Draft @ Hoppy Days. Pours a black beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is slightly hoppy, licorice, molasses. Flavor is very sweet, loads of licorice again with a slight bitter touch in the back. Very nice beer.

On tap at Hoppy Days. Murky brown black pour with thin off white head. Aroma is malty, tons of chocolate, light piney notes, woody hop. Taste is bitter nice malt sweetness, again tons of chocolate, more like a slightly off balance porter than a BIPA to me but anyhow. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Good.

330 ml bottle at Birra+. Dark copper, pretty hazy, with a big, creamy and persistent light beige head. Good lacing. Pretty strange name thoug for a beer nowhere near as black. Nice toasted and caramel forward nose. Quite hoppy as well (esp. citrus). Lovely herbal and resinous bitterness in the mouth. Rather juicy and properly dry. Not much dark/smoky/roasted component to speak of, just some wild type of berries notes. Mild sugary sweetness in the aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Nice, but very different, imho, from a "typical" BIPA.

Bottle share for Colin’s 40th. Thanks to Tommy. Mahogany brown small cream head. Aroma is Roasty, piney needle, orange. Flavour is hint of smoke, nutty toast and pine, orange peel hop. Palate is semi sweet, semi sweet, highish carb. Not bad.

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tommy M. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet chocolate, earth, candied citrus, orange, dirt and cake. The taste is bitter-sweet, stewed citrus, earth, dirt, cocoa, caramel, toffee, fruit cake, pepper, orange rind and light astringency with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Solid cda.

zztopt5 (11) - fonzaso, ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
Profumo piacevole. Si nota la tostatura forse in maniera troppo forte per una ipa è più da stout. Retrogusto non è abbastanza persistente. Nell’insieme una discreta birra.

Black ipa decente, non troppo amara ma ben bilanciata tra tostatura e luppolatura. Buona!

Flaska. Svart öl med smutsvitt skum. Dofter av citrus, rostad malt och kakao. Smakinslag av kaffe, mörk choklad, rostad malt och grapefrukt. Beskan smyger på i eftersmaken. Fyllig kropp. En trevlig BIPA.
