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.

330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesn’t strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a hazy and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.
