CarlJonas (203) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Very dark brown. Small head. Honey, pine resin, fudge in the aroma. Slightly roasted flavour, sweet and bitter. More honey and some chocolate. Rich and smooth mouthfeel. Bit old now but still very tasty.

McNeillR (974) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Hell fire black auburn hinge, slight head. Composting dry nose, sumptuous. Taught, zipwire bitterness throughout even three years on. Rounded malt and peppery tinge. Thin but arching tang to the finish.Big rusty amber body with boozy listless head. Coppery nose, firey. Dense oily, oxidsed boozeage slips away to floral rustiness. Crystalled throughout, keeping it steely and narrow. Terse finish, mapely

Bottle, Brewdog Garvie Gauntlet

Kuulokekoira (1) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2013 does not count
Bottle #3017, bottled on 16.05.2011. Feels more like imperial stout than black ipa. No carbonation whatsoever, pours without a foam. Aroma has some fruitiness to it, taste comes with some sweet ligorice, roasted malts and hints of coffee. Palate is nice and deep but suffers from lack of hops. Also some head would have been nice. Quite nice, not mind blowing.

Juseq (158) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has chocolate and coffee. Flavor has salty licorice with chocolate and cocoa. Not that surprising after maturing. Aftertaste and flavor has some medicine.

beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled, touch sensations on the lips, tongue y must drink it!

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Black body, no head. Aroma has roasted veggies, some acidic coffee, something is off - bit lactic, maybe fermentation thing, but something is not quite right in the aroma. Dissolvent. Flavour has the same issue with veggies, there’s just something wrong. The black IPA is not correct, poor imp. stout at best. There is also some alcohol and some cought medicine. Really not just my thing.

rosenbergh (6077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2013
375 ml bottle. 11.2%. #3484/8973. Bottled on 16/05/11. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Black colour with no head. The aroma is imperial stout. But not a good one. Roasted malt, ash and darkness in the aroma. The flavour is liquorice, roasted malt, some bitterness, soy sauce and alcohol. Watery. If this is supposed to be Black IPA it’s probably the worst one I’ve tasted. If this was just another Imperial Stout it’s just plain lousy. Bad bad bad.
