3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large light beige head, which lasts very well and leaves very good lacing. The aroma has Vienna coffee and mild dark chocolate malt, blended with grapefruit, herbal and pine needle hops. Strong citrus hops notes of grapefruit and lime up front are joined by some pine. The lime lingers into the mid-palate, where it is joined by bitter cocoa and smoother milk chocolate malt notes. Lime, lemon and a kick of pine resin hops come through in the finish. This is a very enjoyable black IPA indeed.

Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Bière noire avec belle mousse beige. Très fruité au nez elle est houblonné à souhait. Belle découverte du style Black IPA. Bonne dégustation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle from Liberty Wine Merchants on The Drive in Vancouver. A very dark beer, with about the same opacity as very strong coffee, and low carbonation. The nose is of heavily roasted malted barley. The flavor is similar to the nose - no fruit or hop detected. The flavor suggests coffee and chocolate, but I suspect the recipe contains neither. The body is medium. The finish is slightly sweet. 3.8

Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, very dark red to black with a beige head. Slightly roasty, fruity and resiny aroma of tropical fruits, dark chocolate and pine. Sweetish, roasty and fruity taste of dark chocolate, some coffee, tropical fruits and some pine, followed by a medium long, roasty-bitter, resiny finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!

330ml bottle. Pours a clear black with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that leaves plenty of lace. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, grapefruit and pine. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, citrus, grass and pine with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice, has some complexity to it.

A fantastic Beer from those odd people of Brewdog.
A beer that you don’t neck it down its a one that you savor taking a sip now and then.
The flavour has a lasting taste..

Black with a 1.5" head. Aroma is all pine hops like a big, black IPA. very smooth palate. Little to no roasted malt Character. Just enough to let you know it’s not an AIPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Je pensais avoir à faire à une stout, mais pas du tout. Robe noire foncée, mousse beige abondante, mais arômes de houblon et en bouche, amertume accompagnée de la fraîcheur du pamplemousse plutôt que l’âcreté de la torréfaction. Surprenant et plutôt bon, mais finalement pas gustativement différent d’une IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
ASPETTO: marrone scurissimo con riflessi granata, ma praticamente appare come nero impenetrabile. Schiuma marroncina, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA: floreale, biscottato, tostato, molto gradevole. AROMA: all’attacco è dolce, biscottata, leggermente caramellata e tostata. Vira poi in un amaro mai invadente e molto gradevole. La birra scivola bene sulla lingua. Veramente ben fatta, si fa ricordare!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown to black, tan diminishing head. Heavily hopped, dominating hops aroma. Flavors of alcohol, coffee, some dryness in the beginning, bitter. Full body, complex and challenging beer. Interesting, but not among the best.
