A: Poured from the growler ($11.99 at Westmere Beverage) into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is black with a small (half-finger) light-brown head. Leaves decent lacing.
S: Nice - roasty and hoppy at the same time, with the roastiness predominating over an earthy hoppiness.
T: Coffee beans, coffee, roasted barley malt and chocolate lay a nice black ale malty foundation. Hops are of the earthy bitter type, somewhat minerally. Char bitterness meets the hoppy bitterness (and a touch of dark chocolate) at the end of the sip, but a bit of chocolate malt lingers in the aftertaste. Nice balance here.
M: A little bit thin in heft; call it the lighter side of medium in weight. Carbonation is modest, leaving a slightly creamy feel.
O: My first Bronx beer, and I'm giving this the opposite of a Bronx Cheer. This is very close to how I want my perfect American Black Ale to be: roasty, chocolatey and bitter. Had the hops been a little more "juicy" or piney, this might just be my favorite ABA. Solid stuff.

on tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY
Pours near black under a dark tan head that leaves rings of heavier lacing.
On the nose I get dark malts and chocolate.
Tasty and fresh tasting brew. More dark chocoate and dark malts. With hops drying out the finish.
Glad to try this full flavor and chocolatalicious black PA.

Had on tap at the Buddha beer bar- pours a dark black color, with two fingers of mocha colored head, good retention and nice even lacing.
Smell is mild and mostly of light citrusy hops and chocolate malt.
Taste is more roasted and chocolate malts than hops by far. Somewhat disappointing and more like a rich porter than a black ale.
Mouthfeel is nice- medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Won't get this one again, even though it's a decent beer. Not what I was thinking (too chocolatey and rich without enough hop presence) and definitely not as good as the rye.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.
Poured a deep black hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was very good retention and lacing.
The smell featured an herbal hop atop a full roasted malt.
The taste consisted of an upfront assertive toasted barley with a secondary herbal hop spice and a faint citrus.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a tasty Blsck pale ale.

various flavors will come to you. this has a hoppy start with malt following, with some sharpness to it. some bitterness, chocolate/coffee and hop flavors combine for a strong and good tasting brew. High quality stuff.
And in spite of some distinct hoppiness, my wife, who does not like overbearing hops also liked it, so there is some malt sweetness in there too.
If both my wife and I like it, many people will enjoy this one. But this is a strongly flavored ale- not for Coors light drinkers.
Looking forward to finding another product from this company
