3/25/2012. From bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Malty aromas with fruit and caramel. Malty flavors with light hops. Unfortunately like most Magic Hat brews, this one falls short of being interesting.

generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a Pint glass. ("3/4 Pint of Ale" as they say on the label.) The label has a freshness date of "May 31 2011" and the abv is listed at 6%. Appearance: It has a very dark look in the glass with some very deep dark garnet colored highlights showing through the beer. I also noticed some fine sediment hanging in suspension within the body. To cap off this beer I got a dense tan head which stands two fingers tall. This head has excellent retention and coats the glass with lacing. Smell: I get a dark roasted malt character with hints of coffee and caramel. Hops are lighter than the malt and add some citrus and herbal notes to the nose. Taste/Palate: The palate opens up with mild sweetness, roasted malt, coffee and toasted bread with citrus hop notes quickly moving in. It finishes with pleasant herbal/leafy hop bitterness fading slowly off the tongue. It has a creamy and smooth mouth feel with pleasant soft carbonation. Notes: It come off more as a Porter than IPA but is still very tasty and beautiful.

ROGUE (2209) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a murky, dark brown color with a good sized foamy, light brown head.Aroma is a mix of roasted malt and slightly musty, grassy hops. Taste is roasted malt sweetness upfront with the slightest hint of bitterness midway with an odd bitter to sticky sweet finish. Medium to light body, ample fizzy carbonation.

Tydlig sötma i aroman. Lite lätt i kroppen. Ingen direkt fyllighet i smaken. Citrus i eftersmaken.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with ruby red highlights and a thin off-white head. Roasted malt and slightly chocolatey aroma with some light hop notes underneath it. Chocolate malts and a nice hop bite at the beginning of the flavor. The chocolate and roasty malt really blend well and only enhance the hop bitterness. Slightly sweet and roasty aftertaste.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4912) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
Malty chocolate aroma with barely any hoppiness. The taste is slightly sour mostly malt not much hop bitterness. This black IPA focuses too much on the malt & doesn’t have enough bitterness I think... As it warmed up it got better but still not really IPA like more like a well done stout or porter.
