A very dense frothy head. Wonderful aroma. Taste is a rich, roasted malt coupled with bitter hops. A perfect beer. Love the black IPA style! Broncowaldon (129) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Love this style. Big rich coffee toffe aroma with great earthy hop aroma. Flavor is crisp toast and crisp type of noble hop character. Finishes super crisp and clean. A great bIPA LiMuBai (222) - - OCT 28, 2014
Roasted chocolaty, citrus and pine aroma that pours a deep black, with a tan head. The flavor is full bodied with a distinct bitter/hoppy finish. BennyBinion (22) - Canyon, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours pitch black with a nice milk chocolate colored head. It has a sweet, dark, and hoppy aroma. It starts off piney with hints of sweet chocolate with a bitter floral aftertaste. An excellent black IPA! bobroman (1186) - Torun, POLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Intensive hoppy citrus and roasted malt aroma. Dark brown almost black body. Medium size long-lasting brown head with good lacing. Strong hoppy bitterness in taste with medium sweetness. Citrus fruits with toffe. Long-lasting bitter mouthfell. Definetly one of the best CDA’s.

Dark brown color with very little head. Malty, chocolate and orange smells. Coffee and grapefruit tastes. 0R9H3U5 (27) - Hudsonville, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2014

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Aroma of citrus and malts. Pours an opaque black with a mostly dissipating khaki head and sparse lacing. The taste is malt up front with a hint of white fruit in the middle and a wonderful grapefruit hoppy taste in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent beer. Will drink again. Good job, Sierra Nevada!.

Pours a dark mahogany with a thick, light tan head. Smoky, woody, roast malt aroma has hint of coffee - and a lot of appeal. Hoppy, woody, smoky flavor features a touch of mocha. This beer successfully blends the characteristics of a good IPA and a quality stout. Smooth ,fizzy texture rounds out another winner from Sierra Nevada.
