On tap at Dark Horse. The brewpub bills this as a brown IPA. I guess it was inevitable considering the popularity of black IPAs. But this doesn’t work near as well and, in fact, is a strange concoction of earthy tastes with none of the roast found in either browns or stouts. Unappealing in appearance, the body is a muddy brown. Tan head, mostly diminishing. The aroma displays notes of resin, grapefruit, citrus and a hint of floral hops along with notes of toasted grain, bread and earthiness. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation. Slightly alcoholic finish. The aroma is pretty nice, but the flavor leaves an odd aftertaste of dried plant stems.

huh. finally found this in the database. Unimpressive beer mostly. Very well dry hopped but it fell apart upon first sip for me. It didnt live up to the aroma. Mostly just a run of the mill IPA. Good, but not great. Had on tap at Dark Horse a few weeks ago.

Weird, weird beer. Seemingly almost no aroma hops - very grainy, brown malty in the aroma, a touch of pine maybe. The flavor is definite grapefruit and other citrus, how weird. I kept smelling this for 15 minutes to try to figure it out.Nice color, nice body, very easy to drink. It is possible with the new tap tower that the beer was colder than in the past, but I doubt it. BTW, construction has begun for the expansion!

This one was shared by jale (Jim) a great BA, and an even better person. A: Pours a dark black hue with tones of amber showing through. The head was nice and tall and tan in color. Good retention with some nice lace. S: Rather dank and hoppy. Weed, and grass up front. Mild citrus notes and hints of roast. T: Roasty goodness, bold grapefruit and mild lemon rind. Notes of mild green grass, and a bit of caramel. M: Medium in body, smooth, bitter finish. D: Great, a real wonderful black IPA. Great beer shared by a Great BA. Jim is one of a kind, a BA that I am forever indebted to.

Random great guy walking through the DLD crowd with a growler offered me some. Thanks to him, I had one of the best black IPA’s I have ever had. Real dark pour with tints of red and a beige head. The aroma was hoppy, fruity. The beer was tasty, hoppy up front with a nice roasted malt to balance it out.

12 oz. bottle shared by some random good people at DarkLord Day 2010 .A Google search leads me to which calls it a Black IPA .

Appearance: Pours an iced tea brown with a beige head.

Aroma: Lemony dank hop goodness.

Taste: Big bitter grapefruit hops with a bread crust malty backbone.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with modest carbonation.

Overall: I love this beer. One of the best dark hoppy beers I’ve had.
