On draught at the brewery, served in a snifter. A doubled-up up version of their regular 'Anger' Black IPA.

Black in body, dark red around the edges. Tan, almost brown head. Good lacing and retention. Big tropical and pine notes initially, and some dank/weed as it warms. A bit stinky intially (body odor?), but this ultimately manifested into the aforementioned weed smell. Substantial roast and dark chocolate as well intermingled with the pungent fop notes. Juicy tropical and pine notes on the palate again, herbal bitterness and a brown sugar/vanilla-like sweetness. Big sweet roasty body as well. Roasty long into the finish.Good full body and medium low carbonation. Alcohol is not at all evident which is awesome for it's size. Well done overall, while it's not a perfect hop profile by any stretch, it's still quite good.

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.

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.
