Bought 22oz bomber at the local beer store

beautiful head that lasted for the entire beer

Aroma coffe pine and roasted malts

flavor spectacular tremendous bitterness balanced perfectly with the roasted malts hints of citrus, chocalate and coffee

mouth feel very light flavor stays with you for a long time

goes down easy

Pours: black/brown with a thick tan head

Aroma: pine, coffee

Taste: very strong and a small bit of bitterness

Mouthfeel: full-bodied, strong and a tad bit bitter but still smooth

Drinkability: this a super dark IPA and in a way reminds me of the Old Gaurdian but not such a strong Alcohol taste as the OG.
Going back to buy the store out.

Serving type: 22oz bottle

Ruler of all Black IPAs!!!

Sorry, I've had many and there is just no comparison. There are some great ones out there like the Wookie Jack and Mountain Standard, but they Tremble before the presence of their Blue Demon Labeled Master!!! LOL sorry, I'm just having too much fun here.

Its the Hoppiest of all the Black IPAs I've had and the Black Malt sweetness brings it all home to the most unique flavored Black IPA I've had. it might best too sweet for some Hopheads, but its so hoppy it just doesn't matter. This is what a Black IPA should be. The only Competition is has is something Lagunitas did and I can'remember what its called. Bring on the 5s!!!
