Bottle at EBBC14, dark amber-brown, piney, spicy and honeyed nose, rich and dry-sweet, notably hoppy but still well balanced, with hints of grapefruit, melon and toffee. Long dry-sweet citrus-bitter finish. Nice.

Stark, aber doch aromatisch und beinahe süffig mit einer netten Mischung aus Hopfen, Karamellen und Kaffee.

Bottle from beersiveknown - Thank you Steve! The beer pours out in a hazy amber colour with steady head and smooth body. Nice aroma of mandarinas and fresh hops. Taste of mango, citrus, mandarina peel, spruce, hops, barley and thyme. Wonderful to drink - the alcohol is very well hidden. Enjoyed it a lot.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber in colour. Aroma gives pine, wood, booze and a bit of grapefruit. Taste is harsh bitter pine, booze, grapefruit (really pithy citrus). Really bitter. Rough bitterness continues into the aftertaste. Hop flavour not really there other than an almost herbal pine note. Boozy finish. Bit of caramel. Not Blacks best, but to be fair it's not their recipe!

Bottle from the brewery
I had a hand in brewing this but I want completeness so need to rate. Getting my wife to give the numbers for impartiality
Bright midamber with lacing offwhitehead. Gentle sparkle of carbonation, peach and mango rind...the citra and galaxy really showing up. Medium body, alcohol really well hidden, tastes 6%. Sticky and pithy, red berries, mango rind and waxy lemon peel. (daisy says ammonia on the nose)

on draft @ AtG. Deep amber red color, finger of off white head, grapefruit, floral and toffee aromas. Big oily mouthfeel, very smooth until the hops kick in then its all bitter grapefruit and pine that lasts forever. Finish is incredibly long and bitter, did I say that enough....it has a long finish. Nice Imperial here at 9%, hides the abv very well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Farringtons. Clean golden amber with a thin head. Tough beer this one, too tough for me. Intense hoppy bitter, if you are a hop head this is probably your thing.

Keg @ Salthouse, Galway 
Amber, clear, thin white head, good lacing
Aroma - Sweet fruity malts, piney, soft hop resins, lots of sticky tropical fruits, sticky nectar like fruits
Taste as aroma, sweet citrus, sticky hop resins, lots of sweet fruity malts, booze well hidden, sweet tropical fruits, lots of sweet fruits
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, very oily, smooth, quite syrup like, lots of bitter hops to offset the bitterness but not quite enough - tbh it’s just rather a bit too sweet
Overall - I’m this beer could withstand beer could stand more ferocious hopping to reduce that sweetness a tad, but it’s still a really good beer
