Tap at Blind Tiger. Super dank hoppy nose, lots of citrus, some roast and chocolate. Taste is fairly dry, lots of bitter chocolate, light brown sugar, boat loads of earthy and citrus pith hops. Rocking.

Lukaduke (3045) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 17, 2012
750ml from brewery. Pours a slick black color with a big three finger off white foam that sticks and laces nicely. Aromas a re roasted chocolate, citrus and pine. On the palate its lighter than I expected... it poured like a porter but the mouthfeel is much more inline with an IPA. Great rasted chocolate notes provide a great base for some ripe clean hop flavors of pine and citrus. A nice clean refreshing finish that is more hop bitterness than roasty malty stickiness. A true black ipa that is another must try from the Hill !

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Draft at Capones in Norristown, PA. Pours pitch black with a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lace left behind. Slightly floral hop aroma countered by slightly roasted malt notes. Hints of pine and citrus along with chocolate, toffee and toast. Not much wheat character and the nose is kind of bland. Medium bodied and fuller than expected with a nice balance of dry, bitter hops and roasted makt. Could use some sweetness and theres not much wheat character. Dry, bitter, piny hops up front linger over hints of chocolate, coffee, toast and oatmeal. Subtle citrus presence along with some grapefruit and faint orange/lemon zest. Decent and well balanced but nothing about this reminds me of wheat beer. Also, could use more sweetness.

pushkinwow (2691) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Black with a light mocha creamy head. Slight roasted malt, toasted hops and grains. Light body, moderate carbonation, but bitter, bit of coffee, becomes dry and a little more bitter on the end. Was initially too cold - as it warmed up the complexity really started to shine through - also a much better finish.

ThirstyBird (2655) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2013
catching up with an old rating from 2010. From a growler thanks jedwards! Appears super dark cola color with a nice tan head than falls to a blanket. Smell is citrus, chocolate and dark malt. The taste is slightly sweet up front, lightly bitter in the middle with a subtle dryness on the aftertaste. Medium body with elegant, smooth fine carbonation.

BrewBoxer (2614) - New York, New York, USA - APR 8, 2011
Draft at rnh. Herbal and grassy with a citrus fruit tang but with very dark and roasted malt. Chocolate and coffee notes. Hints nuts and spicy rye. Deliscious.

Slipstream (2502) - USA - JAN 16, 2012
On tap at Capones. Black pour with a persistent little head. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Unlike other Fosters I have come across, this one is full flavored, with lots of hops and toasted grains. It is hard to believe this is a wheat ale. It is spicy, citrusy, with perfume-like aromas that come thru as it warms. Really good.
