[3704-20110429] Tap. Grainy roast malt bread aroma. Clear, black red-hued body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Roasted grainy malt flavour is boozy and lingers afterward with wooden bark notes. Full body. Tasty and interesting but don’t think I could handle a pint. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7

boFNjackson (4100) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle... Poured near black, opaque with a light tan head that retained nicely. Good body, the hops really played mostly in the finish with their floralness and pine qualities. Moderate carbonation with some roasted malt tones. Bready, cookie dough sweetness, cardboard muskiness. Quite balanced, decent, glad that the east coast can represent well in the CDA style.

blipp (5884) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with piney and herbal hops. The flavor has roasted malts, floral hops, light herbal notes, and a very light ashy note. Not bad.

Draft at Hamilton College’s Little Pub. Dark brown pour with a smallish tan head. Aroma holds nice piney and grassy hop, along with a touch of caramel and cinnamon. Flavor is pretty tasty, but unfortunately the roasty malt character doesn’t quite mesh with the bitter hops. As a result, the flavor is hoppy and fairly tasty, but the flavor is non-distinct. Close, and a good try, but this keeps it from being a solid black IPA.

swoopjones (5611) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2011
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY> darker brown black cola looking pour. aroma is citrusy hops upfront with roasted malts underneath. taste is heavily roasty upfront, touches of tobacco & coffee. Pretty good for the style, one of which im not really crazy about

2011-04-29. Very dark brown black body with a modest beige head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, very light roast and dark malt, modest roast throughout, lingering dry malt and hoppy bitterness. 6+ Sweetish dark malt aroma, very light roast and mild hops. 6+ Average plus palate. 3+ Okay, hops are less prominent than hoped for. On tap at Coles, Buffalo
