored pillowy head that produced some lacing. This is a heavily malted and hoped beer with plenty of coffee, roasted malt, caramel, and a hint of herb. The mouthfeel is heavy with a sweet forward roast coffee bean flavor initially with a crisp bitterness and hop on finish.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2010
22oz bottles. Pours black with a nice size light brown head. Aroma is hoppy and slight malts. Nice citrus hops flavor followed by roasted malts, and ends smokey and a nice bitter finish. Finish lasts for a while which is nice. Medium bodied.

thagr81_us (175) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Spaten Mug. This brew poured a dark brown (almost competely black) with a one finger tan head. The aroma of this brew was piney. The taste of this was a very smooth earthy flavor that intensified upon swallowing. The hops were very subtle and almost missed. It maintained evident lacing throughout. Overall this was a very nice brew that is easy to drink while still maintaining an earthy flavor. With that said, I would have enjoyed it much more if there was some balance to the earthy flavor. This was still quite good for a Black IPA.

Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2010
Poured dark black with an off-white head. Chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Pine and mocha in the flavor. Not my favorite, but I can appreciate it.

RKanis (152) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2010
Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is hops and roasty malt. Taste is dry hops, toasted malt and coffee. Goes down very smooth. Really good stuff.

fredjaz (112) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Picked this up while on vacation in Orlando at Knightly Spirits. Maybe my expectations were too high being a big fan of Stones Sublimely and Southern Tiers Iniquity black IPAs, but I expected more from this beer. Thought the hop profile was moderate at best.

mrmekon (100) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2010
Very dark amber, almost opaque. Big, long-lasting off-white head with heavy lacing. Aroma is chocolate malt and flowery hops. A little sweetness, a lot of bittering hop, and taste like a dark roast coffee bean. Light to medium body, low carbonation.

IainOg (75) - Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
on draft at cap ale DT. black pour with a beige head going toward brown. roasty malt nose balanced with piney hops with a bit of a pineapple thing happening too. similar flavor profile: roast first, hops very strong but coming in second to the malts. this black IPA definitely tends toward the interpretation of the style that accentuates the roasted malts rather than just using them/it just for coloring, which I dig, but if thatís not what youíre expecting, be prepared.

NateBarnett (69) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is coffee, herbs, chocolate, and some light floral scents. Taste is coffee, bitter hops, and chocolate. Mouthfeel is thicker with an astringent finish. Very good BIPA.
