4.05/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours black, with a couple fingers of rich looking mocha head. This stays robust and frothy looking in the glass with a smooth ½ finger that leaves thick sticky lacing back. The aroma smells fresh, floral, citric and a touch spicy in the nose, while notes of cocoa and smoky roast come in off the edges. Those hops pretty much get the biggest push here though.

The taste is a rich mix of roasted coffee, sticky chocolate and green citrus flavors. A spicy and leafy bitterness flows throughout. The profile here is pretty even between malt and hops, leaving this equal part burnt and bitter on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to fuller bodied, with a firmness in the mouth that is both sharp on the tongue initially and then creamier along the back. Hops add a nice underlying oiliness to the feel that helps keep this smooth, while alcohol mainly just adds some strength to the overall flavors and feel here.

This was a pretty darn nice take on an American Black Ale, with both hops and malt being represented well in equal fashion and this drank great for a nearly 9% beer. Hoppin' Frog had fallen off my radar a bit over the last couple of years but I’m glad I picked this one up, as these guys really know how to do these big beers right.

Poured from a 22oz bomber

A- pours a opaque black... no light what so ever... off white colored head... quickly dissolved to a thin ring around the beer.... slight lacing on the glass

S- piney sap, mango, pineapple... tropical fruits. Hint of roasted barely

T- tad roastiness to the tongue...piney hops, piney sap...

M- thin and creamy mouthfeel... moderate carbonation... earthy hop bite lingering

O- this beer always catches me off guard... looks like a stout, drinks like a ipa even though you still disagree. Nicely done and its hoppin frog.... its always good

3.48/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Coppery-brown pour creates very dark brown to opaque black body with ruby highlights at the edges, overlain by an inch thick tan head with good stickage and retention.

Citrusy hops are surprisingly absent from the aroma featuring mostly piney,spicy and grassy
hopage and dominant - perhaps overly so - dark malt with chocolate character. Some biscuity
malt can be picked up. There's distinctive minty aroma allegedly resulting from interaction between hops and dark, roasted malts.

Taste largely follows the nose with chocolaty dark malts and piney hop-flavor at the center,
with minimal bitterness, finish is medium-dry followed by roasty coffee-like aftertaste. The
absence of astringency from either black malts or hops adds positively to the overall impression.

Medium to medium-full body with lots of sweetness and tongue coating slicky sensation probably related to high-levels of dry hopping. Body that tends to coat the lips with a sticky film is a bit too heavy resembling a Stout rather than IPA.

Overall, a decent chocolate-piney Black IPA crossing the best features of both IPA and Porter/Stout, perhaps being overly leaned towards the later. Good nonetheless. (A bomber without bottling-date indication, into tulip).

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. No dating info that I could find. It was solid black in color with evidence of good carb streams breaking on the surface. It has a good sized, brown head that settled into a good collar and covering film. Good lacing with lots sticking.

The aroma was grassy and resinous hops mixed with equal dose of roasted and chocolate malts. Seem to be a good balance between the two. The taste was also well balanced and started with the hops then the malt sweetness overtaking it at the end. It wasn't bad in any sense but it just didn't excite me all that much either. Easy to drink for sure but also not sure I'll remember it tomorrow. Solid mouthfeel with good carb and sweet aftertaste.

Overall, a good serviceable brew but, as stated above, it just didn't stand out or really make me want to find another. I'd drink if given one but wouldn't seek it out either. Not available here in TX - got from Hoss. Rotation - one is enough; maybe on tap if best choice.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with one finger of medium brown foam in an opaque, black body. The head settles at a moderate law and leaves good lacing on the glass.

S - A strong espresso aroma with notes of pine and grapefruit in the background.

