olsvammel (4942) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2015
On tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Hoppy smell with citrus. Similar taste, some grapefruit but not roasted. Definitely hop forward. It isn’t really black, more dark brown and I didn’t get any dark malty or chocolaty aromas. So not really a BIPA but still a nice beer.

mkel07 (4666) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2014
330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesn’t strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

Beersiveknown (4664) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 13, 2014
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.

erickok (4621) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2011
Great combo of hoppy taste and malty sweetness. Overall a full bitter (but not overdone) taste. Very dark red, solid lasting head. Long aftertaste, only a little astringent. Grass, cherry.

TimE (4533) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
light brown color. Not enough roast in the body and comes across much more like a hoppy brown ale, with tropical fruit notes. Very similar to Baird Angry boy brown ale. Not a black IPA at all. Not bad, if trying for brown ale.

Fra fat på DØE festivalen: en mørk ipa 5,8%. Velsmakende med mye aroma og en fruktig bitterhet.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle in Italy. 5.8 % abv. Aroma is full of floral hops, resin, caramel and citrus. Flavor is bitter, fruity, slightly spicy and with a load of hops. Thick body, heavy carbonation. Impressive brew.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3796) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 18, 2013
6% draft glass at Rokko Diner. A very dark brown with a bit of a reddish quality to it with a beige head & a hoppy citrus & mild funk aroma. The taste is medium-full bodied, citrus hoppy then rich dark malts with a touch of chocolate. Quite nice
