tmoreau (2420) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, displaying a black/brown color, with amber highlighting showing through at the base, a light layer of off white/light tan foam, and spots of lacing. The aroma was hefty roast as iced coffee that was made with what was left in the pot, and some earthy & resinous scent. The taste continued the roastiness, adding a little cocoa, with a strong, citrus & pine, hop bitterness, some creaminess to the mouthfeel, in a medium to full body. Nose? Otherwise decent.

drsordr (1055) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle pours deep dark brown and ruby hues. Nose lots of aromatic hop, pine, resin, tropical fruit. Taste bitter up front, the the dark roast/burnt typical of black IPA. Some balancing sweetness. Bitter finish with slight soapy hop. Black IPA has never been one of my favorite styles, but this one not bad.

ccex (922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bomber from Three Floyds brewpub pours an opaque black with creamy tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma is full of pine resin, roasted malts and grapefruit. Taste is mostly bitter with lots of roasted malts, and even some chocolate and coffee in the middle before the big hoppy FFF signature finish. Body is medium with slight carbonation and a sticky, oily mouthfeel. A very well balanced black IPA which exceeded my expectations

kevinsenn (1075) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from Three Floyds. Pours solid black with a continually growing head. Aroma is typical Black IPA - roasted malt and C-hops. Taste is ultra roasty, with light chocolate notes, licorice, light floral/citrus hops, and a huge bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Very nice Black IPA.
