Bottle at home, which is probably a bit stupid at this time of night, but hell, I ainít working in the morning! Pours jet black, good tan head & lacing. Brunt coffee aromas, pipe tobacco, soy, prunes, then hops come through, but just pine. Taste is a big booming richness, smooth too in the mouth. Hellís teeth, a damned fine beer. Iím going to shut up and enjoy the rest of it.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Pours near black with brown head and great lacing. Aroma is a soy sauce malts, and cacao. Taste is dark roasted malts, toffee, and dark chocolate. This is a thick one.

Pours black with lite foam, leaving only a ring that hugged my glass after it dissipates. The aroma is of dark malts, hops, and carmel malts. In tasting I picked up on mildly bitter hops, malts, and a touch of sweetness and dryness in the finish. Overall a solid beverage. Itís worth experiencing.

Tap. Dark, dark brown with a tan head. Smells of toasted malt, caramel and dark fruit. Flavor is the same, with a light bitter end and some warmth.

Hoppy citrus nose, berries. Roasted malt and hops combo, some dark fruit, bitter coffee finish. A great black "IPA" experience, once you go black... youíll never go back :)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coffee, chocolate, raisins, soy sauce, faint pine. Thin body slightly disappointing at first. As it warms, a bit more fruitiness and dry alcohol. Each sip (or gulp) is different, some thick and creamy, the next thin more like a porter. Long coffee and tangy plum finish. Overall a good easy-drinking brew, and a good price for an imported beer (in NZ).

A fantastic example, very smooth with a strong burnt coffee and chocolate flavours. Love it!
