Tap at Vintage. A touch more mellow and restrained than previous Black IPAs at Vintage. Nails the style. Classic oily black malt. Steady beige head. Classic, well done. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap at Vintage Brewery. Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a creamy tan head that sticks around forever. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, chocolate and mild citrus. Taste is nice with pine, citrus, chocolate, coffee and a bit of warming on the bitter finish. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at Vintage 10/26, first of all, I didn’t even realize the play on words until I ordered this one, well done. Pours black with a light brown head and a little bit of lacing, the aroma has more sweetness than anything with some of the hops coming through, but more chocolate, the flavor was also sweeter than I was expecting without the hops really showing through, not terrible I guess. madvike (3292) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is sweet with sharp pine hops and dry ashy malt. Taste is dry, ashy, charcoal roast, very little hoppiness, with a little herbal note. Body is smooth and gently carbonated.
