Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours brown with an orange hue and a dense and lacing off-white head. Bretty, farty nose atop some sour berries. Medium body, heavy funk and barnyard, very subtle roast and a distinct lactic tartness. Clearly a Sour - not much left of the original Black IPA. 270413 phaleslu (10277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks a ton, Blake! Bottled 7/12, #274/1531. Pours a murky plum-brown-amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of plums, dust, spuce, earthy funk, and some roast. Flavor of plums, lemon, earthy funk, oak, and roasted malts. Medium-bodied, with a tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Never would have thought of this as a black IPA. beernbourbon (1592) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to Blake, thanks! Pour is cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma is faintly tart, light sweet, and light dark fruit. Solid, not overwhelming. stumpyiliz (217) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Soapy head from slow pour. Beer comes through with a lot of piney, earthy and funky brett nose. Initial taste is big on the brett into the bitterness of the spruce tips. Interesting to say the least.
