3fourths (8984) - 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.

DuffMan (8942) - 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.

marcus (8698) - 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.

djd07 (8291) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle at Petrol Station. Pours a cloudy brown with a small frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hops and hemp. Thin mouthfeel with a very strong hop and grass with long lingering dry finish. A very good black IPA from The Alchemist.

bb (8270) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle. Murky brown beer with a tan head. Big grapefruit and summer fruit aroma. Summer fruti and grapefruit flavor. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Pine and light summer fruit lingers with grapefruit.

alexsdad06 (8254) - Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color, medium to large beige head with quite a bit of sediment floating throughout. The aroma has some roasted caramel malt and ample amounts of fresh hops that make me want to take that first drink. The flavor does show a nice balance between the roasted malt and the resiny and light citrus hops. Moderate bitterness to the finish. The roasted notes come out a bit more as it warms. Medium bodied. Another solid black IPA from the producers of another favorite black ipa of mine.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
12oz bottle w/o a very imaginative name pours up brown – copper – amber, brownish with tiny floaties and thin tan head. The aroma is big and bold even while still pretty cold and delivers chewy pine and citrus hop goodness mixing with a bit of spicy hops, earthiness and faint roasted malts. The flavor, oh yeah, I’m liking this. It unloads a great mix of pine hops and somewhat malt sweetened grapefruit and tangelo citrus hops. The hops have a modest level of hops flavor but formidable hop bitterness. This is chewy yummy and bold and maintains a nice hop flavor into the finish. Lovely.

BMan1113VR (7914) - 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.

Balanced toffee, flowery.

drowland (7774) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2012
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!
