Johnroy (39) - Ringwood, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Pours black, with yellowish head. Thoughtis it would taste heavy. It does not. Light taste with a porterish style yet a different aftertase than a porter. Good beer. They should realease as a six pack!

Cavie (4642) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a dark maroon brown color with a muddy, murky appearance. Tannish head. Aroma is sweet malts with sugary syrup notes. Lots of hops in this as well. Floral and citrus. Flavor is very roasted with toasted bready characteristics. Different to say the least. Bitter burnt finish.

Opaque black, with medium brown head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor is roasty malt with subtle bitter hop finish. Light bodied, smooth. Originally took this for a Schwarzbier.

BREWMUSKCLES (2651) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
it has an initial flavor of hop and dark fruit like plum and prune with a touch of cherry. this morphs into a hoppy brew with some acrid smoke and coffee with a touch of chocolate. palate is a bit light, caustic and frothy. the finish is moderate in length. this is a good take on the style but a little light in the pants. and normally i like the bigger girls! still good.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
12oz bottle pours black with dark khaki head. Aromas of roasty malt hop resin and chocolate upfront, some piney citrus rine in backround. Taste is bitter but flavorfull. Body is full and creamy very palatable. Finish leaves you with a chocolate milk feel similer to a guinness maybe thats why i like this so much

It sure takes you by surprise when you read IPA and no other information on the bottle, then pour out a slightly hazy dark brown liquid. As expected, citrus hops dominate the aroma, but only bitterness can shine through the thick haze of darker beer. Not my favorite, or even worthy of approval.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 Extremely piney citrus nose, almost like pinesol cleaner. Flavor has a citric bite, with underlying earthiness and hint of smoke. Dunno, maybe I was just in the mood for an ipa, but this was fantastic to me... Tried it again. Aroma is even better than I remembered. good earthy grounding. This is probably the best magic hat beer I’ve had...

Serve this one very chilled. Comes dark with a great forming head. Chocolate malt taste. Good overall.

First sip I took of this beer was out of a bottle, and I nearly spit. Drinking my second poured into a pint glass. Dark brown, almost black, in color. Would have been nice to know it was a black IPA. Roasty smell and taste, coffee-ish. Absolutely no hops on my tongue. Bitter coffee finish. Can’t finish the bottle.
