A lovely smooth black IPA. The first example I’ve tried in this style and it is very impressive. The aroma is of rich dark fruity notes, the taste is hop forward, caramel and again dark fruit. The mouth feel is velvety and medium to thick. It coats your mouth and the flavour lingers but suprisingly for a beer of this alcohol volume you get no burn at the back of your throat. A great beer to sip on.

Rune (8582) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
375ml bottle with a black cork, no.6122/8972, bought at Vinmonopolet Vika more than three years ago. Oily pour revealing a low, bubbly, off-white head. Clear rosewood coloured body. Smell of dried fruits like prunes and raisin with a touch of oak. Sweet taste of berries, dried fruit, oak and earth. Drying bittersweet ending with warming alcohol. Sherry impression. Full bodied. Slow sipper that gets a tad too sweet in the long run (shared with Finn, Tromsø 10.12.2014).

Flaske # 6122/89730 375ml. Spandert av og delt med Rune på Nerstranda 10 Des. 14. Tungåpnet! Svakt skudd. Ultradyprød/amber. Bobler i glasset. Veldig lavt skum. Rik plommearoma. Preg av sherry. Smaken likeså. Søt frukt. Et skikkelig koseøl.

MrHangover (2865) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost beer without any head on top. Aroma of alcohol, roast, chocolate and toffee. Flavor is very sweet, also some light bitterness detected in the back. The alcohol is quite overpowering and warming. Never thought aging a black IPA would work out so nice. Low carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Marheb (2481) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Des dattes, raisins secs, cassonade et chocolat blanc réunis dans le même liquide pour se faire piéger par des houblons terreux et herbacés à la vigueur lointaine. définitivement pas ce qu’elle était mais franchement intéressante quand même.

elbernays (653) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 375ml Bottle at home from drinkstore. Pours oily black with no head. Nose is liquorice, alcohol, coffee vanilla, grass. Flavour is toasted malts, earth, liquorice, milk. Smooth with no carbonation and a warm finish. It?s got a light feel for the abv which is odd. The abv is managed well. Definitely a sipping beer.

VictorStr (1480) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Mycket söts inslag i aromen, torkad frukt. Rätt lugn och balanserad i kropp och smak.

freretoc (904) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl numérotée #3996, couleur très foncée aucune mousse, aucune effervescence, au nez attaque sur le pruneau confit, et en bouche grosse attaque sur les noix et l’amande final sur l’amertume très intense pas du tut floral, dommage pour cette fin de bouche qui casse le début très prometteur.

Bue en bouteille de 375ml. Couleur marron foncée pas très jolie. Nez caramel café. Note de noix discrète. Finale amère.

Not overly typical black IPA but I certainly enjoyed it. Oily black with a small tan head. Great smell. Chocolate, earth, malts, some citrus hops, coconut, alcohol is there but not aggressive. Good beer.
