From a bottle. Damn this is good stuff, the bitterness of the hops is subtle and balanced with the smoothness of the malt, rich roasted flavours of coffee kick in at the end. Good stuff, very good stuff.

Hop forward beer with a slight coffe chocolate finish. So crushable. Smells chocolates. Just like all other brew dog beers, this one does no disappoint Malaclypse in coor with a tan head. Had at revolution.

Bottle from Tesco. Pours a jet black with a nice tan head which lasts. Incredible mix of aromas. Fruity mangos and citrus along with pine,coffee and chocolate. Intense hoppiness with well balanced flavours of fruity chocolate and coffee hints. Very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 27/7/2014 (shared with Butz). Pours a deep brown with the barest of heads. Has a pleasant light aroma of fruity hops with some roasty notes in the background. The flavour features toasty malt and lots of sweet citrus and stone fruit. The bitterness is quite firm and balances the sweetness out nicely. Has a fairly creamy palate and average carbonation. This is a very nice black IPA. It has a bit of Feralís brilliant Barrique Okarma to it, though itís not quite as good.

Tropical hops and roast malt aroma. Dark cloudy brown with adequate off white foam. Coffee and chocolate malt flavors but lacking complexity. Nice bitter dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. About 1 month from bottling. Pours pitch black with a nice frothy head that fades very slowly and leaves some webbing. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate, roast, burnt toast, and pine. Tastes pretty roasty with a moderate pine hop taste. Subtle chocolate and dark bread as well. No sweetness at all really. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little chalky. Medium to thick body. A decent Black IPA but Iíve had many better.

Bottle shared by Todd on man night. Aroma of fudge, pine resin, and a decent dark citrus malt. Pours black with small to medium tan head. Taste is roasty chocolate cake, pine, grapefruit, and a mocha finish. Very nice black IPA. Not the hoppiest Iíve had but delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 330mL bottle [batch 109; best before 16/04/15]. Near black with tan head. Aroma has a balance of citrus hops, roast malt, caramel malt, and chocolate harmoniously competing without outshining each other. Taste has a similar balance wherein each flavour can be individually tasted with just a mildly dry finish. Yet, because nothing is really dominant, it lacks the real punch that would lead to a knock out.
