Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: OldIronLungs on 04-15-2011

Adam Romanow is our third brewer apprentice. His release is an exploration into a newer beer style, the Black IPA. Black as night, bitter, with a full flavored Cascade hop profile and smooth finish.

Named after Nyx, the mythological Greek goddess of night, who stood at the beginning of creation. As a beginning, we agree Adam is on to something. As he moves on, we raise a toast and hope you enjoy his beer as much as we do.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

black as night with a towering three inches of chocolate colored foam on the top of the glass. Settling slowly it left behind tons of brown lace up and down the glass. Aroma is piney hops and rich roasted malts. Touches of peat and campfire like tones coming through. Nice feel, medium carbonation and heavy enough to keep me intrested, but not overally full. Nice opening bite of piney hops come across quite nicely with a delicate dryness and touches of light hops. Quickly the roasted malts take over and offer lots of smokey and rich malty notes. Light chocolate starts to come through in the dry finish and leaves the palate searching as to which flavor dominated the most but the last gasp goes to a deep, smokey malt. (724 characters)

Wow, pours a super dark thick rich RIS looking beer with a dark 1 finger fluffy and thick head that fades slowly with lacing, the beer is pitch black, and thick with legs, RIS style. Damn, not what I was expecting for an American Black ALe (Cascadian Dark).

Nose starts out again more like a RIS, starting with roasty dark malts, bit of dark chocolate, hint of cocoa, touch of minerality like almost soy sauce, then some earthy and slightly spicy hops, bit of coffee and caramel, lots of dark malts.

Taste starts with dark malts again, not quite as heavy as I was expecting but heavier than it should be for an American Dark Ale, still closer to an Imperial Stout. Dark roasty malts, a bit of coffee, some dark chocolate, hint of cocoa, light minerality and soy sauce, then again with earthy hops, spicy chewy hops, bit creamy and touch of sweetness. Finishes with a long bitterness, a chewy spicy smashed hop pellet taste like I just chewed on a spicy hop pellet while brewing, then some sticky sweet malts, and bit of roast and minerality, and touch of burnt coffee grinds. A bit of the house yeast last on the finish.

Mouth is fairly heavy and rich, decent carbonation.

Overall a really nice rich heavy beer, not quite what I was expecting for an American Black ALe, but more like Imperial Stout with tons of earthy spicy chewy hops, a bit of soy sauce and minerality, but I bet that will die with age, I really need to buy one and age it to see what happens. (1,466 characters)

On-tap 12/1/2014 at British Beer Company in Walpole, MA, served in a becker pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep black color, with a short light brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and touches of citrus and hops.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of chocolate, coffee and citrus sweetness that are quickly followed by a strong hops bitterness and a hearty roasted malt character. An intense dryness throws the balance off somewhat. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is very dry and sticky, possibly the driest beer I’ve ever had.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, there are definitely better options within the style. (835 characters)

Pours the color of motor oil. Light does not shine through the glass. Thick beige head. Great coating of lace after each sip.

Strong cocoa and dark chocolate aroma.

This is very similar to stout taste wise. Burnt toast marks the predominant flavor. Bitter beginning, middle and end--all from the black patent malt. Richer body than the typical stout. There's a bit of alcohol oiliness on the tongue. The aftertaste is of powdered, unsweetened cocoa. (452 characters)

I had this at the open house and today decided to open one of the bottles I bought then.
Pours a solid black color with a fluffy khaki head that slowly recedes to a ring on top. Smells of roast and hints of chocolate mixed with pine and citrus and a slight bit phenols. Taste is roasty with dark chocolate and hint of molasses. Bitter piney hop resin cuts through the roast very nicely. The finish leaves a long lingering hop and roasted grain thickly on my palette. Medium to thick body, moderate level of carbonation, creamy resinous mouthfeel. I seemed to notice the roasted grains a lot more from this bottle than I remember from the open house. Its possible a little age brought the roast out a little more. This beer blurs that line between IPA and stout in fact if you gave me this and told me it was a hoppy stout I wouldn't have argued with you. Tasty brew no matter what you call it. (893 characters)

