500 ml. bottled on 02-04-14. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of creamy bubbles. Big aroma of grapefruit zest followed by some resin and mocha. Tastes of fresh grapefruit with a slather of unsweetened dark chocolate, orange zest and dark roasted coffee bean. Long finish is mocha and dry oats. Near-medium body has too much carbonation and it fizzes up in the mouth a bit, but definitely keeps things from getting sticky. Above all, theres a great balanced flavor and no overly-acidic finish from too much roast as some recent BIPAs have done to me.

Bulk_Carrier (4999) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Received in trade. Consumed Feb 6. Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a dark brown close to black colored body with a decent two fingered white to off-white close to tan head that lasts for a good minute and a half. One ring of foam does appear but ends up sliding down into the beer. The smell has a nice earthy and smoky and roasted bitterness in the front through the coffee, however, theres a nice pungent aroma of the citrus hops trying to come through, decent malty background. The taste is mainly bitter through the hops and the coffee reacting and overtaking the malt presence that tried to come through in the smell. It has a somewhat dry and bitter coffee aftertaste and finish. The palate is light - almost but more likely closer to a medium sort of body, comes off as its trying to be sessionable. Carbonation comes across like a good American Black Ale should. Overall, for the most part, I like it, but I think Id rather look for some other Black Ales before this.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
Big head Todd on dark brown beer. Aroma is more hops than malt. Malty brown ale with nice hops but unfortunately the Maine chemical edge to the flavour. The most unique "house" aspect I have found in a beer. Comes across as cool but.

Pours black with a 3 finger creamy espresso head. Mild roasted nose character with a touch of smile. Taste is nice. good malty roasted charcoal with some woody notes and a touch of chocolate. Very light low IBU IPA with a nice roast note. exactly as described.

_angst_ (4778) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2016
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours pretty much black with a small dark mocha head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and slightly herbal with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, grapefruit juice, mango, peaches, dark roast coffee, liquorice, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, tiny fruity and herbal. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny dry, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee and grapefruit. Solid BIPA. Nothing extreme.

jbruner (4555) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Pours an opaque brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of big piney hops and lots of strong chocolate malt and a hint of earthy roast. Taste is even more toward the pine and chocolate, less roast, mild bitterness. Right along the style, solid beer.

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Dark brown body, medium off-white head, spotty lacing. Pine, citrus, roast, a little earth and chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate carbonation, slight awkward finish as the malt and hops try to work things out with each other.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
0.5l bottle from Good Beers NYC. There is no reference to this being a #2,but its bottled 11.06.2013 so its as fresh as a mildly put fresh.. Pours a lovely looking deep dark brown body with a big really lacing and lasting light brown top. Smells amazing, lots of fresh green hops, a good amount of coffee, roasted malts and just plain old delicious. There is even a little bit of salty peanuts and ice cream in this. Could nose this for hours. Taking a sip i get a really spot on comfortable carbonation level with a smooth oily mouthfeel. Deliciously blended flavors with a good amount of coffee and bitter almost stingy fresh piney hops. Really balanced (as all the beers Ive had from Maine has been) and it has a dry chocolate paper thing that Im really enjoying right now. Roasted almost a little bit burned ashy finish, a little bit of minerals and soft dry mouthing in the aftertaste. Really tasty! 20.06.2013

Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, light chocolate, coffee. Taste is balanced hoppy and coffee bitter with a mellow sweet chocolate finish that ends in roasted coffee. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation. One of the best black IPAs Ive had.
