Tight light tan lacing that tops this nearly pitch black hued brew. Sweet toasted grainy nose with rye spiciness and hop resin. Smooth with a snap of crispness, roasted grain is most noticeable at first sip then the toasty and spicy rye character. Enough hops to be considered an IPA? Was hoping for more.

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...

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, brown-to-black coloring with brown highlights around the edges and a thin, filmy, light tan surface coat of head. Aromas of roasted notes, mocha, bitter coffee grounds, and earthy notes. Flavors are roast forward, with more of a coffee backbone leading the charge with bitterness and hints of smoke. Deep, dark chocolate notes, both bitter and rich, build as you drink, and there is a large bitter component into the aftertaste, which is also mostly bitter, but also has a healthy dose of roasted notes. Grainy notes jump in here and there towards the end of the palate, with the rich bitterness typical from rye beers. Light, thin body that does well with all the roasted and bitter notes. The finish is bitter and dry, with a roasted linger. Less IPA than it is CDA and/or Rye, but good nonetheless.

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.

Mixed 12-pack found up in Waterbury, VT. Dated 12-08-13 which is within reviewing range for me.

A- Poured to a snifter from the 12oz bottle with a black body. Light tan head builds up to about two fingers with good retention eventually dying down to a frothy, foamy thick ring. Lace rings and drizzle start at the top of the glass and continues nicely to really coat the snifter.

S- Inviting roasted malts and hops going back and forth with one another. Roast malts remind me of standard Stouts with black grains, cocoa and just a bit of burnt coffee grounds. Hops beyond that with citric orange peel, earthy and floral hints.

T- Things seem to tighten up here a bit and there is less of an obvious dichotomy between the roast and hops, blending occurs. However, the malt base is still inviting as in the nose with notes of burnt grains, cocoa powder, dark coffee grounds and a bit of smoke. Hops mingle the grains with grapefruit, orange zest, floral and slight stone fruit notes.

MF- Light to moderately thick body. Texture is creamy and really foams up on the palate with any agitation. Carbonation at a high, taste bud tingling level but plays nicely with the hops and the bitterness that follows on the palate, both roast and hoppy.

I'm pretty happy with the purchase of this mixed 12 for $12. I have tried all of the beers once and this one for a second time. Flavorful with good malt and hop profiles. Seems like Long Trail is picking things up lately and keeping low prices.

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.

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.
