philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at beer dinner. Pours opaque black with thin off-white head. Thin roast/smokey aroma. Flavor light salt, caramel carried by light body. Dry finish. This drinks almost like a lager. I wanted a deeper flavor and more body.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. The aroma is toasty coffee at first, then a big bitterness. Some chocolate. Earthy tea notes. Almost smoky. A moderate fruit aspect as well. Medium body and medium carbonation.

On tap at Lost Nation. Roasty aroma with slight vegetable notes. Smoky smoky taste, toasty as well, with chocolate notes. Not the best, but certainly enjoyable.

Bulk_Carrier (5034) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Sample glass at Growler Garage. They had it labeled as a black IPA, but I see it labeled here as a porter and the more I think about it during my tasting, I have to agree with ratebeer. I think the bar has it wrong, anyways, heres the rest. The appearance was a black color with a bar pours kind of head (rating adjusted accordingly). The smell had some roasty chocolatey malts with some coffee beans. Theres a nice sweet chocolatey aftertaste running into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs good as a Porter. Id have again, good stuff, but not a Black IPA.

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Sample at the source. Pours a black color with nearly no head and very clear looking. Aromas hit the nose with coffee and caramel. Flavor follows the nose and is sweet. Light body and super thin texture for something listed as a porter. I was thinking it was more like a brown or possibly black ipa. Super thin and watery for a porter. Average carbonation and slight bitter finish.

AirForceHops (6954) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Sample at LN. Indeed pitch black color, fast dying head. Aroma is ashy. Roasted grain and chocolate. The flavor starts ashy then turns into a light chocolate. Body is about right for the gravity, lean. Light lingering charred grain finish.

Seems like this could have had some nice stuff to it, but it seemed like it was infected/going a bit sour, and that didnt work for me.
