Color: 45.5   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 13   
Tasting Notes: Slight roastiness thats well balanced with malt and citrusy/fruity hops.   

One of my favorite beers I've brewed to date so I thought I'd throw it up here. Overall, I'm very impressed with the outcome. If you can't find Black Prinze use Carafa III or debittered black.

I also did a "Yin" to the Yang here. Instead of the black prinze and chocolate malt it uses rye but everything else is identical.

Single Infusion mash at 152, batch sparged at 170.

Primary was 10 days @ 68 and secondary was 7 days plus another 5 days with the dry hops.

Looks good. Been wanting to make a black ipa for a while now. Do you get some good roasted notes from it?

Yeah, good roastiness but its not astringent at all. This beer is literally 35 days old so it hasn't had time to smooth out either. The first impression when drinking is that its an ipa but the finish is coffee like. Using dehusked/debittered dark grains is really the key to black IPA's. The Black Prinze is a seasonal grain that was apparently intended to be used in Black IPA's. I also considered using some Midnight wheat but the LHBS said it gets really roasty when using that much.
