Growler from Decicco's - 6/5/11
Pours a deep black with a three finger tan creamy head. Pretty appealing looking brew. Wouldn't know its a black IPA until you get your nose over it. Heavy lacing lining the glass. The head doesn't quit. Aroma is malt, barley, coffee, perhaps a hint of tobacco with a piney and resinous hop character. Lots of hop bite on the back end but this predominately has a malty attitude while drinking. Mouthfeel is good and lively and works for a bIPA.
Overall this is a good beer. I've had some hoppy, fresh stouts before(something from Troegs, can't recall) and this ABA is in that vein.

22oz bomber: this one pours a dark chocolate brown color. There was about a finger of a tan head on it that didn’t linger long. It has a surprisingly lighter nose. Malts, but not much sweetness at all. Perhaps a bit of chocolate roast and pine. It tastes OK, but I’m not sure why they call it a black IPA. Almost no bitterness to it. There is a good malt body, with some chocolate and roasted notes trying to peak thru but no real sweetness either. It needs a whole lot more hops to be in an IPA category. Let’s just call it a very good strong porter.
