UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014 Bottle @ home thx to benzai. Clear dark red brown colour with a deep ruby redness shining through, full off-white head. Smells roasty, chocolate, grapefruit, coffee. Amazing smell. If the taste is as great as the smell this will be my new favorite beer. Tastes some iron, hops, grapefruit, pine, roasty, some roastyness. Amazing beer. When blending the yin and yang myself i didnt achieve this. Full body great carbo. The initial taste of a perfect IPA with the aftertaste of an amazing stout. This is my favorite black IPA. Hell, this is my favorite beer.

AWISLguy (2652) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2016
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc. Black pour with a beige-brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma has caramel and espresso and something herbal. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet chocolate, some bitter coffee flavors, some saltiness. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. The blend is ok. The carbonation is soft. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. Not sure if this is old but there is little hop presence if any. Suspect there are a bunch of dead hops floating around in this one. 13.3

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, but clear around the edges, mahogany with a creamy 1-finger tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, citrus, chocolate and coffee. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt, citrus, roasted coffee and caramel with a little spiciness in the finish. Full/medium body and medium carbonation with a rich, silky mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SG111 (1365) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Sample at B spot, Auburn Hills. Pours dark, tan head. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, some hoppy citrus, minimal coffee and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, citrus. Drinks more like a really hoppy Stout, but I guess youd still call it black ipa territory. Medium mouthfeel. Decent. Doesnt blow my mind.

Rating #2153 - 1/3 Yin and 2/3 Yang in bottle. 2015.11.05 - Willow Park Beer Bash. Pours a thuggy twin brother waiting in the alley black with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and floral piney hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar sweetness that disguises any alcohol on the palate and rounds out the earthy bitterness, and is beyond refreshing. Unreal hoppy black beauty.

the aroma is caramel and hoppy with shades of nuts, toast, pine, citrus and spicy herbs... the taste is caramel and spicy with notes of roasted malt, bitter citrus, pine needles, nuts and spicy grasses... bitter and dry aftertaste...
