look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 30, 2014.

The pour is so nice and black with a modest beige head that never goes away completely but leaves plenty of lacing as is dissolves to a ring.

The nose is rye, grain, molasses, caramel sweetness, and earthy hops. That grain does have a distinctiveness compared to the other typical aromas.

Medium body mainly but generally ion the smooth side.

The taste does bring out that rye grain character more than anything else but it is interspersed with sweet molasses or perhaps dark malts. The bitterness is a bit more than mild and it lingers dryly at the end. They did a n ice job with it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a nice dark brown head that remained at 1/4". Aroma is all roasty brown grains with some rye spice and just a hint of hops. Taste's just like it smells, lots of enjoyable roasted grains with some rye spice but lacks any real hop character. I'd describe this more as a rye brown ale than a BIPA. Enjoyable beer due to the grain selection but not what I thought I was going to get in the hop department. Worth trying if you appreciate a dark beer that has no dark grain astringency.

Pours a brown black color with a lighter beige head. Ruby highlights when held to a light.

Lots of porter like aroma greet you upon opening. A big roasted malt aroma and chocolates greet you first. The hop nose is very lean here and almost absent. Rye spices mingle well with the roasted malts making for a good smelling beer.

The taste has a lot of roasted malts. It seems to be the dominate taste. Hops and spicy rye malts are very subtle in the taste.

Over the palate the beer has an ashen feel and is quite bitter and dry.

Overall this is a good beer but more porter like then IPA. I say that because I tasted and smelled little in way of hops and more maltiness that comes with porters. Rye spices were lean, and looking back I think it was spot on.
Either way this was still a very good beer that 'd gladly drink more of.

A birthday gift from duffextracold

Root beer black brown with a stalwart pocked head. Plenty sticky. At first whiff I get brownie batter and mint sprig aroma in the bottle. Once the head settles down dried orange zest and a very distinctive kitchen spice character that I can’t place wafts up. Oregano? Black pepper? Taste black bread and black pepper with a mild citrus in back. This would be a good food beer.

I usually don’t like black IPAs because dark malt and citrus hops don’t jive for me. I love that Long Trail came up with a unique version of the style by using the pepper qualities of some hops.

12 ounce bottle from the Farm House Box

Pours pretty much black w/ a large and frothy medium mocha head. head lasts nicely and leaves nice ringed low sheeting and scattered lacing.

Full throttle nose of herbal hops and dark malts n some rye

Palate follows the nose, respectably fueled by dark malts, hint of rye and moderate, again, herbal hops.

Ehhhh, sort of middle of the road, as most Long Trail beers seem to me...
