I had this one out of a bottle simply because I was offered it as a guest.

I can't accurately comment on the color because I had it out of a bottle but let's just assume it was black as the name dictates. On the nose I got a bit more dark malts than I did hops, but some citrus presence was definitely detectable. On the palate I get dark malts once again , but it's not coffeeish like a stout or overly acrid. I would suspect Carafa malt of some sort. I don't get much of the typical rye spicy notes; the rye element is subtle. Maybe a bit of grapefruit. Amazingly creamy mouthfeel which I guessing was due to the rye and heavy hopping. Pretty good beer overall and an unexpected offering from Long Trail; these guys really put their beers into overhaul since I last had one.

12oz bottle bought as part of the current Long Trail Farmhouse Ales mixed 12-pack from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA. Bottled on 10/9/14.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" tan head over the slightly cloudy reddish brown brew. Head fades gradually, with sporadic lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and spices.

Taste starts sweet, spices kick in next, and then coasts through to the close with balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Enjoyable take on the style.

Not really IPA like tasting, but overall it's still very good.
