Hanoi (835) - 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.

Bricks (976) - Delaware, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Pitch black, decent foamy head. Smells good, like a fairly tame IPA. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel... very balanced, not too bitter or too malty.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2016
Dark brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of licorice and chocolate with fruity and herbal hoppy notes. Sweetish roasted flavour with caramel and licorice, herbal hops and a solid bitter finish

Mishnok (96) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
From 550ml can. Pours black with good latte coloured head which stays for a while. Aroma fruity, slightly metallic. Taste fresh and fruity with slight bitter tang. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AJL1980 (45) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Can from Raynvile store, Leeds. Pours black with lots of coffee notes. Tastes of rich coffee but actually a lighter finish with fruit or citrus notes. Nicer than I expected and good if you fancy something different.

BrettGT (183) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2016
Can. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, flowers, coffee, milk chocolate. Pours black with reddish nuances and a beige head. Taste follows the nose with nice amounts of citrusy hops shining through. Medium bitterness with a solid sweet and roasty malt backbone. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation, roasty and bitter finish. I like that the hops shine mostly on this one. Nice.

copestx (103) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2016
Pours with a nice tan head. Coffee, toffee, and dark chocolate notes in aroma and taste. Lots of pine and citrus hops up front, almost juicy in character and balanced perfectly against the roasted malts. Hop forward -- definitely an IPA more than a stout with hops thrown in for some extra character -- which was the original idea of the Black IPA. Definitely one of the best of its style.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- schwarze leicht durchsichtige Farbe - geringe Schaumentwicklung - leichte Noten nach Schokolade, Malz und eine Spur Rauch - geschmacklich dann eine richtige Hopfenbombe ohne je unangenehm zu werden - eine wunderbare malzige Süße bleibt leicht im Hintergrund - leicht ölige Konsistenz mit perfekter Kohlensäuredosierung - im Abgang bleibt der Hopfen-/Malzcharakter sehr gut erhalten Fazit: Fantastisches Black IPA

330ml bottle from LCBO. 7.4% alc/vol. Pours a deep brown colour with one finger of lasting head. Floral aroma with notes of grapefuit.Taste matches the aroma with a strong hoppy character and subtle caramel finish. Moderate carbonation.

AssKicker (229) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2016 A peine le "Shlack !" de la canette émis, que les senteurs de houblons viennent chatouiller les narines. Couleur sombre (sisi), mousse bien balèze sur la durée, et bien crémeuse à souhait. En revanche une fois en bouche, les saveurs de houblons sont totalement bouffées par les notes de cafés. Enfin ça c’est le premier avis sur l’on a. Une fois les papilles apprivoisées, le tout s’affine délicatement... mais pas trop non plus. C’est sympa, mais je suis quand même déçu pour une Black IPA, c’est presque une black tout court pour le coup.

Moolesen (477) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016
Can 33cl. Black with a nice cremy light brown head. Citrus, pine and fresh cut wood aroma. Great taste. This is a truly black ipa, not something in between. The hops are dominant in the taste but compliments greatly with the malts. Soft to drink, but with a nice long finish. Great beer.
