marcus (6498) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
On tap at The Trappist. Pours near black with a transient tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses, tobacco and chocolate flavor with a dry finish.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
hazy sepia, thin small bubbled cream. Too heavily carbonated for black IPA, hoppy and spritzy with low roast. Flavor shows light brownie, very green and earthy through improving mid, lots of roast, gets cola-esque in finish.

solidfunk (4008) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Decent black IPA. Pours black with good head and lacing. Some roast malt, some hops. More on the malty side than hoppy. Soft carbonation. On tap in impromptu sampler served up by Chris at Ebenezer Kezar’s.

GT2 (8434) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
750mL from El Cerrito. $17 or so- ouch. Pours a muddy near black, brown highlights. Massive tan foam, overcarbonated. Ice cream scoop retention. Huge lacing. Nose is pine, roast, savory steak, mild olive- on target Black IPA. Taste is fruity, roast, pine, mild sugar and soap. Palate is a tad too dusty and soapy, not enough density given the high effervescence. Slightly too aerated. Citric acid bite. Still, crazy on target for American Black IPA from Bruno.

Black pour with a single finger head. Lots of carbonation. Limited aroma. Long lingering bitterness. A little roast. Overall a very clean Black IPA.

Pitch black in colour, almost black foam. A bit hoppy but a lot of licorice and a nice sweetness makes this ber quite well balanced though the high alcohol level
