12oz can, Steasy66 tasting at CBC Islington. Thanks Ryan. The aroma is moderate-heavy roast, lighter coffee, chocolate, and faint pine. It pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, burnt notes, roast, and pine. It’s medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, another good one from Ryan.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours black with a vague tint of orange and a creamy, beige head leaving a neat lacework. Roasty nose with a hint of herbal hops. Rich, sweet chocolatey body with an ashy edge and a dry bitterness - deriving from malts rather hops. More so a hoppy Stout in my book - but a pleasant beer alright. 151013 maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle cheers to Ryan. Looks spectacular in the glass. This one has a very appealing hop profile - pine, grapefruit, citric juice, orange & lemon rind. A fair bit of roast in the taste with light milk chocolate behind it all. Bitterness is a little too astringent. Solid stuff pablo951 (691) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Had it out of a can, poured a dark brown hue with a mild malt coffee aroma. The taste is a perfect marriage between a hoppy IPA and some coffee mall! harrisoni (19556) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Can from Ryan. Harsh roast. Decent dark chocolate. Lovely chocolate. Not too much hop. Good

Not having tried anything from Indeed I was curious after coming away with a six pack at the Great Taste of the Midwest. A solid black IPA has few flaws and makes me want to actively seek out a few more offerings the next time I find myself in Minnesota.
Aroma / Appearance - A fluid black base pours with a rich chocolately texture. Soft edges and minimal head give it nice contrast. Chocolate, earthy hops, and warmth permeate the air like a malty porter.
Flavor / Palate - Burnt caramel, chocolate, and muddy hops sweep across the tongue. Transitioning to a smooth finish the texture is refreshing without being harsh. I wish I could have tried a few at the festival now.
Deep black pour with a creamy, brown head. The aroma has roasted malt, pine, and some dark chocolate. It has a medium body with creamy texture and soft carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a very dry, roasted finish. maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2013
Can from Zipp’s in Minneapolis. Dark caramel roast, dark fruits, chocolate, and hop blend. Dark roast initial / carbonation and strong hopping take it up into a slightly harsh resinous attack / floats back down into pleasing bitter notes. Medium body. Interesting mouthfeel and flavor progression. Very tasty and unusual stuff. barn0216 (551) - California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Can from a buddy. Very dark brown, not much foam. Hoppy aroma with some roast. Nicely balanced flavor: hops, roast, ash, coffee grounds. Solid beer.