Poured from a bomber that we picked up at the brewery. Served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a very dark chestnut brown coloring that is almost black. Thin, filmy, light brown colored head that starts around an inch, but quickly settles into a filmy coating on the surface. Aromas of smoke and rich malt balance well, with a coffee and cocoa nib throughout. Flavors are rich and roasted, with a solid smoke highlight and a subtle, resiny, hopped backbone that intertwines throughout. Roasted coffee and cocoa nib are present once again on the palate. Very tasty. The aftertaste is more of the smoke and roast, with a touch of coffee. The finish is slightly dry and bitter, with a linger of smoke. Delicious!! (708 characters)

Pours a one finger brown head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights, yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Light pine hop nose. Flavor is roasted coffee and pine hops. Unusual black ale, the 103 IBUs are balanced by the malts. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Bottled Apr 2011, batch 1. $7.99 for a 22oz bottle, from Concord Cooperative Concord, NH. (405 characters)

22oz bottle purchased at Formaggio Kitchen, Cambridge, MA. Batch One, Bottled April 2011, Bottle Count 1065.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" dark dark brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head dwindles over time, with leggy, sticky lacing. Aroma is rich deep dark malts. Taste starts sweet as well, anise and blackstrap coupled with some hops bitterness in the middle, closes with a peek of citrus and some more bitter, which lingers on the palate. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is okay as well. A little too rough around the edges for me, but still pretty good overall. (618 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From batch one bottled in April 2011. Sampled on July 16, 2011. The pour is as dark as one of the Polar Caves from Rumney, New Hampshire with about a quarter inch to half inch, silky, fluffy brown head which lingers. There are lots of sensations to enjoy on the nose with an up front character of baker's chocolate followed by a yeasty, malty middle range, and earthy piney hops. The body seems light at first on first sip but almost gets heavier as I swallow it. The chocolate is considerably more subtle in the flavor. What you lose in the chocolate esthers you gain with a dark cherry-like zing and a pleasantly bitter taste with a long hoppy finish to help make this a memorable experience. Very nice. (705 characters)

Picked up at Julio's after passing on it twice. Really, really glad I tried this offering from White Birch.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a deep, rich oily black pour with a thick, super dark mocha head that leaves big, clumpy side lacing as ir receeds to a nice mocha cloud. Looks so much like a stout or porter.

S - Really really good roasted malt/chocolate notes with some subtle pine notes thanks to the hops.

T - Like the nose with great roasted malt and BIG chocolate notes upfront followed by a nice hop bitterness. Drinks like very bitter chocolate, delicious.

M - Low carbonation makes this tingle just enough to prevent it from being velvety smooth.

O - A really good black IPA here. Really solid appearance, aroma, flavour, etc. Just a very good take on the style. Just with the mouthfeel was a little better. Would definately buy this again. (859 characters)

L: Pours bright black crowned by a 2” tan foam cap that dissipates to a thick film. S: Nose – faint chocolate, slight roast T: The beer has a delightful graininess that brings out the chocolate and provides a backbone. No harsh roast or burnt flavors. F: It has average carbonation but it is fine and soft. The body is full but not as full as a porter or a stout. There is a little warming on the end. O: A big, flavorful black ale (435 characters)

This beer is as thick and dark as an Imperial Stout, rich and heavy-looking. It's completely solid, letting no light in. The rich medium-brown head is creamy and dense, sitting nearly two full fingers tall and settling with some reluctance. As the beer is emptied from the glass, creamy sheeting is left in its wake.
This aroma has the goods, and I wish it was a little stronger but it's fantastic besides that. There's roast and pine, co-mingling in an excellent way. There's very little char but just a touch, with a peaty note to it. Some citrus zest sneaks out some bitterness, too.
The flavors mingle as nicely in the flavor, with some more dryness on the tongue in an herbal leaf note with a touch of chalkiness. Otherwise, the pine brings a resinous note, but the dryness of the bitterness is cut by the malts and a little citrus juice. The end is woody and brings together the overlying roastiness with the leaf and pine.
The body is on the fuller side of medium. Carbonation is light but there's a nice bite of crispness. The mouthfeel is dry but clean, no harsh residuals on the end as the roast eases away from being too charred. There's a brightness that evens out the drier tones. (1,193 characters)

Bottle dated April 2011. Batch one. Whoops!

