Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, purchased from Bottle King in Hackettstown, NJ. Nice aromas of chocolately malt and piney hops. Taste mostly hops, I wish there was more malt character. Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2015 Stout black/ brown color with brown head. Aroma of pine, roast malt, cocoa, & mango. Taste starts sweet cocoa them hoppy pine and bitter dark chocolate. I guess you could call this a black IPL, very tasty. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2014

It’s a couple things and they are middle of the road at best why make this beer? BeerdedDave (1875) - Beckley, USA - APR 28, 2014
black color with a thick head; chocolaty, roasted malt aroma; roasted malt flavor, though fairly bitter and hoppy with a bitter finish

Poured into tulip. Dark brown with pillow like 2 finger tan head. Smells like chocolate and toffee. Tastes like hops upfront with a toffee and chocolate backbone. Medium, velvet mouthfeel. Pretty tasty!

Clear, dark brown coloured body with no head at all and no real opacity. Aroma of cardboard, metal, prunes and a touch of roasted malt - no hops at all to smell. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt and oatmeal up front with a surprisingly nice malt profile and some subdued creamy and milk notes and a touch of alcohol and bitterness at the end. Aftertaste shows only the roasted malt notes with nothing else to speak of, aside from some light toffee sweetness. Overall, a surprisingly decent beer after the smell was very mediocre - but this isn’t a black IPA, a porter at best, but not as bad as I thought it would be! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$1.70 sampled at home in Washington on 24-March-2014.

Fresh bottle from NJ. Black bodied, stoutish aroma. Decent on target, though less bold than most others in the style I have had. samsmith33 (772) - - MAR 9, 2014
Aroma Is toasted barley, light chocolate, coffee. Dark brown color, creamy white head. Taste is toffee caramel. A touch of bittersweet. Very nice. Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brown pour with half a finger of mocha head that leaves a good lacing. Nuts, pine, caramel, citrus. Lighter than expected body with slightly bitter finish.
