Pours a deliciously thick black with an amazing hop burst rising out of the glass. Packed with the pungent fruit of citra hops the beer’s backbone holds it up well. Exquisitely balanced, with a moderate roast character letting the hops do the bittering. There is sweetness in there but exactly the right amount. This is a hell of a beer.

Wonderfully fresh and prominent aroma of grass, resin and chocolate. Black body - as the name suggests - pours with a frothing ivory head that settles into large bubbles. Medium sweetness with treacle notes is well matched with a lingering, clean bitter finish. Smooth and oily medium body. A delicious and layered black IPA.

Very hoppy smell and taste, warm alcohol, thick texture. The malts are on hold for some time, and then lack the usual burnt malt taste im accustomed to in dark ales. Pretty damn nice

From can large foamy head that lasts. Dark brown to black color. Smell of fruity hops that reminds me of strawberry banana milk shake. Mildly fruity smokey burbon taste with a bitter but good after taste. I prefer gamma ray and bloody’ell but still good.
