Thanks a plenty to GrassrootsVT for this mighty tasty brew brought over from DK.

Pours a nice dark soft flow into my Mikkeller glass. The head froths up into a solid 3 finger head that settles into a solid toffee colored cap with high thick lacing. Color is deep black with light translucence coming through on the edges.

This bottling is several months old but is still piney, citrusy, bold and nice. Smells fresh and dank even thought it's not the freshest of beers. I would have loved to try this right off the tap. Really nice pine, citrus, resiny quality to the beer. It smells delicious and invites an excessive drink.

The beer overall is clean, fresh, dank and wonderful. Starts clean and piney with light citrus character. Middle is slightly bolder with chocolate notes and some roasted malt. But this beer is no doubt an IPA with strong qualities of hop and herbal notes. Finishes dry and clean with subtle roasted flavors that back up what is otherwise an impressive IPA.

Mouthfeel is clean, soft and pleasant. Carbonation is soft but ever present producing an effervescent body with soft sides and a fluid body. Really nice.

Yeah, I could drink A LOT of this beer. Thanks to Shaun Hill for this wonderful collaboration brew!

Well this label definately looks appealing and when the brew is poured it looks as good as the label looks it is dark black cola hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a two finger head that slowly recedes to a layer of smoggy froth across the top with an outer rim of lacing,it smells as good as it looks to with aromas of strong piney hops,mandarin,grapefruit and a tinge of liquorice,it has a nice medium bodied mouthfeel which is lively carbonated and has tastes of piney hops first up followed by some citrus zest,a tinge of toffee,black liquorice and finishes with a passionfruit,piney hop bitterness and to be quite honest i could easily drink more than one of these and will buy again without doubt.

Beer pours out off-black, glints of cola brown in the light, with a cocoa head that sits atop the liquid in a solidified mass. Lacing clings to the side with each sip.

Aroma is predominently piney hops, with hints of citrus fruits that delve into coffee and dark chocolate.

The first sip destroys your palette with utter confusion and insanity. As it settles, there are strong flavours of fresh coffee and sweet chocolate that give way to a piney, underlying citrus finish. It is balanced in a way that the flavours are layered upon one another, and compliment each other.

A sensational brew, that has really opened up my eyes in bringing together two completely different flavour profiles and making them work so well together.

750ml bottle poured into a Jester King/Cantillon Zwanze Day tulip.

A~ pitch black with a big soapy like tan head. along with a lot of lacing.

S~ citrusy hops and dank grass up front. faint roasty malts in the background along with a bit of fresh coffee and dark chocolate.

T~ extremely citrusy from the hops. i'm guessing citra, simcoe, and nelson. nelson seems to add some amazing vomit like flavor haha a lot like a dark Enjoy By. (if there is nelson that is haha) the taste then proceeds to follow the nose with a ton of roasty malts, coffee, and dark bitter chocolate.

M~ nice silky smooth feel. with less hops this is what the original version of Daybreak should have been in my opinion. nice carbonation and refreshing as well.

O~ i'm actually very impressed by this colab. yesss.... it IS a Grassroots colab. haha super well balanced and honestly might be one of my favorite black IPA's. once again i'm biased cause this is one of my favorite styles. hence the high rating =]

beautiful black with super nice tan topper- nice and firm!
lots of hops on the smell, a little bit of the band aid smell... but kind of sweet. some malt...
taste is band aid also, a little sweet; bitter as it goes down. each successive swallow yields a little more serious malt taste yet a little bit more bitterness. almost rye-like. and yet, a little chocolate-y. overall, a very decent brew. this brewery makes a lot of different brews and imports quite a few of them to California....

from notes...
Thanks to hopdog for sharing this beer received from grassrootsVT, who was partially responsible for the beer.
Appears a hazy dark mahogany with a small tan head that never really fades away. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of cocoa, caramel, raisins, grapes, toasted nuts, bitter chocolate, and cream.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with mildly tart cherries, and gooseberries found in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, creamy, biter, and lip smacking.

Pours a sexy brownish-black with a huge brown head into my glass. Black Nitro...hell yeah!

Lots of different hop notes in the nose, especially of citrus and pine/cut grass. The malt stays in the background for this example.

Surprisingly balanced upfront with the mix of various hops. Beats out some other examples I've had recently.

You will love the mouthfeel. The hops drop off of your mouth, warming the throat. The finish? Think of a hazelnut spread on toasted bread. Very "nutty".

Highly recommended for this style.

Appearnce- Pitch Black. Big mocha head. lots of lacing.

Smell- Coffee, chocolate, pine, alcohol. Stouty.

Taste- Citrus hops, pine, coffee, chocolate, licorice. No booze.

Mouthfeel- Medium, lingering bitterness, no heat.

Overall- Very nicely done black IPA. Not a hoppy stout, but an actually black IPA.
