Poured from 12oz bottle, pours pitch black with a thick light tan head and sticky lacing through out the entire glass, aroma has a good amount of citrus and pine with a kick of chocolate as well, flavor is of more roast and chocolate on the front end with some pine and hops in the finish, pretty solid.

On tap at World of Beer Easton on 3/11/14. Clear dark brown in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and chocolate along with piney and grassy hops. Flavor starts with piney hops, then moves to a bit of citrus before a chocolate malt finish. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Dearer pious at cheesies with my friend Nate. Black pour with crey off white head. S'mores and biscuits. Malts. Choclate. Complex beer and delicious. Love it Finhead (1761) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2015
A nearly, black pour with a tan head and some sediment. The aroma has pine and lemon with a hint caramel. It has a medium body with somewhat slick texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a roasted finish. GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and fruity hops. Taste is a nice balance of roasted malt and hops. One of the best black ipa’s in my opinion. Great lacing shown on each sip.

From notes. This is a really enjoyable black IPA. It might not be the most intense, but it’s strength is in its balance. It’s a very nice IPA with some firm hop bite and a bit of pine and citrus aroma, but it has just enough roasted barley flavor to remind you that it’s definitely a distinct style from traditional IPA. yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2011
From cask. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted dark malty, mild smoked and dark chocolate. Bitter, dark to hard roasted and dense malty. Bitter and dry roasted finish. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2011

Deep brown, close to black, colour with a minor head. Aroma is liquorice, some mild roasted notes as well as caramel. Flavour is liquorice, chocolate, some dark fruityness, syrup, wood and mild earthy and floral hops. Balanced and quite nice.
Draft. Pours deep brown with a thin beige head. Light roasty aroma with floral hops and some lighter piney notes. The flavor is well balanced, with a roasted malty base, and grassy and resinous hoppy notes. Good stuff. fonefan (49305) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2011
