Hanoi (753) - Greater Manchester, - OCT 4, 2013
Nose is is toast, butter, biscuits, lemon, slight cream. Taste leads with pine, and grapefruit from the citra, leading through to licorice herbs smoke, ash, coco, pepper and roasted malt. Finish is long bitter and very dry, balancing the pine with ash. Mouthfeel is rich. Very nice beer. Still a stupid concept though.

Zapach intensywny, paloność, czekolada, słodkie owoce tropikalne, grejpfrut, trawa, igliwia. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, zmętnione. Piana obfita, kremowa, drobna, średnio trwała, bardzo ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku słodkie, pełne, owoce tropikalne, cytrusy, żywica, czekolada, paloność, trawa. Średnia, ziołowa goryczka, wysycenie średnie. Świetne piwo!

ZodiacM (627) - NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
Uit blik geschonken. Mooi zwart bier met een cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aromas van geroosterde mout, hop. Smaak is licht rokerig, hoppig, chocola, koffie. Mooie bittere nasmaak. Mooie black IPA.

AnG_BrgNor (332) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 23, 2016
Can. Black with nice lasting head. Aroma and taste is mostlt malty with grassy hops. I belive its because it only 3 days left to the BB-date! Its actually not bad, but its proboably far from "a fresh one". I hope to get another one soon to rerate it.

dnicolaescu (1629) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 23, 2016
CAN 33 CL. Almost black, ruby highlights, beige head. Lots of hops in the nose - tropical fruit, grapefruit, candied fruit, some dank. Moderate malt sweetness and vanilla notes. Nothing „black”. The taste starts with a light malts and vanilla sweetness and, yep, notes of chocolate (only on the first sip). But the hops raise their head immediately with zesty spicy and dank notes. Smooth and spicy from the beginning to the end. Excellent.

mgajdaczewa (1427) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
W aromacie ciemne słody, czekolada, popiół, szczątkowa chmielowość. W smaku podobnie, dominuje czekoladowe odczucie palonego słodu, lekki sos sojowy, goryczka średnia, odczucia chmielu prawie brak. Piwo w puszce też się utlenia. Szkoda.

Aroma especial para una black ipa que parece anticipar acidez que no se percibe después en boca. Rica, rica.

Evilkniamhel (300) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2016
Can from Appellation Wines. Pours opaque black with a nice fawn head that lasts. Aromas of moss, grapefruit, dark chocolate, coffee, berries. Rich and full-bodied to taste, yet lovely and fruity. Awesome.
