Ughsmash (7248) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Bottled. Poured a healthy shade of deeper brown with a short khaki head. The aroma picked up dank pine and perfumey hoppage over caramel and toasted chocolate malts.. I loved the fresh, vibrant hop presence, and the malts worked OK. The flavor found sweeter chocolate, iced tea, and roasty black patent notes at the core, with fresh, green pine and perfumey bitterness around.. dank and bitter on the finish.. good stuff. Medium-bodied with just the right amount of carbo on the palate.. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the malts in here, but the hops were really delicious and made up for it.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by Aubrey Joe. Thanks again, Joe! Pours a brown-hued copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, caramel malts, mint, tobacco, grapefruit, and brown sugar. Flavor of mint, grapefruit, tobacco, wood, caramel malts, and tea leaves. Medium-bodied, with a cool, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good black IPA but didn’t blow me away.

marcus (7083) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a huge beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a brown ale flavor with lots of treacle and a citrus finish. Complex and tasty.

1/4/12. 12oz bottle courtesy ratebeef! Hazy brown pour with a small tan head that sticks and laces plenty. Pungent, almost sour hoppy aroma with cattiness, lemon peel, weed, and more. Sweet entry with caramel and chocolate that gives way to pungent hoppiness, again with cattiness and citrus. Nice!

swoopjones (6558) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 13, 2012
bottle, best black IPA yet...& i am not a real big fan of the type. great sticky, resiny piney aroma. Notes of roasted malts, medicinal , light eucalyptus. Great hop flavor, all about the hops here. Malts & roast add a touch of flavor & balance. Resiny bitterness, really good

Ferris (6533) - 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.

Ernest (6514) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin), with notes of carpet, rubber, and onions. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Surprisingly dirty and unpleasant. Reminds me of Sam Adams’ beers, apart from the raw floor-cleaner-resin hop odor that this brewer seems to love so much for some reason. Fairly sour in the mouth with a foul aftertaste. Phew, they really whiffed this one.
