Draft. Amazing BIPA aroma, fruity pepples (cascade, centennial), strong smoke. Taste is real strong smoke, bacon, leather. Well done, malt taste a bit over cooked.

nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Solid black IPA with smooth maltiness and lots of bitter hops. Finishes very dry with a peppery bitterness. Flavors of dark malts, bread, agave nectar, lemon, and black pepper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black poor with medium khaki head. Aroma is heavy hop and citrus. Just the right amount of hoppy citrus and malt notes in the taste. This is hands down one of the best Black IPAs ive had. Excellent.

Excellent black IPa, from Champanes. Black bodied, smooth, juicy more than roasty. A gem worth seeking out.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a brilliant dark brown/black that you can't see through. There is a nice light khaki colored head that fades down to a nice film, leaving some nice lace as it goes. The aroma is quite hoppy and citrusy for a dark beer, which is just lovely. There is a light roasted malt character on the very end. The flavor shows a little roast on the front and then fades through a great hoppiness. There isn't lovely lingering aftertaste and the mouth feel is just right for a nice DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wheelz843 (233) - Grand Island, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2013
bottle. pours a very thick, almost black color with a thick foamy head. Has a sweet aroma of citrus, hops and flowers. Taste is that of hops and citrus with a nice nutty, bitter finish.

Campy877 (189) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Black IPA? Did not know what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. Has the sweetness from the dark malts and the rich hops flavors of an IPA. Pours a dark almost coffee black with a medium muddy head that fades very slowly. Lacing is thick and uniform. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brewsWITHbeer (7) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013 does not count
On tap at Bar Louies. No aroma hops, faint citrus hop in the flavor. Mostly caramel and chocolate dominate this beer. Also very full mouthfeel. Not really sure what they were going for. This is closer to an American porter but then it would still not be that great. This brewery Is much better than this beer.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle. 11/2/13. Pours opaque brown-black with a thick, fluffy, chocolate head. Aroma is bitter hops, citrus, chocolate, coffee, graham cracker, grass. Smells like a really rich, beautiful CDA. Taste is dry, aggressive, bitter, malty, nice; coffee, cocoa, citrus, grass, bitter hops, creamy. The Crystal Malt really comes through. This is really tasty! Exquisite lacing; the kind you want! Medium carbonation. Full bodied. Really a great beer.
