Midnight Hoppyness....I was surprised when I poured this from a bomber into a pint glass, and it came out black....hence the name. Duh.

Good looking beer. Dark black with a large muddy head.

Smells of sweet chocolate, with a crispness that hints of hops. That would be the only clue so far that this isn't a stout.

Tastes pretty strongly of alcohol, starts somewhat sweet, and finishes bitter. Kind of rough.

Pretty strongly carbonated..

Overall, this tastes a little unfinished. Like it should be aged, or tweaked a bit in the brewing process. A bit rough for me.

Walked into a local liquor store and randomly found a bottle of this stuff! Had never seen/heard of this specific beer but I had recently enjoyed Knee Deeps Belgo, Simtra, and Hoptologist. I am new to Black IPA's but I did enjoy this beer. Like the beers name, the beer poured a black "midnight" color and had a very distinctive IPA taste. I reside in California and I am currently experincing an "Indian Summer". This beer fit perfectly with the in between summer/fall weather. Not to heavy and not to crisp. Not going to lie, I am excited to switch over to porters and stouts. The only other Black IPA I have tried was Bear Republic's Racer X. Out of those two options, I would choose Knee Deeps over Bear Republic's. This was a great tasting beer with a cool name and label!
