lownote (583) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours from tap pitch black with a thick foamy white head into a pint glass. Taste is rich in malts and alcohol. Moderate thickness. Really smooth but has a tiny bite in the aftertaste.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Moderate Black IPA example.   Fairly dark at least, and not so much with the pasture.   Decent balance, soft hops, moderate malty base, roasty.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Mild sweetness, a little pith and peel.   Moderate example through and through, but easy to drink and fairly clean.   Seems like a pretty solid example of a Black IPA.   Roasty, sweet, and hoppy.   Enjoying this one more than I thought I would.   Solid!

May 17th 2014 - Boulder Beers 35th Anniversary beer is proud to announce its birthday, donning the label jacket with a simple but powerful image of Boulders nuzzling coziness to the front range, and the jutting, epic red rocks that guard the West. Its a dark beer, but smooth looking, like a freshly dry cleaned tuxedo. The aroma is both hoppy and malty, with some licorice and anise, and then some evergreen smells, like pine and juniper, though steeped in alcohol. The flavor is also hoppy, though not totally bitter. Instead, theres a strong, sharp, pointed hop note out front, with plenty of foam. Its not an extravagant amount of carbonation, but it is definitely fully-foamed. The aftertaste is patterned after the rest of the flavor, with a one dimensional hit of hops, and a little supplementary work from alcohol, giving the sensation of cedar and pine. It improves considerable with warmth, where notes of chocolate and hazelnut are permitted to appear.

Not black, but a very dark brown. Medium bitter with a roasted quality and a little sweetness coming through. Thin to medium body.

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass From: Palm Springs Liquor in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.99 (on sale from $7.99) Purchased: June 14, 2015 Consumed: June 17, 2015 Misc.: Enjoy by Oct. 3, 2014 Poured a black color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan, rocky head. Settled nicely on the top after a few moments. Good amount of layered, foamy, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled roasty malts, chocolate, nuts, Cascade, caramel and toffee. Still pretty good considering it was eight months after the enjoy by date. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted kind of close to the nose, getting smoky, roasty malts. Also Cascade, floral, chocolate, toffee and light Citra hops. Alcohol is well-hidden, but that could be the beer being eight months past due. (Taste - 3.50) Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, smoky finish. (Feel - 3.75) Obviously I would have liked to have this fresh, but it wasnt that bad. Would like to have some more beers from Boulder Beer. (Overall - 3.63) 3.63 82 B

Thisis12ptfont (1157) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Aromas of vanilla, nougat, carbonation, citrus, herbs, pines, slight dark malts, slight chocolate. Appears brownish black with heavy lacing. Taste is pleasantly bitter with big citrus, lemon, vanilla, and candied caramel upfront. Mid palate brings tangerine,orange peel, candied fruits, honey and a unique almost oak-like note. Finishes very piney, hoppy, resinous and bitter with very slight chocolate, dark malt, slick dark malt syrup and toffee maltiness. Overall, very nice stuff. Really IPA forward. If I were blind tasting this Id say its an IPA.

Chudwick (3078) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - APR 23, 2015
bomber with BIPA written all over it. For it being past its prime, it really held up and can only assume the bitterness has weakened. Roast is dominated buy the grassy resin hop aroma. Strong to complex bitterness.

glennmastrange (2807) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy dark bread and toasted for the malt, resin for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of tar, pepper and licorice. Head is small, wispy, light beige with some spots of lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark brown with a red tint. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Great drinkability combined with a nice mix of Black IPA aromas in this beer.

boto (2178) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2015
22oz bottle: this one pours a very dark brown color, yet it is clear. A small tan head that leaves some lacing. Good nose. Some pine, herbal notes, a hint of chocolate and a whiff of alcohol. The taste is good. Big malt body, with just a small underlying sweetness. A pretty fair amount of hops to balance the malts. A touch bitter. Some roasted malts, chocolate, herbal flavors. Some grains and citrus. This is good!