T - Green pine hops up front with a bit of sweaty hop character and lots of sweet, coffee. Dark caramel and more sweetened espresso in the middle and a finish of fruity hops, caramel, coffee, and mild bitterness.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - There is a lot of dark malt and a lot of hop flavor here, but a surprising lack of bitterness considering how much the hops and dark malt are emphasized. An enjoyable beer overall, but it would be more drinkable with a little more bitterness to balance out the syrupy sweetness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: single finger head with nice lacing on a very dark brown body.

S: lots of earthy and well blended citrus hops with a nutty and roasty presence. Each are well represented and complement rather than exclude the other.

T: very roasty with earthy hops up front and the coffee and roast in the middle with a sweet citrus hop character in the finish which is surprising as one would expect a bitter finish with this level of hop and coffee presence.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: This one is very well made. Both the roasted flavors and IPA flavors are represented to a high level. Its also very easy to drink. it has complex transitions which flow very nicely.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving Type - 22oz bottle

Appearance - Dark black with a creamy tan 1 inch head and lot sof sticky lacing. Looks like a nice porter.

Smell - Roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, coffee, light hop presence, grape, orange, rasin, plum.

Taste - Nice coffee/chocolate bite at first sip. Malts are roasty, and hops are made up of strong dark fruits, lots of plum and rasin. Brown sugar and mollasses add sweetness to a rather bitter drink. Near the finish some pine and orange does come out. Alcohol is masked well but there is a trace of warmth in the afertaste.

Mouthfeel - COats mouth with malts, hops and sugars. Tounge gets alot of malts and chocolate, dark fruity hops and sugars. Palate gets more of the same with some citric fruits at the end. Aftertaste is malty, bitter and coffee.

Overall - Awesome, one of the best black ipas. A perfect balance of porter and ipa, balanced and truely smooth and drinkible. Hard to believe its almost 9% alcohol, drinks like a 5% porter. Worth a drink for sure.

All hops on the nose. Pine, hard candy (jolly ranchers), and a little pineapple. Beautiful aroma on this beer, wish it was a touch more potent.

Jet black in color, like india ink. Creamy mocha head that laces nicely, but the head falls back into the beer rather fast which was a touch disappointing.

Hop Heathen has a wonderful taste! All those great aromas are present with pineapple dominating, but it adds a complexity of roast and chocolate on the finish. Lower smooth carbonation on this one with a creamy mouthfeel that makes this just so easy to drink. Alcohol burns slightly in the corners of my mouth in the front and back. Overall just wonderful.

Aroma is both smoky and hoppy - got me doing a Pavlov’s dog - with hints of mocha and molasses. Pours a rich, deep sable a whisker above black with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor - ooh, what flavor, crossing the best features of an IPA with the best features of a stout/porter. Hoppy, a little grassy, minimal bitterness, with notes of molasses, chocolate and quality coffee. Absolutely lip-smacking! Firm texture has a good amount of fizz. I love black ales, and I love hoppy beers, so the black IPA (an oxymoron, if you think about it) or Cascadian Black Ale is my fave.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 9.99. As with all Hoppin Frog beer there is no bottling or freshness date given. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.

Pours deep dark, near-black brown with one finger loose tan head. Small clumps of lacing.

Smells like a hoppy cup o' joe. Piney hops meet coffee with hints of cocoa, citrus and smoke.

Taste is a nice blend of those piney hops and dark malts. Pine, citrus, pleasantly charred malts, cocoa, bitter coffee and a bit of leather. The alcohol is only faintly perceptable.

Medium full feel with moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky. Long burnt hoppy aftertaste.

This is one of the better black ales I've had. It balances the IPA vs stout rather well, lending some key flavor profiles from both styles. If you're into the growing American black ale trend, this one is worth a try. I hope to get to try this on tap sometime.

Hoppin' Frog Hop Heathen Imperial Black Ale, Hoppin' Frog Brewig Company, Akron, Ohio. Here comes the gobbledygook: "An uncivilized amount of American hop spiciness along with a chocolately malt mix of dark roasted flavors create this inventive and tasty new beer style! What you get is the best of both worlds, a flavorful brood of dark malt and satisfying, assertive American hops. Raise you glass in a toast--to the Hop Heathen within you!" Just one note: are they using word "brood" they way they think they are?