A: Black pour with a big dense dark brown head. Looks a lot heavier than just 7%. Fades slowly, leaving pretty excellent lacework behind. Excellent head retention to boot.

S: Creamy roasted malt, heavy on the chocolate and the anise. I think the hops are pretty much dead at this point but there is a very light grapefruit and pine aroma.

T: Decent resin and a bit of pine. Creamy with some bitter chocolate and char. A bit of bitterness from the hops shows up in the middle, surprising. Lots of anise and resin in the finish and lingering for a long time in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, a bit drying in the aftertaste.

O: Heh, not a bad Black IPA after a year and a half. Pine is pretty subdued but resin is still decent. It was quite drinkable and tasty. Will have to find a fresh bottle of this someday. (862 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bottle into two pint glasses. Special thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist! Extra special thanks to jayli for this from our recent trade!

Bottled: April 2011
Batch: One
Bottle Count: 1065
ABV: Alc. 7.0% by Vol.

A: Pours pure black with an extremely luxurious and creamy 2 1/2 fingers of mocha colored foam. Head retention was excellent with full on sheets and ropes clinging to the glass.

S: Pine, chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of espresso. Would've scored .5 higher but it was a touch less vibrant than the taste...

T: See above but more intense. Killer balance between the pine, chocolate, and roast.

M: A bit sweet with very intense blasts of spicy pine hops and dry roast. Huge long finish that seems to never end. Awesome!

O: This is a fantastic example of the style. I'd love more of this! (827 characters)

Thanks to a very generous BA!

Pours a dark, molasses-y looking black ... not an RIS consistency, but just a straight up black liquid. Big light tan head. Interesting.

Smells like a mixture of roasted cocoa, roasted roast, some pine, a bit of earthy dankness, and roasted choco-coffee. Nice.

Taste is quite well put together, considering that I find this to be a fairly disparate flavor/aroma profile. It reminds me of some of the overhopped stouts out there ... think Yeti ... but it's obviously a lighter, more "sessionable," beer. The hops predominate more than I thought, with bittering pine being the most noticeable. But, the dark chocolate and bittering earth roast rounds it out quite well.

Mouthfeel is lighter and more refreshing than the appearance would leave one to believe.

White Birch is nailing things down. (828 characters)

22oz bottle (Batch 1 - April 2011) poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours from the bottle very thick...appears more to be an imperial stout on the pour than a black ale. Thick, syrupy/oily with a short finger of cappuccino foam with pretty good staying power. Light foamy lacing left on the glass.

S - Smells somewhat stouty also. Very, very roasty, black coffee, chocolate syrup, citrusy hops. Definitely has a strong hop presence appropriate to the style.

T - Sugary sweet, extremely bitter in a roasted, burnt toast way. Serious black coffee notes with dark mocha/chocolately flavors too. Hops are fruity and citrusy. A decent amount of grainy astringency.

M - Thicker than medium bodied...astringent super dark roastiness. A bit over the top on the burnt character. This is sharp and acrid and more than a little bit smokey.

O - Given the newness of this style, I suppose it still has some room for interpretation and development of defining characteristics of the best examples of the style. I've had a number of these black ales and this one stands out as a bit unique - the body is much fuller, the roast is over the top and really leaves a lasting impression. I think the aroma is this beer's high point. Flavor is good, but I'd prefer a bit less of a charcoal aspect to this...toned down just a notch, this would really be quite tasty. (1,347 characters)

Got the bomber on 10/3/13 at Westmere Beverage. Cost $8.49. Says it was bottled "Fall 2013" and since we're only a few days into Fall, I'm guessing this is pretty fresh.

