Pours black with a rapidly dissipating off white head. Nice hoppy aromas, herbs, citrus. In the mouth comes the dark malt, some coffee, licorice, some smoke, and more great hops. Nice texture and decent concentration. A nice beer from Brewdog which gives the best of two worlds - the hoppy and the dark.

Very drinkable pitch black ale with quite a long and bitter finish with a little fizz. I picked some caramel and roast + floral. Beige minimal top and oily texture.. for me one of the best ever really!

33cl bottle at home. Pours black with off white head. Aroma is peach, tropical fruits and plenty of it. Flavour is sweet tropical fruit, bit of a earthy, creamy stout feel in the background. It’s light bodied with a slick, resin mouth feel. Alcohol really well integrated and full flavour. This is a very enjoyable beer.

Great black colour, with thin tan head. The aroma is pure west coast ipa, but the malt gives an initial creaminess and complexity to the flavour. Great beer.

Great CDA. Perfectly balanced -- a bit of chocolate and roasty at the beginning with fresh, citrus strike of hops in the end. Smooth, full bodied.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pitch black body, with a very light brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving a fair lace. Aroma of roasted malts, some caramel. Nice medium bitter taste, faint notes of coffee and chocolate. Average carbonation, medium boided, oily texture. Nice, but nothing to get crazy about.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours cola colored with a small off-white/gray head leaving some streaks of lace. Aroma has rich roasty malts, grapefruit and pine, and some cocoa. Later down in the glass, some licorice joins in. Taste is of fruity sweetness, bakers chocolate, light pine, roast, and caramel. Medium bodied and lightly syrupy, with fruit and some alcohol. Finishes more to the bitter side of bittersweet, despite the body seeming more sweet. Not a bad brew - lotta flavor and presence - but seemed to be trying to do to much, stopping it from being top notch.

Good solid black IPA. Seems very well balance with plenty of coffee and light chocolate early. Hops kick in late but never even remotely gets aggressive. Nice drinking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with brown edges with a fluffy cocoa brown head that settles to a ring and leaves some delicate spotty lace. Nose involves some dark yet not imposing roastiness, dank tropical hops, some chocolate chip cookie, floral lilac-y fragrance, some zesty spice. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, oily and slick, creamy, softer carb, with a toasty dark chocolaty drying finish. Very damn nice.
