8/7...pours dark black with low 1/4 inch of tan bubbly foam. Hearty chocolate pine nose. Deep. Taste is a rich malty blend, heavy fizz, rye notes. Almost oaty. Residual bitter, soft chocolate background.

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.