A: Poured from the bomber into a pint glass. A fairly aggressive pour (it looked flat and thick on the pour so I ramped it up a bit) still yields only a small tannish head. A little lace is left behind. It looks more like a RIS than an American Black Ale.

S: Molasses, licorice and some roasty malt.

T: I like. Nice combination of malt and hops. Roasty malt and a lighter heft makes it quite Porter-like, but the molasses and licorice from the nose also make an appearance on the tongue, and make it RIS-like. Roasted coffee is big too, plus a bit of cocoa powder. Finishes with a piney and roasty bitterness, with roastiness prevailing on the aftertaste. The more I drink this, the more I like it.

M: Light in heft like a porter, but slightly slick - an odd combination, yeah, but here we are. Carbonation is quite modest, accounting for that slick feel, I suspect.

O: Bumping this up to 4.5. This beer resides in that space where a hoppy American Porter meets an American Black Ale by way of a Russian Imperial Stout. I like all of those styles, and I'm digging this beer. (1,249 characters)

Very classic black ale. Would prefer something softer and hoppier or maybe not as bitter as aftertaste is fairly sharp w a touch of alcohol bite. Not bad though and reasonable at $8 for a 22. Just not unique in any way. (220 characters)

Bottled April 2011
Batch One
Poured in to a pint glass.

A: This beer pours a nice, somewhat thick, opaque black with a two finger of thick, creamy, foamy mocha colored head. Head recedes at a moderate pace and leaves nice sticky sheets of lacing.

S: Nose is a fantastic roastiness, a bit of piney and earthy hop notes.

T: Taste is fantastic! Taste starts with a nice chocolate, cocoa nib flavoring. Hearty roast malts come through and really fill out the middle. The piney, earthy hop bitterness take over and really hang on the palate in the finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, nice and creamy at first with a dry finish.

O: Goes down easily, extremely tasty, somewhat filling, nice kick, very good representation of style. This is a fantastic beer! Lots of flavor, nice balance of hop and malt. I could sit and enjoy several pints of this beer! I should have picked up more bottles! (898 characters)

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 6/15/11

Thanks to MbpBugeye for sharing.

Bottled April 2011, Batch #1

Pours a slow, inky dark brown. Medium-dark brown foam rises quickly to nearly two fingers. Thin retention but a decent bit of lace.

Smells dark and roasty; a touch of the tangy roast, too. Some semi-sweet chocolate notes. Quite piney - dry pine resin, pine needles and sappy pine tree forests. Earthy undertones. Stray citric spots and coffee beans.

The flavor profile is strewn across the place. Starts off hoppy, mostly piney and bitter. The bitterness lingers throughout. Lots of thick, roasted malts. Bitter chocolate. Burnt, ashy flavors are compounded on the finish. Some folks might not like the potent ashy character, but I am fond of such things. Bitter coffee finish.

Full body with a smooth, almost silky feel. Rather viscous for the style. The feel is offset by frisky carbonation.

Nyx is very much on the stout side of this pseudo-style. It has the bitter/burnt/ash combo that I dig. (1,014 characters)

It’s nice to have connections. This beer was crafted by an apprentice brewer at White Birch who happens to be a regular trading partner of whiterascal. She was kind enough to pop this bottle at a tasting of Arizona friends. Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

Dark chocolate brown and completely opaque. A one-finger cocoa-colored head fizzes away at a moderate pace, leaving behind a silky top layer and nice speckled lace.

Brilliantly balanced nose. Cocoa, crumbled dark chocolate and a hint of toast meets a fruity, citrus hop aroma.

The flavor expands on what the nose began: baker's chocolate, cocoa, toast. Citrus hops are the bigger part of the equation here, imparting pine and grapefruit. Finishes with impressive astringency and bitterness.

The medium-light body is nice and not too heavy. Very light, massaging carbonation allows the body to hold together well as it moves about. Tongue-numbing booze.

Balance leans toward the hops; good bitterness; just enough roast. This is how a black IPA should taste. Can’t wait to see what else this apprentice brewer has in store. (1,099 characters)

This beer pours like thick sludge, its great. It has a really thick, glopy head, that retains like crazy and laces all over the glass in billows of puffiness. This beer is an attractive beer and the really dark head is just wonderfully enticing. The nose is malty, somewhat subdued, a bit like a cacao shake, lots of dark malts. The nose is good.

