COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pinch of black malt and a splash of roasted barley break this IPA apart from tradition, Cascadian Dark. Join the shady revolution.

Slight burnt toast & herbs (oregano) aroma. Looks like black coffee in the glass with a soapy looking head. Flavor is a clean mix of burnt toast & bitter citrus notes. Overall, tasty and easy drinking.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized creamy beige head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was floral hops, a bit of vague fruity hops and bitter roasty malts. The flavor was sharp and very bitter with strong floral hops and dry roasty malts and a hint of coffee. The finish was long, dry, bitter and floral. Medium body. Eh.

cheap (4350) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 On tap at the house of 1000 beers. Very dark but not quite black. Tan creamy head. Smells sweet and hoppy, perhaps aroma is a tad volatile. Big bitter what else can you say bitter dark choco impy stout impressions on the palate. No co2 and its quite mouth coating dark beery. Comes across more like an impy stout of some sort.

Hammy78 (802) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle purchased at the Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo. Pours just as it says, pitch black with a half finger to a finger of white/ tan head and drippy residual sugar lace. Aroma is hoppy, but not overpowering. Also smells like a Belgian brew with a sweetness and some yeast. Taste is bitter but not what I expected, it comes on quick and leaves just as fast. There is only one downfall to this beer and that is on the tail end their is a taste of what I can only describe as pennies. For all other purposes an awesome brew.

Pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Smells of floral hops. Smooth taste with just a hint of bitterness at the finish. One of the better IPAs I have tried. I generally do not like them.

I thought this was a nice black ale. I dont think it was anything special but it had some good flavor and it wasnt too complex.

screigh (481) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Looks purple when held to a light. Very little head on my pour. Aroma is sweet and dusty. Taste is very clean and not much going on. Somewhat creamy mouth feel. Bitterness balances the malt nicely. I wish it had more hop aroma and flavor.

Dark red in appearance, the aroma is of pine/spruce with some roasted malts. Decent malt tip to it while the pine in the hops dominate but don’t ruin it. Not bad all together.

from bottle. great creamy, yet hoppy beer. not as much roast as other bipa’s but is priced to be semisessionable and it really is despite medium to thick mouthfeel. great combo of porter and ipa beers. mine was the one listed in the alias. great beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours just about black with a moderate, fluffy tan head that lasted until nearly mid-glass and laced the glass well. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate, malt and pine. Very nice combination. The flavor steps back just a bit from the aroma. It begins with malt and is immediately followed by some fairly resinous piney hops. Its good, but I’d like a little of the chocolate promised in the nose. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Very solid beer.
