One of my absolute favorite beers. Pours black with a light tan head. It has a hoppy flavor with a mild coffee aftertaste. Flavorful and smooth. I definitely recommend it! Mojastic (1) - - JAN 5, 2012 does not count
At Liberty Station, nearly black with a nice frothy beige head, taste of chocolate. Very very drinkable. ozarkspops (368) - - MAY 9, 2013
Espresso color pour. Thick mocha head. Heavy lacing. Very strong hop aromas. Pine, spice, dank, and some citrus hop notes. Noticeable dark chocolate aroma in the background. Flavor is great. Beginning if flavor is dominated by piney and danky hop flavors. Then gives way to dark chocolate and coffee roast which isn't overpowering. Finish is a perfect bland of the hop flavors and bitterness with chocolate/coffee sweetness.

On tap at Sugar Land Saucer. Pours black with a big, thickly lacing, frothy beige head. Aroma full of cascade; pine and citrus hops, and roasted malt. Taste is very well balanced between roasted malt and substantial hop bitterness. Medium bodied and silky smooth with a nice dry, bitter finish. Quite good! Houston brewing just keeps on improving...finally. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 18, 2013
This is the strongest (in terms of quality) beer I’ve had from Karbach yet. The regular hopadillo is a bit astringent for my tastes, but the addition of the chocolate malts really balances it out, not to mention the spectacular aroma.

Bomber. Wonderful up front, nice beige head over the color of cola. Excellent aroma, fresh florals with toasty malts. Spicy and hoppy , but, much more dark fruit on the tongue, especially as it warmed. Nice crisp finish. Well done. jgb9348 (6480) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a nice, thick, three centimetre tall, nice and frothy tan head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, oatmeal, nuts, caramel and tons of nice hops layered with pine, grass, herbs and a bit of resin. Medium-bodied; Deep dark malt flavour with roasty notes, some earthiness, but a lot of caramel and even slightly smoked malt grain flavour with a nice hop backbone showing pine and grass with a smooth, but deep finish. Aftertaste shows a great blend of stronger and grassier hops meshed perfectly with the roasty malt, nut and smoke/burnt notes that would couple well with barbecue. Overall, a nice black IPA with tons of flavour and complexity, all showing a great balance. Great to sample and I wish I could get this locally - a very well made Black IPA that shows well throughout - I’m very glad I brought this home with me from Texas. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Central Market in Houston, Texas on 10-August-2013 for US$5.35 sampled at home in Washington on 17-October-2013.
