Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Draft. Poured clear black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark rye and hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thick khaki head that dissipates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, roast malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with an earthy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Growler opened at Muckfest 2014, though Iím not sure who brought it. Whoever it was, Iím sure he or she is a jerk. Thanks, jerk! Pours a dark brown color with minimal head. Notes of dark and milk chocolate, citrus peel, earth, grass, and mild roast. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Milder than many other black IPAs. Good, too.

b3shine (5438) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Draft to pint at Neonís. Looks good; black with beige lacing. Smells and tastes good too; like White Rajah with a roasted malt backbone. Nice on the palate too. An outstanding example of the style!

alexsdad06 (5412) - Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Draft at Dutchís. Pours a clear dark brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malt that is milder than many black IPAs, grapefruit citrus, light resin, decent bitterness and roast combination.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Not bad for the style but that is faint praise indeed. +++ Sampled from a growler this beer poured a black color with a medium sized creamy dark tan head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was roasty and malty with moderate pine and floral hops. The flavor was tangy and roasty with notes of grapefruit, pine, lemon and Windex and faint touches of coffee and anise. Medium length roasty grapefruit and pine finish. Medium body. Decent.

Sample at TBK on 10/11/13. Darkest brown pour with a huge tan head. Dark malt nose with some caramel, along with grassy and earthy hops. Malty and caramelly flavor with slight grapefruit before a spicy hop finish.

Draft at Big Beers. Pretty pungent IPA. Seriously, nice bitterness and dark malt but theres some nice skunk lurking in there.
