3.28/5  rDev -15.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Very black, good head, but with light lacing

S - roasty with some herbal hops

T - nice herbal hops that don't linger, chocolate, roasty and smoky, light coffee

M - medium body with light hops and good carbonation, maybe a tad thin to me for style

O - A good beer but over priced... Good to try, but about it when it comes to black ipas... There are so many much better for the money out there.

3.45/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Very dark, nearly black in color with a thick head initially, which tapers into a consistent half-inch head.

S - Smells like an IPA, rich in hops, but followed additionally by malts and a hint of chocolate.

T - Follows the scent, mostly. Moderate bitterness, roasted malts, and light chocolate. Tastes like it should for the most part -- think a combination between porter and IPA, and that's pretty much what you get.

M - Sticky, moderate thickness mouth feel with moderate carbonation.

O - A unique beer experience, and for that alone I consider it worth trying. An enjoyable beer overall. I'd like to see them make this a mainstay for them, instead of a limited release.

64 IBU

Dark, nearly black color topped with a nice, sticky tan head. Spotty lace. Roasted malt, coffee, and fruity hops in the aroma with a touch of yeast. Sweet roast, resin, juicy citrus, light esters, and a sturdy bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel with prickly carbonation.

Solid...not terribly hoppy, but tasty enough to have a couple.

On-tap at The Bier Garden, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark malts and pine resin hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of dark malts along with notes of pine resin hops and roasted malts. It has a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This Black IPA is quite easy to drink but still has a good amount of flavors.

Pours into a standard pint glass a deep chocolate brown with a half finger pillow-like light beige head atop,a nice layer of froth is left after it settles.Cocoa,caramel,and piney hops in the nose but the hops are on the lighter side.Molasses,roast, and bitter chocolate flavors hit up front with earthy and piney hops in the finish,the molasses flavor stands out up against the hops.To me it's a big earthy, hoppy porter but that's not a bad thing.Not bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle poured nto a Goose Island piny.

Appearance: Pretty much black. Half finger of tan head. Pretty nice retention and some mild lacing.

Aroma: Dark roast coffee malts. Citrusy and herbal hops.

Taste: Dark roasty coffee malts play with a nice subtle citrus flavor with a higher than expected bitterness at 64 IBU's. Getting a decent bitter chocolate lingering on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth almost creamy medium body. Moderate carbonation. Excellent bitterness and a clean roasty finish.
