dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours dark brown but turns black as it pools in the glass with a big off white head. Nose is fresh pine, roasted coffee and ocean spray. Taste is mostly bitter throughout. Light sweetness for balancing. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Medium body with a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 9, 2012
03/06/2012 La Tana (tap). Marroncina, non molto intensa, torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, a grana grossolana, abbastanza persistente. Naso splendido, come consuetudine per le creazioni di Leonardo, luppoli e malti tostati si sposano alla perfezione. In bocca è un bel mix di malti tostati e luppoli, con un perfetto equilibrio generale. Corpo un po’ leggerino, carbonazione corretta. Birra magnifica.

DeliriumT (501) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2012
This beer pours a nice black colour with decent lasting white head. The aroma is fresh and full of resiny hops. The flavour is lightly burnt sugar with citrus bitterness. Very enjoyable Italian black IPA.

18/11/12 - 75cl bottle @ Horecaexpo (Gent) - BB: III/14 (2012-1286)

Clear dark amber to almost brown beer, small off-white irregular head, unstable. Aroma: lots of sweet sugary fruits, syrup, honey, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some caramel, bit sweet, bitter hops, fruity, ripe peaches. Aftertaste: very bitter, dry, some grapefruit, lemon peel, little spicy, some alcohol coming through. Pretty good beer!

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with full tan head and heavy lacing. Upfront aroma of citrus, pine needles and fruity Belgian esters. Taste is quite sweet - bready malts, Belgian notes and lots of citrus. Lots of flavour for such a low percentage beer. Lingering citric bitterness. Really solid drop.

Un gusto veramente elegante, con il tostato e l’amaro perfettamente bilanciati che ne fanno un gioiellino tra le black ipa italiane. Risulta piacevole da bere e ad ogni gusto si apprezza la nota erbacea molto particolare del luppolo e l’impatto leggero del caffé.

Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 24/6/2014. Pours a clear dark amber with a small head. The nose features a combo of fruity hops with some mild roasty notes. The flavour follows suit with some moderate roasty and chocolate malt set off against some sweet fruit and a firm, satisfying hop kick Has a medium body and fizzy carbonation. A very solid, enjoyable black IPA from a consistently good brewer.