8.8% ABV, 83 OG, 70 IBU

Appearance: fully black, brown head, settles down in no time.

Aroma: Big, grassy hops leave up, out, and in your face, surrounded by dark, roasted malts.

Taste: Warm, roasty, bitter, sharp and strong. Citrus-y hops are fairly smothered by the dark malt. Oddly enough, the flavor starts out big, then peters out. There's just not much "there" there. Or, any "here" here. Another hoppier porter, but not quite hoppy enough, and the high alcohol starts to intrude.

Huh. There's nothing really wrong or bad out of this. It just doesn't do anything for me. The body is full, but the texture is too blase, and the mouthfeel nothing but dull.

A bit of a let-down, since I like the last Hoppin' Frog so well, but the next should be better. Will that be my next beer? It's an imperial stout, …maybe not...maybe for my nightcap...

Pours an opaque very dark brown with two finger tan head, settles with thick lace for the first few inches. Smell: mildly roasty, caramel, earthy, citrus note. Hoppy Porter-like. Oh, and buttery... Taste: caramel, sugared dark fruit, quickly in to pine, tropical fruit, citrus rind. Sugary. Medium bodied, lightish carbonation. It misses, but not by much.

22oz bottle
appearance: As i pour this I am reminded of the FBS i have been drinking recently, its not quite as thick, but it looks pretty dead on in appearance color wise and similar head and lacing. Very nice.

Smell: Again as I poured this I smelled coffee, it seriously reminded me of FBS, not quite as strong in the coffee department, but I can smell the coffee as well as roasty chocolate mixed with a nice piney hop smell.

Taste: So delicious, lots of chocolate, roast, and coffee mix really well with the piney hops, its a really nice balance.

Mouthfeel: Not as thick as a stout, but getting to that point, but it fits with the perfect blend of stout and ipa flavors.

Overall: This is the best dark ipa/american black ale I've had. I rank it better than Sublimely self righteous, Yakima Glory, Blacktop and heavy seas black cannon. I think Hop heathen achieves the perfect balance of including the darker flavors and allowing the hops to accentuate them while still being a big part of the experience. If I want an American black ale that is closer to a straight up IPA i'll have a sublimely self righteous or yakima glory. But, if I want a perfectly balanced brew that highlights the dark and the hops, then I'll have a hop heathen.

A: Pours a very dark brown with a big and dense chocolate milk colored head. Fades slowly, leaving an almost solid wall of thick lacing behind.

S: Oh yeah, loaded with pine and grapefruit. Strong chocolate and grainy sort of coffee and earthycharacter follows it up nicely. Get a little bit of garlic/oniony hops too, like summit perhaps?

T: Creamy, very creamy. Up front there is again, pine and grapefruit with just a hint of garlic and onion. Not as strong as in the nose. Big bitter chocolate in the middle with some coffee, like dark chocolate covered coffee beans. Ends with some lingering char and bitter bitter chocolate. A little bit of pine and earth. Creamy and smooth like an oatmeal stout.

M: As mentioned above, very creamy and smooth like an oatmeal stout. A touch chalky. Medium/heavy body. Nice.

O: One of the better black ales I've had. A lot of them are super duper hoppy, which isn't a bad thing but they become almost like regular IPAs at that point - no roasted malt character. This one is better balanced. Good balance of hop flavors amongst themselves as well. Nice bitter chocolate and a creamy, chalky sort of body. Very enjoyable and drinkable. Probably second only to Wookey Jack and Stone 15th.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a duvel glass

A: pours a very deep dark brown almost black with half a finger of mocha coffe colored head that dissapates quickly and leaves some spots of lacing.

S: loads of roasty espresso with a mocha touch, j set neath the roasty notes I get a nice layer if piney hops, very nice, very toasty coffee like aroma overall, smells delicious.