This has many similar characteristics to an imperial stout, minus the oakiness. There is a very charred, biting, hoppiness to the beer, there is a slight booziness, and a rather acerbic caramel strain in the taste. There are plenty of dark roasted, slightly charred malts in the beer, it is plenty creamy, medium to full bodied. The beer is slightly biting and the leafy somewhat coarse hops linger a bit longer into the finish than is warranted. This beer makes a statement and is not withering violet. It's good, creamy, thick, biting, very imperial-stout like, slightly boozy, and full palated. This is worth seeking out. (973 characters)

Batch 1 - Bottled April 2011 - 1065 bottles in this batch. 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a solid black with a half finger dark brown head. Head dissipates to a nice brown foam cap that leaves excellent lacing on the glass. This beer pours and looks like a stout. Not a big imperial stout but maybe a lower ABV oatmeal or American stout. Pretty impressive as I find most beers of the style have the look but pour a bit thinner.

Nice balance between the hops and malt in the nose. Earthy and piny hop aromas hit first and are balanced nicely but some roasted malt. There is a hint of malt sweetness and perhaps a touch of citrus but the earthy, piny hops and roasted malt are what lead the way in what seems like equal parts.

The taste follows along closely with the nose although it's a good bit stronger. The same earthy and piny hop characters hit first and are again balanced nicely with the roasted malt. The citrus that may have been in the nose is definitely here as is a slightly sweeter malt character, almost chocolate-like but not quite. There is a hint of some coffee before a hugely bitter finish that lingers until the next sip.

Pretty big mouthfeel. Not huge but somewhere on the higher end of medium. Coupled with a medium carbonation it gives the beer a creamy texture that dries out considerably with the lingering, sticky bitter finish.

Overall this is a great beer. Really well done take on the style. Great balance between the hops and the dark malt characters. The fact that the label says 7% ABV is shocking. I'd like to say that this is a one and done because of the ABV and bigger mouthfeel for the style but after drinking all 22oz in a little over an hour I definitely feel like I'd like a little bit more. (1,751 characters)

Thanks Boatshoes! Split with Ryan011235.

Bottled April 2011, Batch one, 1065 bottles, 7.0% abv, poured into an E&J Cask and Cream glass.

Appearance
Wow, this stuff pours out like a porter or American stout. Its very thick, especially for the style. There is a tall, dense and dark colored head with great staying power but only broken lace. The beer is deep, dark and thick looking.

Aroma
Lots of roasted malts give off the typical dark coffee, black chocolate, ash and char. Furthermore, there is a chocolate chip cookie aroma that is quite nice. There is a stiff pine aroma. I wonder what this beer was like a month and a half ago. The hops combine with the roastiness to create a lot of spiciness, especially when cold. The hops are bursting from this beer like they should, but this beer could be fresher also.

Taste
This is pretty good, but I think there is a little bit of hop fade. Its still very bitter, but the sweet citrus flashes and pine resinousness are toned back, giving way to bitterness by blackened malts.

Mouthfeel
The thick body was not a surprise after seeing the weight of this beer on the pour. It has a long, ashy dry finish with low, soft carbonation.

Overall
I like this one. Its very bitter at times, but my palate quickly adjusted and the beer became quite enjoyable. But there is little in the way of balance. Its all bitter roasted malts and bitter piney hops. Totally a good offering from White Birch though. (1,451 characters)

A - black and syrupy looking with a fine bubbled head leaving plenty of lacing.
S - chocolate and dark smoky malts and piercing hops that light up your nose.
T - hard hitting hops right up front with a big malty sweet middle and a lingering hoppy bite in the finish. Plenty of dark roasted malts give it a smoky flavor.
M - I would like a little more carbonation to break the thickness and resin coating left behind but the fullness is nice.
A nice hoppy dark offering of pleasing drinkability. (494 characters)
