Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This assertively hopped medium-bodied American black ale exudes a combination of woodsy and grapefruit hop notes, blended together with a complex dark malt character and subtle hints of chocolate and coffee.

From a growler.
Sweet malts with faint dark roasted malts. The dark roast and some hops appear in the taste.
Oddly, given the sweet aroma, this has a bit more char than I prefer.
Black IPL? .. at least a black APA.
Earthy and herbal hops in the finish and aftertaste.

Cask. Barrel Aged. 'Nuff said. And I'm not even a fan of black ales!

This beer is a definite black IPA. The flavor and smell is that of a IPA but its very good. It is lighter tasting than expected

Nice dark color. Had this fresh at Barley Mow. Nice head and lacing. Strong piney hop aroma. Dark chocolate, roasty upfront, finishing with hop bitterness. Just what you expect from a black IPA. Very nice.

This was the bartenders choice for my tasting paddle at Mad Beach Brewing; a guest tap.
Dark brown body with a khaki-tan head; nice amount of lacing left in the glass.
Sweet smelling roast with hops!
Taste is delicious, really well balanced; chocolate and hops!
Medium mouth feel.
Was really surprised by this one; I don't usually enjoy Black IPA's because sometimes the roasted malts and hops don't play off of each other well, but this has a chocolate sweetness that matches well with the hop bitterness.
