Great hop flavor with burnt chocolate/coffee. Hops shine a bit more in flavor than others of this style. Dark Malt and alcohol come through a bit too harsh.

It was viscous and poured like oil. It had a great looking brown head that hung for the duration and a strong hop aroma. The taste though was horribly bitter and a little like eating grass.

Amazingly complex and tasty mix of a dark hoppy beer

Had at a Black IPA tasting. Poured like cough syrup, slow & thick, that produced a thick, creamy, tan head. Big hop aroma with an equally big roasted malt, chocolate character. Tastes the same with a definite alcohol presence but it isn't overpowering. The clear winner of the night. I will have this again!

Very smooth and smoky flavor. Enjoy most of Stone's beers and this is no exception. Smells of chocolate and is that Bourbon?

Awesome beer. I'm not a big fan of the style but this one works. Major hop aroma

Drank while making lunches and having spicy pork. Lost flavor. Strong!

Amazing, had this in Charlotte on draft. An Imperial Black IPA\ Cascadian Dark? I tasted a ton of roasted malts with a lighter hop characteristic. Maybe slightly off the style but one of the best brews I've had!
