Keg@against the grain
Deep ruby amber with dense foamy beige head. Berry fruits and yoghurt on the nose, sherbet, sharp, perhaps kiwi hops, pithy dry finish. Decent but not really a BIPA.

teorn88 (3919) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at Kings Arms tap takeover, London. It pours a hazy dark brown color with ruby edges and a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts and dried fruits, toffee. Taste is quite harsh roasty and bitter with notes of coffee, earth, cocoa, tangy red berries and piny hops. Finishes resinous and bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent BIPA, not the freshest hops

trapped (1509) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 25, 2014
Draught. Dark brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, floral hos aroma, medium carbonation, pine and lavender flavored balanced hoppy taste, medium finish with slight bitterness at the very end. Quite a complex and interesting beer, loved it.

radzik5555 (602) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Ciemny miedziany/jasny brunatny, lekko mętne. Piana jasno beżowa.
Aromat: Intensywny, słodki chmielowy, głównie marakuja, melon, mango, ananas, żywica. Prażone bakalie, przypalony cukier, lekko tytoniowy. Świetny!
Odczucie: Wysycenie niskie, ciało średnie, faktura gładka, kremowo-oleista.
Smak: Lekko słodkie, zupełnie inaczej smakuje niż pachnie. Ma nuty palonych słodów, których w aromacie nie ma prawie wcale. Goryczka niska grejpfrutowa.
Całość: Nie wygląda jak BIPA ale poza tym świetne, genialnie nachmielone na zimno.

first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isn’t black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. It’s really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ’full’ body. a bit soury too, but it’s not a problem for me - it’s got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me it’s great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.

haukur (1473) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 7, 2014
dark brown, small but solid head, loads of lacing. Tropical nose, obvious simcoe character. Quite easy with a bitter finish. Easily the best black IPA I have ever had

MadRobin (2437) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at Max's in Fell's Point, Baltimore, MD. Clear mahogany with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and toffee. Taste of citrus, toffee and mild tropical fruit. Malt dominates the finish. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Travlr (16791) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Draft at Churchkey’s 5th anniversary, courtesy of staff, thank you! Clear dark maroon color, fluffy beige head. Roasty coffee grounds aroma, light pine. Taste is very malty. Taste is OK, but it doesn’t taste anything like any black IPA I’ve ever had before. Off style.
