The time between midnight and the next sunrise eh? Wonderfully, this beer is perfect anytime and was enjoyed on a sunny midday with a great friend. Dark, almost black with a thick tan head. A good meaty, mid carbonated body with a bit of oiliness. Sort of tastes like a hopped up, sweeter and less dry Guinness, that’s a good thing. Bitter coffee and pine resin flavours catapult this one into 4/5 range. nimbleprop (8297) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2014
4oz pour at Jack Rose DC. Pours an oddly murky brown with some bright, cream colored head. Very muddy appearance. Nose has some watermelon, leafy hop, pickled watermelon rind, vinous, lemon, plenty of C hops, a hint of bread crust. Flavor has some malty sweetness, a hint of caramel, orange peel, white grape, pine, soap, lemon. Sticky finish. radagast83 (8011) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Draft at Jack Rose. Poured a dark brown color with a tan. Aroma was pleasant citrus notes - grapefruit character, nice roasted notes. Nice citrus character, earthy notes, malt, coffee. Nice and refreshing - nice balance here, perhaps a bit heavy on the hop, something that is often missing in these Black IPAs. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2014

Tap at hops and pie. Clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, lemon, citrus, spice, light pine and chocolate. Flavor is citrus, lemon, roasted malt, light pine and chocolate. Light to medium bodied, slightly dry and bitter end. stevoj (4966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2014
Dark and deep, high fluffy beige head. Roast grain bitterness throughout. Like an imperial stout with hops. authenticmead (69) - West Coast, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Prolly the nastiest "CDA" I've ever had. Taste like cement and dirt with harsh bitterness. Not much in the way of hop flavor or aroma..
