Had this on tap last week at Beer Authority in New York. This was the first time that I sampled anything from the Bronx Brewery and as a Black Ale, this was quite good with just a bit of a hop kick in the back. The mouthfeel was just a tad heavier than I expected and this almost had the smell and taste of a Porter. Given that I haven't had many examples this style, that's probably more common than not but regardless of the stylistic boundaries that this straddled, it was a good brew that was nice to sip before heading over to the Garden to watch some NCAA basketball.

This poured quite dark and should have been called a Black Ale, even with the hop presence in it. Not a memorable aroma to it but there was a strong, roasted element to it along with some coffee. This felt quite dry once I gave it a taste, along the lines of an Irish Dry Stout. Somewhat bitter, the dark notes faded nicely into the metallic hops that were in the back. Not cloying, creamy, or boozy, this beer had just enough body and carbonation to keep me interested in it, though it called for a bit of water afterwards to wash everything down.

The alcohol was present but subtle and the hop bitterness wasn't that long-lasting either. While not as strong as a Black IPA, this had enough characteristics of one to be classified as such. A nice offering from the Bronx Brewery that wouldn't offend anyone or blow them away at the same time. Some more hop bitterness would have made this true to stylistic form and more memorable but as it was, I enjoyed it sip after mellow sip.

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
