Had on tap at the Buddha beer bar- pours a dark black color, with two fingers of mocha colored head, good retention and nice even lacing.
Smell is mild and mostly of light citrusy hops and chocolate malt.
Taste is more roasted and chocolate malts than hops by far. Somewhat disappointing and more like a rich porter than a black ale.
Mouthfeel is nice- medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Won't get this one again, even though it's a decent beer. Not what I was thinking (too chocolatey and rich without enough hop presence) and definitely not as good as the rye.

on tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY
Pours near black under a dark tan head that leaves rings of heavier lacing.
On the nose I get dark malts and chocolate.
Tasty and fresh tasting brew. More dark chocoate and dark malts. With hops drying out the finish.
Glad to try this full flavor and chocolatalicious black PA.

"The Bronx Black Pale Ale offers a smooth and complex contrast of dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors with bright and tropical guava, mango and pear hop flavors and aromas. Three different American malts stand up to generous amounts of West Coast El Dorado and Citra hops in an unfiltered and unpasteurized ale. Says Brown, “The intent behind the Black PA was to create a complex and unique beer from the dichotomy of dark malts and bright hops”.
From 01/06/12 notes. Had this on tap at Pony Bar on the UES. 14 oz. pour in a pint glass.
a - Pours an almost black dark brown color, with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.
s - Smells of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, some bitter chocolate, burnt malts, light citrus hops, and light resin and pine hops. Nice mixture here; lots of chocolate and roasted malts up front, with some light hops on the backend.
t - Tastes of roasted malts bitter chocolate, sweet chocolate, citrus hops, fruity malts, pine hops, toasted malts, some coffee. Fruit in the taste is nice and the hops are still there, though the chocolate and roasted malts still dominate it. Nice taste.
m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Easy to drink and no heat at all, a touch too carbonated.
o - Overall a really nice beer; this is my favorite beer from Bronx Brewery so far, as I like it much better than their normal Pale Ale and like it a touch better than the rye version. The roasted malts and chocolate dominate it but are very nice, and you do get some light citrus and pine hops in it as well. Easy to drink and worth seeking out, I'd get it again.

A: Poured from the growler ($11.99 at Westmere Beverage) into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is black with a small (half-finger) light-brown head. Leaves decent lacing.
S: Nice - roasty and hoppy at the same time, with the roastiness predominating over an earthy hoppiness.
T: Coffee beans, coffee, roasted barley malt and chocolate lay a nice black ale malty foundation. Hops are of the earthy bitter type, somewhat minerally. Char bitterness meets the hoppy bitterness (and a touch of dark chocolate) at the end of the sip, but a bit of chocolate malt lingers in the aftertaste. Nice balance here.
M: A little bit thin in heft; call it the lighter side of medium in weight. Carbonation is modest, leaving a slightly creamy feel.
O: My first Bronx beer, and I'm giving this the opposite of a Bronx Cheer. This is very close to how I want my perfect American Black Ale to be: roasty, chocolatey and bitter. Had the hops been a little more "juicy" or piney, this might just be my favorite ABA. Solid stuff.
