Bottle. Well bottled and pleasant but a bit too bitter for my taste. If it wasn’t I would probably have scored it higher. I am still struggling with the concept of a black IPA-the key to this confusion is the P for pale. Still quite a nice beer though.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Hand pulled at the Southampton Arms, London. Black, with tight, thick, cream head. Smells extremely enticing. Smooth hoppy flavour. Warming finish. Very fruity. Juicy. Good bitter finish. Love it.

Idiosynkrasie (3796) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Fruity and bitter hop aroma has notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, citrus, cautious hints of dark chocolate. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, slightly fruity; cautious dry, roasty dark malty undertones; in the disappointing finish unpleasantly flat bitter.

dEnk (3795) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2012
Draft @ acbf. Aroma is roasty malt, some coffee, english hops. Flavour is a nice combo between hops and roast. Good black ipa.

tiong (3746) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Pours dark brown, almost black with a large foamy head. Aroma of roasty malts, exotic fruits and hints of citrus. Taste is smooth, and quite a nice mix of roastiness and exotic fruitness with a touch of salty licorice and grassy hops. Finish is dry and fruity with lots of roastiness and salty licorice. Quite nice, although a tad too salty and roasty black IPA.

Hermod (3163) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Poured dark dark brown with a dense, huge white head. Aroma has loads of tropical fruitiness, floral hoppy. Very inviting. Roasted malt more in the back. Flavor has roastedness, grapefruit, salt and chocolate notes.Heavy bitter, dry finish. This is a black IPA for sure, good balance, very tasty.
