Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by November 2012.
Appearance: extremely dark body, nearly completely black, which lets a few ruby highlights through when held up to the light. Head pours a thick finger of frothy dark tan foam. An attractive beer.
Smell: sweet malty aroma with a nice fruity character and a hint of chocolate. It smells almost like a Belgian strong dark ale, but with the addition of tons of citrusy and slightly piney hops. What an interesting concoction!
Taste: strong hop flavor right off the bat, slowly moving into the sweeter, maltier body. This beer has a very interesting strong ale character to it; it definitely takes advantage of this ill-defined style category. I like it.
Mouthfeel: medium-thick body with a good level of carbonation and a nice, silky smooth creaminess. Dig it.
Overall: this is an interesting beer; I'm glad I picked this up. I don't know if it's an everyday drinker, but it's definitely worth trying.

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.
