Bottle. Nice tan head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, coffee, chocolate, hops and nuts. More stout than Black IPA, but very good indeed. seth_lfod (329) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours black with a mocha head. Smell is earthy malts and old coffee. Taste is similar... Coffee grains and roasted malts. This really seems more like a thin porter... Not much hop presence. bpar73 (1199) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen. Black pour with a tan head. Citrusy hops and a roasted chocolate flavor. Not overly bitter, a very nice Black IPA. jesperhammer (5017) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 25, 2013

Bottle. The aroma is strong of bitter hops. The taste is for sure if the double kind. Great for a black iipa.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Caramelized molasses, a bit of good earthy compost tea, and tangerine. Interesting, this starts out with all the hallmarks of a Black IPA, the sinamar cocoa powder and cola, the light brisk freshness of hops, but then, the hops never really materialize. I would call this a low to moderately hopped beer. For a Black IPA, this is a pretty good American Baltic Porter, without as much caramel malt depth as it should have. Very warming. It’s a little confused and really needs to turn the hops up if its going to call itself a Double Black IPA. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Nice black IPA from Shorts. Nose is sharp, bitter with plenty of roast. Just like it should be. Zesty flavor with plenty of roast and mild chocolate notes. Nice bitterness with good citrus and a nice balance. Well done! Reynolds314 (3472) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Pretty nice black IPA. Piney and citrusy hops and a roasty chocolate flavor almost reminiscent of a very hoppy porter. Not overly bitter but definitely present. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Draft. Black with beige head. Dark, creamy, rich. Body gives way to a heavy grain and roasted malt profile. Some piney and grassy hops come through delicately on the finish. Fantastic mouthfeel for a truly bold beer. Nicely done!
