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.

Nsanders (766) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Dark red brown color with light tan head. Strong caramel and malty aromas for an ipa, but definite earthy hop presence. Taste is sweet as expected with a moderately bitter finish. Body is medium heavy with a slight oily feel. I really enjoyed this beer.

Black IPA in terms of bitterness, but not so much in terms of hop flavor/aroma. Body is ok as is appearance; Finish is long and roasty.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a thick looking black with a tan cream foam head. Nice toasty malt aroma and flavor. Nice hop character throughout. Roasted caramel finish that lingers. Overall a tasty beer.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: film of tan head, dark brown to black color, opaque, . Aroma: nutty, heavy coffee, light fruitiness. Palate: medium body, bitter finish, less than average carbonation. Taste: sweet nutty malt, going into heavy coffee with a decent amount of bitterness coming through as well. Overall, pretty pleasant beer, very enjoyable.

fiveacestx (808) - Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle - near jet black with a small head. Light roasted malt aroma and a grainy taste. The body is medium and the finish is very smooth but somewhat watery. Not bad.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Odors of cocoa, musk, earthen char emanate from this onyx pour and beige crown. This is actually quite good, the best Iíve seen from third street. Bitter char, excellent sweet follow up. Overall, satisfied to have found a good one.

Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate and earthy hops. Flavor is chocolate, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, and earthy hops with a decent hoppy finish. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Very easy drinking, wife likes this. Roasted malt, coffee, and nice clean bitterness. Actually pretty surprised at this one.

johnnymusky (605) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pour is black with nice head...nose is minimal a little hops and malt..mouth is malt and anise...something is lacking in this one...drinkable yet needs something...maybe dark fruit....drinkable but not fantastic.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Mid sized head. Opaque black. Unimpressive roast, malt, caramel, and hop aroma. Somewhat thick for an IPA, but not unappealing by any means. Creamy. Pleasing combination of roast, chocolate and a fair amount of hop. Simple, but satisfying nonetheless.
