COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Noir is a delectable Black IPA, dripping with piney, aromatic Centennial hops. The malt base is dark and rich, anchored by organic black malt. This provides a strong foundation for the extravagant kettle hopping and dry-hopping that this beer experiences. Enjoy with a night-light.

jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Aroma is smoky and hoppy. Thick Long lasting caramel head sits on top of a dark brown thick looking beer. First impression is creamy, second is hop. Finally, a nice smoke taste. Has all the right elements, but still feels a little lacking.

Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
On tap at the Stags Head, Manhattan - 01/03/12. Dark dark brown verging on black with a good finger of tan head. Malt nose allied to slightly piney hops and a little licquorice. Piney citrus hops and medium roasted malts combine finishing with a nice bitterness note. Medium bodied amd carbonation with quite a dry finish. Enjoyable Black IPA.

aracauna (3585) - Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Dark, about what you’d expect for a porter. Dense, creamy tan head. Has a few dark nuts and dried fruit noted you’d expect in an imperial stout. Not really that hoppy.

jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2012
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, citrusy hops, and some fruity notes. Flavor strong of the malts and hops. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

werberski (18) - New York, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Head is thin. Taste is of piney hops. Finish is moderately bitter. Body could use more backbone to it. At 8% it is very drinkable. Finish is drier than expected. Not bad.

3.4
Lubiere (13772) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
A dark brown IPA with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with nice floral hops, butterscotch, not bad. In mouth, a smooth nutty chocolate malt, floral hops, light menthol notes, quite nice. Tasted at Raquette River Beer and Wine Fest, July 13 2012.

3.3
Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Serving: Draft. Almost black pour with a creamy tan head. The nose is a mix of roast, chocolate, and pine. The flavor starts off roasty and chocolaty but transitions to a pine and earthy bitterness. Somehow it doesn’t quite all work together. Smooth on the tongue though.

3.5
TATE (407) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Bottle from Paul. Didn’t get to pour, was on the golf course. This is a well balanced beer. I was shocked when I looked at the label and saw it was 8.2%. I couldn’t sense any heat or flavor from the high alcohol. There is a lot of roasted flavors almost like a highly hopped stout. The hops were not overpowering though which I liked leading to a good balance between the malt sweetness and the hop bitterness.
