Draft at the brewpub. Has all the visuals of a porter, nuff said. The beer delivers one of the better balances I’ve experienced between a choco-malt base and a nice, even bitter finish. Really, really good. (#5812, 10/9/2014)

On tap at American Flat Bread / Zero Gravity: Pours a dark brown / black with a thin tan head. Aroma is mainly roasted malts, with a bit of caramel and pine notes. Great tasting beer, full bodied with aggressive waves of hops nicely balanced by the roasted malts. Slightly sticky on the palate, and the great flavor seems to coat the entire mouth. Really great beer, my favorite Zero Gravity pour that I’ve had.

On tap at Blackback pub. This was poured into at tulip and I just had HF’s James for comparison. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Lacing was somewhat there; lightly stringy. The smell had a crisp sharp bitter cocoa bitterness hitting the coffee notes and then some strong citrus and piney bitterness coming in to bring the bitterness a bit up. The taste was mainly the same with a decent dry and bittersweet aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a decent dryness (of a Black IPA) showing its true face and trying to make it "unsessionable." Overall, as a Black IPA, well, somehow, this one comes out a bit better than HF’s only because the aftertaste and finish aren’t as harsh as HF’s. I’d still have HF’s but Zero Gravity beat them out on style guidelines, just saying.

Tap pour into snifter glass at American Flatbread/Zero Gravity place Burlington. Appearance is almost a nitro looking IPA. Black with over a full finger tannish head. Nice lacing. Aroma has a roasted malty and chocolate presence. Little bit of bitterness can be found. Taste continues with vanilla and chocolate notes. Crisp and fresh which is welcomed. Toasted malts carry through to the finish with bittersweet characteristics making up the aftertaste. Silky, smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good effort overall.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This floral and roasty Black IPA delights with its cushy mouthfeel and sustained fir-like finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the blackened brown.
-Drinkability is quite high despite the flavor intensity.
-All flavors are ably balanced.
-Roasted malts are soft enough to let the floral hop aromatics shine through.

On tap at American Flatbread Burlington.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Tap at BT> Pours a deep dark brown nearing black- ok thin lasting head. Aroma is grassy, piney minty hops, with some citrus hints, light toast and light chocolate in there as well. Flavor is slight burnt toast, some hints of roast and chocolate, but the main thing was the hops- medium to high amount of pine, resin, sap, grass, some grapefruit bitterness in the end. Well done not to overplay the dark malts- seemed fairly clean. Nice.
