Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and moderately bitter, roasty finish with hint of chocolate.
Palate: medium-to-full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Great, lasting aroma. Sheets of lacing. Sweet flavor balances the bitterness of the hops. Nice, smooth palate.

On tap at Fort George. Colour...completely black with a thin tan head. Nose...loads of molasses and roasted savoury nuts that meld well with the hops. Palate...bitter, but sweet as well, with more molasses notes and brown sugar syrup. There’s graham cracker and sailor jack on the mid palate and notes of Moravian ginger cookies on the finish. The finish is also lightly bitter and quite long. Oakes (19434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Medium brown with big protein(?) chunks. Citrusy, toasty aroma with a little bit of chocolate. Very bitter...bitter hop, bitter chocolate, roast. This has to be the most assertive example of this I’ve ever had. Well, I’m down. Marheb (6336) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Merci à McBerko pour la cannette! Chocolat amer, esspresso, caramel chaud et noix de coco assailli par un coulis résineux très vert et des agrumes pales très amères et sèches. La façon que les saveurs sont acheminés et la souplesse du corps en font un bête de buvabilité féroce. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is a lot more on the IPA end of the spectrum than the roasty end. I get a lot of floral elements with just a bit of citrus, and only a hint of roasting in there. Taste had a lot more of the roastiness to it, with a very healthy dose of the hoppy bitterness. Very pleasant drink.

16 oz can from New Seasons - Poured black with about an inch of tan head that lasted. Looks delicious! Malt not overpowering, but definitely there. Good hop balance. Some coffee tones. Very nice black IPA. skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
A nice and smooth Cascadian Dark. As 5000 said, it’s a bit more on the lighter side of everything, roast, hop, and sweetness, but it all works together well. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Can:   Deep brown, dirty, muddy, sediment floats about, moderate frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Roast, hop bitterness, , and a little campfire on the nose.   Citrus pith and peel up front, not as roasty as the nose suggested.   Very soft roasted malts otherwise.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lighter example, light finish, moreso a Black Pale Ale me thinks. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Another great can design from the Astoria brewery. Love the glyphs on it. This is super roasty. If you want a Black IPA to be 50/50 then this one is not it. This chooses roasty and coffee notes. Even the bitterness is more coffee grounds than hops. As it warms more spruce notes pop up. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Nearly black color with tan head. Pine, dank, grassy hop aromas. Medium body. Pine, floral, spicy hop flavors with some dark chocolate, pale malt sweetness___tasty good
