DrSilverworm (8696) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2012
12oz bottle, purchased for $4 from Dutch’s. Really dark brown red color... But the most striking visual aspect here are the super abundant chunks of yeast everywhere... Suspended in the body, stuck on the snifter’s glass, and a bunch more still in the bottle itself. A bit of light tan / white head, leaves good lace. Light, but very smooth and crisp carbonation. Bigger body. Lots of roasty dark malt flavor in every sip. Some dark fruit, dates maybe. A great, sharp but balanced hop note comes in after that initial roastiness, and lingers in the aftertaste, beckoning you to come back to the glass for another sip. A very roasty and resin-bitter taste, light spice... Really awesome flavor overall, it’s unique and difficult to describe. My expectations were set high for this, but honestly, this is great. And a six-pack of this stuff would be absolutely dreamy. Good to the last drop, chunks and all.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is murky brownish with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of big fruity orange, grapefruit and other citrus notes, touch of resinous and pine notes as well meld into some cocoa and roasted notes, touch of caramel. Taste is more of the resinous, dank hop with some slight grapefruit undertones, going into a nice balanced roast and chocolate middle, finishes bitter. Nicely executed.

3fourths (8638) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2012
bottle. cola brown body with a mocha colored head, small-bubbled, quickly dissipating. resinous grapefruit and cocoa powder nose (mild roast, light toffee, more of a caramelized orange / citrus juice aroma). extremely bitter and astringent, wholly out of balance, like sucking on grapefruit skin. pungent hop acids and dark malts and roast (though mild) create a cream cheese and sulfuric egg note. yummy.

DocLock (8593) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Bottles from Capone’s and Craft. Pours turbid burnt sienna with 3-finger khaki head. Nose is vienna malt, piney hops, pineapple, mango, mild coffee. Has an initial blast of resiny sticky hops, followed by the malt, some tropical fruit, and some finishing malty bitterness. The malt does a good job of complementing the hops here.

DSG (8575) - Tel Aviv, - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of lovely fruity and "green" hops and some roasty notes. Flavor has some sweetish maltiness, slightly roasty, with nice bitter fruity and piney hops. Medium-bodied. Very nice.

deyholla (8347) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours brown with a reddish hue, cola carbonation and an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a real nice pine and fresh cut grass note backed by light roasted malts. Flavor has a lighter pine note with more roasted malts and hints of bread and coffee,

Ferris (8081) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle - Alcohol, dark fruit and tons of grapefruit hops. Almost opaque brown and a thick thin brown head. Flavor is complex with brown sugar, grapefruit hops and more dark fruits. Medium body, with a sublime mouth feel. Maybe a bit rich for a Black IPA, but pretty good.

DuffMan (8044) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown, with a surprising amount of sediment at the end of the pour. Enormously hoppy aroma, green and leafy, resinous. Full hop assault on the palate, fresh and aggressive, conifer, gooseberry, lemon rind. There is roast here too, I just need to let my palate re-equilibrate to find it. So good.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a just clear dark brown to black with a large beige head. Citrus on the nose, floral hints, a touch of roast. Medium bodied, sweet, roast and toast. Soft cocoa and roast before more sweet long candied grapefruit and citrus. Long gently sweet bitterness on the finish. Nice stuff.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a very deep brown body with a rather large and lasting, foamy off-white head that leaves good lace and is quite retentive. Aromas are of hops: pine, tropical fruit, kiwi, lychee, some malt: roast, nutty, brown sugar, and light yeast esters. A bit of a spicy co-humulone note. Flavors are nutty, roasty, toasty, medium bitterness, a touch of bready malt and a light citrus and tropical fruit hop punch. A hint grassy. Medium to slightly thin body, a bit of earthy roast, slightly lingering bitterness and floral hop quality. Medium carbonation. Pretty decent.
