4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from can into shaker glass. Deep dark pour with long lasting tan foamy head. Aroma is hops, malt, roasty. Taste is a nice balace of sweet and bitter. Medium to full body, thick creamy texture. Very nice lively carbonation. Nice slightly dry malty finish. If I had not known this was a black IPA, I would have guessed it was some variety of a stout!

Bottle, 33cl - semi clear brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, pine needles and caramel. Flavor is fruity with notes of hop resin, pine needles, citrus, peaches and coffee. Very pleasant easy to drink beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark red body, almost black with a tan head that had good lace and nice retention. Aroma had mild roasted malts upfront. A nice citrus hop note, but there was this slight soapy aroma to it. Slightly off putting. Flavor was mildly bitter and the roasted malts seemed not to have an real affect on the flavor. Light on the palate. Somewhat disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a coca-cola dark caramel, bordering on black with small off-white head. the head dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing. aroma is unmistakeable roasted malts and tangy fruity hops. taste follows with nice roasted and earthy flavors of caramel. upon reflection, the hop notes are stronger than the roasted malts. said hops are bitter and fruity with notes of orange rind. body is thick and full.

A touch of resin and citrus in the aroma pours a brown/blackish color with minimal multicolored head. Thin body with flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roast, decent bitterness. After drinking my pint for a while the hops start to show up. Very drinkable defiantly not a CDA and not black

Pours a dark black, but light can seep through the edges of the glass. Has a small off white head and smells of rick malts followed by a strong hop character. Taste starts off with a bit of malt sweetness followed by bitterness and a bit of citrus, good beer enjoyable.

Delicious intersection of hoppy, cinnamon and chocolate taste. A must if you love IPA

Enticing dark chocolate and coffee aroma. Great deep red/brown appearance, translucent. Rich, slightly smoky taste with lingering aftertaste. Just delicious. Fizzy mouthfeel - only downside to this beer is that it lacks body. Still very tasty and drinkable.

Pours very dark brown-black with a light tan head. Aroma is malt with a touch chocolate. Taste is malty at first and then pushed out by bitter hops with a touch of piney citrus. Not quite as well-balanced as it could be.
