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.

Fresh bottle from jbruner. Pours midnight black with little to no head. Aroma is símores, a bit of chocolate, fir tree, pine cone. Taste is sweet, light/medium body with decent amount of combination. Interesting play between the dark, roasty/chocolatey malt and hops (what style?). Not bad.

22 Oz Bottle shared by WeeHeavySD in a hotle room in vegas. pours nice black with a thick beige head. Hoppy aroma with ints of roasty malt. Flavor is very well balenced with some nice roasty and sweet notes offset with some bittering hops in the finsih but not so much, fbody is fairly light and easy drinking. very tasty and nearly sessionable.

(22oz bottle) Black body and a medium, creamy chocolate head. Smooth roasted malt aroma, lightly smoky, dark chocolate, espresso. The hops that werenít present in the aroma come through in the taste: at first in the front along with light acidity, fading on the way back with a roasted chocolate finish, and the hops coming back in the after taste. Floral and citrus notes. Medium- to full-bodied with lots of lace left on the glass.

22oz. pours near black with a nice creamy looking tan head. very stout looking... aroma is pine and hint of citrus. mouthful has a huge pine forest with a little cream mouth feel. hard to find the roasted malt for a while, but comes around in the finish, which lingers with big hops as well. i would put this on high on the BIPA list, which is not too long...

Tried both on tap and in bottle. The tap version had a much more pungent dry hopped aroma. Unfortunately this was lacking in the bottle. Medium body and bitterness with roasted undertones. It was definitely better on tap, but the bottle wasnít bad.

Nice beer. Alcahol hidden very well for those not crazy about high gravity beers. I would classify as a hoppy porter.

This beer pours as black as an imperial stout. Smells like one too. However it taste like one might expect with a roasted hop flavor that finishes clean and smooth. Awesome

Bomber bottle from Dchmela, ( thanks Dave ). Nice black pour with a fine tan head. Roasted barly goodness with a nice balance of hops with a little wheat. Every sip was a pleasure.

taste is mildly hoppy with a growing smoky finish. clean and silky on the palate. good lacing. strong coffee finish, but still very smooth and inviting. rock on.

This poured a very dark brown with very little foam. What little foam there was did leave a nice lacing on the glass though. Arom had some strong earthy notes of the simco hop. First taste has the very earthy and grassy hops blast through the palate. This is tempered on the aftertaste by the dark malts, which imbue some hints of dark roast bitter coffee. In the end, the dark coffee and hops come together to make a rather interesting bitter but enjoyable experience.
