A stout in every way except IBU. An India Black Ale (IBA). Our guess of what may have been shipped around the horn of Africa to stout-loving British soldiers in India. Starts with an immediate smokiness followed by the familiar bitter of the extended hops bill. Then balanced by the more complex sugars found in honey not being fully processed into alcohol by the yeast. Thus exposing the logical fallacy that stouts cannot be heavily hopped.

Tao from Very Nice. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is roadty, lots of chocolate and vanilla, sweet. Taste is easy, smooth, extremely thin...lacking body. Disappointing.

On tap at Very Nice poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers malt and coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee and bakers cocoa with a smooth dry lingering coffee finish.

Good beer. Roasted malt and floral and pine aromas. Dark as a stout with a creamy head. Medium bodied with strong carbonation, which tended to move it away from stout territory. Bitterness and toast up front that lingered into a woody and slightly smoky maltiness.

Salmoniform (1255) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Dark hue with creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, floral, coffee. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and slightly sharp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness with an astringent bitter following and slight floral finish. Overall this was a bit one dimensional but not bad.

Nearly black with nice toasty coffee nose. Rich chocolate notes, you almost can't taste the 70 ibus ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap at Rackhouse pub, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of roast, coffee, chocolate, nice orange and grapefruit notes mix into some pine and grass, slight spicy notes. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, some grass, pine, sweet caramel and orange going into a slight spicy note, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

notalush (5514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Tap at Rackhouse - black pour with.a sudsy tan head - fair creamy in the mouth - quite sweet for the style, with notes of milk chocolate at first - some moderate roast and acidity later, followed by minty hops - oily finish, with a bit a vegetal character poking through - some off fusel flavors in the finish, too - has potential, but I am not digging it - and since they no longer sell taster pours here because it was "too much of a pain," I am now stuck with a full pint - meh.

Tap @ Rackhouse. Pours a dark brown appearance with a small bubbly brown head. Very roasty malty, charred, chocolate, very piney, bitter herbal hoppy aroma. Milk chocolate, burnt roasty malty, a bit floral, spicy hoppy flavor. A touch thin. Pretty solid brew.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Tap at The Rackhouse in Denver. Deep black with a thin khaki head that leaves great lacing. Chocolaty roast fills the nose with a hint of truffle cream and some strong leafy hop tones. Smooth palate with mild and fine carbonation and a great balanced finish. Flavor is roasty and sweet with some roasted black grains, chocolate, with a big background of balancing bitterness, with notes of piney grassy resin. Bittersweet finish like hoppy chocolate.

Brouwerij (958) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2012
On tap at Very Nice. Pours an opaque dark brown with tan head. Nice retention and some lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, caramel, and a hint of coffee and smoke. Flavor is roasted caramel, nutty, and slight coffee up front, then the hoppiness kicks in. Nice moderate bitter finish that lingers momentarily. Moderate carbonation and a medium body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall, it is similar to an India black ale. Tasty.
