Im wondering what some of your favorites were. Looking for some good commercial examples to try. Wanting to maybe brew up a batch, but should probably know what I'm getting myself into first. So, give some names.

Deschutes Hop In The Dark, Stone Sublimely Self Righteous, and 21st Amendment Back In Black have been my favorites, and in that order.

Hopworks Urban Brewery CDA is delicious. It was also the first CDA I tried.

Iniquity by Southern Tier is another good one.

Consider ordering the Northern Brewer kit for your first CDA. I love it and have seen nothing but rave reviews from others.

And to answer your original question...Black Galaxy from Half Pints Brewery.

I haven't had that many of them, but the Stone Sublimely Self Righteous is great

Haven't had many either but so far one of my favorites has been Widmer Brothers - Pitch Black IPA.

I much prefer the Hopworks CDA over Sublimely Self Righteous (where the roast character plays a pretty small role IMO).

Big fan of deschutes hop in the dark. not a huge fan of Alaskan's black ipa. I think those are the only two i've tried besides the Northern Brewer recipe kit, which I thought was very good.

I'm actually going to brew up a session style CDA that Dawson made on an episode of Brewing TV called back to basics. Looked super easy and super tasty. I emailed him about it and he said it was good and gave me some suggestions of tweaks that he has made since.