T: much like the nose loads of mocha like roasty espresso and a nice bite of bitter piney hops in there with the roast... This is very well rounded and incredibly delicious.

M: medium body with a nice creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation, the alcohol is well hidden as this is nice and drinkable.

O: this is a very well rounded black ipa, roasty espresso notes dominate but are complimented nicley with piney hops o create a very well rounded very delicious overall brew... Really enjoyed this one.

Drank from a 1 pint 6 fl. oz. (22 fl. oz) bottle purchased at Julio's Liquors, Westboro, MA
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured super dark brown (bordering on black) and was topped by a one-plus finger tall head of stiff, dense, caramel colored foam. Sheets of thick, sticky lacing coated the glass.

The aroma was pleasant but not quite as assertive as I was hoping it would be. An even mix of roasted malts and piney hops dominated. Mild cocoa notes. Touch of smoke. The nose became more punchy as the beer warmed. Espresso notes came through strong.

The flavor profile was quite similar to the nose. Lots of roasted malts on front end. Some coffee and chocolate. Hint of smoke. The hops hit hard mid palate. Initially, they were citrusy, but they turned more piney and bitter as the beer moved along the palate. The finish contained a nice mix of roasty, smoky malts, espresso and a bitter, pine needle-like hoppiness. At 8.8% ABV, this beer hid its alcohol prowess quite well.

The mouthfeel was fairly non-descript. Medium bodied with a crisp, moderate effervescence.

Tasty, interesting and quite drinkable, Hoppin' Frog's Hop Heathen is a really solid beer. However, as one of the highest rated American black ales in the world, I was expecting a bit more.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A real solid three finger tan head, it's going nowhere, styrofoamy and stuck and solid with clumping lacing all around. Sits on a real dark walnut black to brown, with just a hint of red there too. Aggressive, real nice looking.

woah on the nose, this is ripping dirt and earth like hops, mixing with a great ripping coffee bean action. Dirt soil and fresh ground coffee, how fun is that! Smells more like coffee than beer.

Hit that palate and it's all that and a bag of chips. Creamy milky light bodied depth. Coffee richness with a malt milk body. Hop angle on the finish is a bit burried, but a mix of lots of milky chocolate, and burning coffee. Perhaps that long roast is being brought out with the bittering hop angle. There's a bit of lime astringency from perhaps hop character, but it hints of coffee acidic sourness more so.

Oh man this is really good. Seriously winning brew, big bold, without a heavy boozy quality. Flat out excellent! A java bean heads dream, and this from a Black IPA and not a stout. Stunning work!

Appearance: This beer pours a deep brown color and his reddish hues that splatter the pint. It is topped with ¾” of light brown colored head that lingers nicely. Belgian lacing lines the glass after each sip.
Smell: Heathen has a nice blend of roasted malt and hop aroma that mix in the nose.
Taste: The taste follows along side the nose very tastefully; the roasted malts play the main role with hop bitterness files in to take up the extra space.
Mouthfeel: The body of this beer is a bit of the thicker side than I expected but that isn’t a bad thing. I prefer a beer that has a thicker body to it so it lets the flavors stick around longer for me to enjoy.

Saw this brew in a local beer shop and sounded tasty. 22oz bottle...

A: Super dark with no light shining through and a small 3/4 inch khaki colored head which fades to some nice bubbly lace atop the brew. No lacing traces on the glass. Good.

S: I get some sweet malt with a spicy hop blended in upfront. Quickly following are some roasted / chocolate notes. A mild alcohol scent peeks out of the backend. Decent.

T: First sip starts with a watery / sugary malt blend quickly subdued by a carbonation wall which leads into a mild earthy hop with a nice spiciness. The beer finished as it began with a subtle carbonation bite blended with watery / sugary malt. Decent.

M: Medium body brew with a medium-hard carbonation. A dry malty finish. Good.

