Bottle at home. Black colour with a tan head. Roasted malt and bitterness. Light citrus. Dry finish. Not bad.

Donkerbruin tot zwart, maar te wit schuim. Ruikt vooral naar chocola, net chocomelk. Wat weinig smaak verder. Iets bitter. Oké, maar niet super.

Gazington (15) - Ennis, IRELAND - JUN 3, 2016
I am a fan of Black IPA’s, and this is a decent one. Felt it was a little low in the aroma but the the appearance and palate were good. One that I would drink again

KyotoLefty (8907) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 28, 2016
Bottle. Nice Munich-like malt nose, chocolate, biscuits, grass, and light citrus. Dark brown with orange and a thick, fine head. Sweet malt flavor, some caramel, chocolate, grass, figs, light raisin. Great malt, lightly hoppy. Smooth, full body. Quite German.

Padchenko (247) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 6, 2016
Pours black with virtually no head. Hoppy, malt with some caramel sweetness, particularly of note in the finish. Lovely

GenkiGonzo (986) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2016
Bottle from O’Donovans. Dark cola colour with almost no head. Malty citrus aroma. Quite bitter, pine and citrus hops and a burnt malty finish.

jaghana (5326) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle 50cl, a dark beer with huge copper head. Nose is on green lemon and ripped vegetables. Aroma is on dark malt, coffee, hop resin, dark chocolate, body is low, green herb, light licorice, bit low complexity. Finish on green herb, grapefruit.

BobyFischer (294) - FRANCE - FEB 16, 2016
Une black IPA d’initiation : fluide, ronde, douce, fine et désaltérante. Pas très joyeux non plus mais une bonne brune de soif.

hoptimusPrimed (154) - SPAIN - JAN 2, 2016
Poured from bottle, little head. Good black colour as would expect! Nice balance of hops, caramel and malt

Megager (12) - - DEC 31, 2015
Decent not over powering hoppy flavour. I’m not really getting strong coffee/chocolate here. Soft citrus, grapefruit tones with a roasted flavour interspersed. Bitter after taste. A good solid black IPA, and one of many strong IPAs from this brewery.
