On tap at McGregor’s. This was a different take on the black IPA a bit lighter and with less roasted notes, with the biscuity maltiness combined with some hop floral and fruity notes. Heavily recommended by the bartender and he gave us samples 1st. Also he did a vertical with a more traditional black, the gritty, roasted/toasted grainy hoppy monster. Also note in the taste this was a bit sweet with a sour finish or edge.

mcberko (9355) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma is very mild - toasted nuts, roasted malt and only a light hoppiness. Flavour is also mild with slightly roasted malt and citrus hops, with a mild lingering bitterness. A little watery, but decent.

12 ounce bottle from Total Wine West Richmond, VA, opened 4/2/11. Pours a dark copper tinted brown color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter floral, leafy and citrus hops. The taste is bitter citrus hops and mildly roasted hops. Medium bodied. Fairly well balanced. Decent.

williamherbert (1385) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Aroma is roasted barley malts, sweet citrusy hops round it out. Touch of grapes and stone fruits. Appearance is deep purple, nearly brown. Murky, with not a ton of head. The flavor is roasted malts, but a little sweet, milky porter thrown in; mildly roasted, with some rye spices. Dates and raisins and sweet grapes. Tangerine and grapefruit finish, balances well with the malt’s rounded sweetness. Palate is ashy, oily exterior. A beautifully balanced IPA. Not just a stout with hops tossed in. A medley of complementary flavors. Very good example of style.

fiercepanda (608) - Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2011
A black beer with a small tan head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is floral and earthy with a hint of malt. The flavor is also very floral and a bit smoky with a light bitterness. It is hard to reconcile the flavors with the appearance, but it is really quite good. A balanced brew with a decent body, certainly one I would try again.

thegreenrooster (3537) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Pour is a black with a small white head. Aroma is plenty of roasted malt with a nice resiny hop. Flavor is the same, a very nice roasted chocolate malt then comes a very nice hop profile that leaves a lot of bitter resin on the tounge as this goes down. Wow Widmer I didn’t know you had it in you. This is a very tasty beer and on the top tier of the style
