64oz growler poured into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black, theres a small light brown head that fades really quickly. Nose is sweet and malty, it's got some nice juicy fruity hop notes as well.

Mouthfeel is good, carbonation is a bit low but it's held up well in the growler. There is a grainy taste in it that I get in all Black IPAs, but it's well covered by the fruity hop flavors. Earlier batches smelled much more heady & dank but this has a much more subdued note, it's bitter but not over the top. Very well done.

Poured a deep brown hue with a one finger off white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured burnt caramel and piney hops.

The taste consisted of an earthy roasted malt and sweet caramel with waves of piney hops.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty BIPA.

Pours a black-as-midnight color with a brown one-finger head into my snifter.

Aroma is full of floral hops and as it warms up, the aroma shows more.

Taste is full of grassy hops with a good bite. Nothing overpowering. Walks the line between hoppy stout and ipa very well.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering grassy hops and slightly roasted malt.

Very drinkable. Any more hops and a bigger malt bill and you'd have an imperial stout. Still worth a try.

S-dark roasted malt, pine, hints of chocolate and citrus

T-dark roasted malt, citrus, pine, hint of chocolate, moderate bitter hop finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp

O-this was good but not great, the flavor was decent but not as well-balanced as others I have had

On tap at American Flatbread.

Pours a pitch black color with a super creamy head which sticks nicely to the glass. A lot of hoppy flavors going on in there! Piney and grassy to the smell. Strong bitterness kick on the palate upfront. Finishes with a roasted malt dryness that lingers. Quite an experience for the palate with the bitter/dry feeling. This black IPA is bold, might not be loved by many but I overall liked its stong character.