O: All in all, this is a solid brew. It's one of those that is good, but I probably won't go out of my way for. Hoppin Frog does make some solid beer though.

22 oz bottle, no bottled-on date, poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours black with a finger of beige head, nice retention and thick lacing.

S- Smells incredible, the first whiff yields a lot of bright, citric, dank hops and pine. Later more chocolate, cocoa and roasted grain.

T- Big rich chocolate and cocoa flavors, some dark coffee beans and a bit of roasted flavor, the hops are citric and piney but are definitely overshadowed by the malts.

M- Medium to full-bodied, smooth, very creamy feel, semi-dry finish.

O- A really awesome dark, hoppy beer, one of the few I've had that lets the chocolate and malt flavors shine so nicely, very tasty and easily drinkable for being so big.

S- grapefruit and pine hop aromas blend with semi sweet chocolate and rich coffee bean like roast from the malt.

T- juicy hop flavor of grapefruit and tangerine up front. Rich semi-sweet chocolate and soft roasted malt flavors in the middle. Finishes with iced mocha coffee with cream, medium hop bitterness and lingering leafy hop flavor.

MF- creamy velvety full mouthfeel with a medium body. Average carbonation.

D- great drinkability.

reviewed from notes 7/29/12.

poured into duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Black bodied beer with 1 finger tan head that drop to a thin cap. a bit of stoppy lace.

Smell: Chocolate and charcoal malts. Pine hops with a touch of grass and herbal notes.

Taste: Pine and grassy hops. Charcoal note with roasty malts. Hint of chocolate. Has a really chalky and green finish to it that is moderately bitter. The aftertaste is kind of wierd and a little distracting.

Mouthfeel: a medium thin bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It drinkable, but has that characteristic hoppen frog watered down mouthfeel.

Overall: This is middle of the road. NG Black Top and Firestone Walker Wookey Jack are the best black IPA's that I have tried. This one is a long way off from those beers.

Thanks, Eric.

Appearance: Dark brown with ruby highlights, topped by two fingers of foam.

Smell: Cocoa and roast, resinous hops. Evergreen, a little mint. Clean yeast profile. Really pleasant aroma. Leans a bit more toward dark malt than hops, but it works.

Palate: Pine, a bit of citrus and mint, cocoa, roast. Medium bodied with sticky resinous bitterness. A ton of pine flavor. Excellent black DIPA.

This looked impressive just by looking at the bottle. Grabbed on and opened it up later that night. This beer poured out as a really nice looking black color with a brown colored foamy head on top. The smell of the beer is damn near perfect... It's got a wonderful aroma of roasted chocolaty malts blended with the big lively hops that are used in there too. The taste is right up there with the nose. A stunning combo of hops mixed with dark malts for one of the most impressive and balanced black IPA's I've ever had. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated with a creamy body to it. Overall this beer is really good in my opinion. I am very impressed and I could enjoy this one again and again.

Bottle purchased at Binny's Lakeview. Served in a plastic cup on Freddy's boat. Guessing this is about two months old, even though it only reached Chicago shelves recently.

A - Tan foam settles to a thin cap and splotchy lacework. Very dark near-black body, with some brownish glints to it.

S - A nice mixture of brown sugar, milk chocolate, citrus and piney hops, and dank herbs.

T - This is the kind of Black IPA that I like - lots of chocolate, caramel, and mild roast characters in the malt bill, but without the astringent black malts found in many beers of this style. Pleasant piney hop bitterness, and perhaps a touch of citrus.

M - Medium body that's sufficiently hefty for the 8.8% ABV. Moderate carbonation, creamy texture, and a fairly dry finish. Not much alcohol presence considering this is more of a double Black IPA.

D - Really nice beer - kind of wish I'd gotten to it a tad fresher, but the malt bill was interesting enough to support the beer when given a chance. Not terribly priced for Hoppin' Frog either at $9.99.
