Sampled at Michigan Brewers' Guild in Ypsi. Pours black with small off white head. Smells acidic, boozy, piney, roasty. In your face strong beer, but hides the alcohol burn well. Flavor is a big burst of heavy roasted malts and a bitter pine finish, with a good hint of booze coming in and sweetening things up. This was a little muddled and over the top for me. Worth a try, but definitely a sipper.

"Rage," The Imperial Black IPA:

A: Looks thick, especially if we put it in the Black IPA category. However, this is 14.6%, yes you read that correctly 14.6% ABV. It's dark, like really dark. Great finger-lacing, most I've maybe ever seen for this style.

S: You can smell a strong hop profile, much like the ANGER, but there's a sweetness to it...very interesting, but It works okay.

T: Sweet. Its got some hoppy goodness in it as well, much like the ANGER, but it's muted by the sweetness. The ANGER ended pretty dry while this one ends fairly sweet. The roasted malts are definitely more present in this than it's younger brother. This could be a super-dangerous beer, because I don't really feel that it's all that boozy (so beware!). I do feel like the hop profile is off in this one. Again, I'm more of a hop-head, especially in my IPAs, then a roasted malt/sweetness guy. It disappoints in this area for me, but may not for others.

M: Thick, for an IPA, but it is 14.6%, so yeah... The flavors just stick on your tongue like molasses. It's sticky like a medium stout would be. The flavor stays with you, so be prepared.

O - I'm really confused by this beer, even though I think it compares more with the Stone Black IPA than the Anger does. It's really good, but I'm not sure what category it fits in. I think Greenbush may have created a beer that belongs in a limited category...If you like Black IPAs, it's a must try. Greenbush is really surprising me.

From Blind Bif 8. Review compiled from notes. Drank side by side with Short's Goodnight Bodacious on July 6th, 2013.

Appearance- Pours a dark black with a deep tan-colored head. Decent retention and good lacing.

Aroma- Has a ton of bitterness. Roasted malt, coffee, and hops.

Taste- This is a beast. Very intense flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate, hops, with a light sweetness (bourbon?).

Mouthfeel- Decent amount of carbonation, complements the beer nicely.Evident alcohol, but it's a nice warming, not over the top.

Rage from Greenbush Brewing (a 14.6% Black Ale). Pretty straight forward: Hoppy (very) Imperial Black ale with coffee. Pretty much pegged that.
