COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich darkness is not excessive as is sometimes seen in other craft iterations. A medium high hop flavor and aroma befits this style. The caramel and roasted malt flavors and aromas are enhanced with a well-controlled fruitiness.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Pours a very dark brown color with a khaki head. Not a bad nose. Some citrus and pine hop aromas with a touch of floral hop character, too. Definitely some chocolate to go along with the roast. Semi-sweet chocolate flavors along with roast. Citrus peel and pine hop notes give the beer (along with the roast) a moderate bitterness. A light grassy quality, too.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s house. Pours a bit hazy, dark reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Very rich chocolate, raisin, somewhat fruity, kind of creamy, herbal hoppy nose. Slightly burnt, roasty chocolate malty, a bit piney, slightly bitter, anise flavor. Not too shabby.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle shared with Erwin Van Moll and Stefan @ Van Moll Brewpub. Nice dark red-brown color with a nice dark red glare coming through. Nice color, but not black as I expected. Small to average sized beige head. Aroma is lightly malts, oxidation, a hint of cocoa, a hint of leaves. Taste malts, lightly hops, leaves, lightly bitter. Decent body and carbonation.

deyholla (7007) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice earthy pine note with backing dark grains and a roasted note that works nicely with the pine. Flavor is roasty throughout with more roast up front and an earthy pine note that comes out in the finish.

Sampled at St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Brown pour with a tan head. Not as dark as most black IPAs. Coffee and chocolate really pop out in this one - very nice.
