COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Komodo Dragonfly Black IPA is a well-balanced, dark, bitter, and totally unique beer experience. We brewed this IPA with a base of fresh Pilsner Malts and darkened the color with pure Black Malts, creating a clean malt character that allows the liberal hop additions to shine through. Komodo is dry hopped and aged with a pinch of lavender to add to the overall aromatic experience.

Beautiful pour. Black with a frothy head. Aroma is of roasted malt. It’s taste is a little too dry for me. Not much sweetness but the hops come through at the end.

aroma is good general roast and bakers chocolate. appearance is opaque with filthy head of good size but less retention and some lacing. flavor is excellent balance of roast softness with some java notes and plenty of unsweetened cocoa - up against bracing bitterness with buried citrus and hint of pine. this is not an IPA nor black IPA (nor does that style even exist, arguably), this is simply a well structured and fun porter.

Bottle. Black pour with a small tan head. Dark malt, hops, roasted coffee and chocolate in the aroma and taste. Almost as much of a hoppy porter/stout than an black IPA. Very good beer.

bookman10 (953) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Pours a dark black with minimal head. Nice bouquet of citrus hops and dark roasted grain. Flavor had touches of coffee, chocolate, licorice, and citrus from the hops and almost a hint of what I thought was mint, but must have been the lavender. Nice black IPA.

wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - NOV 3, 2010
perfect example of why i dont like this style. just doesnt work together, almst tastes like a decent ipa, then almost like a decent porter, then just falls flat and makes you not even want another sip. astringent, hot, roasty, yuck.

Draft: pours dark, black with a tan head. Dusty grainy aroma, and some slight bitterness. Well balanced and delicious.

Scipio (831) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours black with with a full, creamy, reddish tan head. It looks great. Aroma has roasted malts, pine, coffee, mild chocolate, and subtle grapefruit. The taste is heavy in pine that is balanced well with a roasted coffee taste. There is some smokiness in here, while I also find some light citrus undertones of grapefruit. Long roasted aftertaste. Medium in body, while having a more thick texture, with a good amount of carbonation. This is a solid beer, especially if you enjoy this style.

Pours black with tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of licorice and pepper. Taste is chocolate, toffee, coffee, and spicy. Nice BIPA.
