Svart hvor noe lys slipper gjennom i kantene. Frukt, Bęr og lakris i duften. Sųt lakris, grapefrukt og overmodne rųde Bęr i smaken. God bitterhet og tykk munnfųlelse.

Wow. First smell is lemon, apricot, peach and raspberry. The promise of hops comes back on the first sip. Hoppy fruits all over but then there's also light roasted malts and sweet fruits. Flavors shift from light acidic to light sweet with bitterness present all the time. None of the flavors is overpowering, balance is good. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. I love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rikstar (2243) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 0,33l fles gedeeld met bryan, zwart met een crčme kraag. Geur is mooie balans van de mouten, cacao chocolade en karamel. Hop blijft iets op de achtergrond. Smaak gaat verder in dezelfde lijn maar richting de afdronk komt er iets herbal hop bij. mooi romig mondgevoel met een volle droppige afdronk. Real nice

Pours pitch black, wounderful aroma of citrus, orange, apricot, licorice and cedar. Taste is smooth, some chocolate, coffee, ends with a long hoppy bitterness. Overall a really well brewed black IPA.

Biroholik (870) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Kolor : Czarny z rubinowymi refleksami . Nieklarowny.
Piana: Bardzo ładna. Drobno oczkowa. Trwała , beżowa. Długo się utrzymuje. Fajnie brudzi teku.
Zapach : Imperium kontratakuje! Atak jest potężny. Zewsząd atakują cytrusowe i tropikalne aromaty. Starcie mango , ananasa i grejpfruta . Tuż za nimi w szeregu maszerują owoce leśne : borówki i jerzyny oraz soczyste maliny. W drugiej lini frontu nadchodzą żywiczne nutki które uderzają swoimi sosnowymi igiełkami niczym ostrymi bagnetami. Nos powoli poddaje się i ulega ich woni.
Smak: Pełny. Wyraźny. Szereg owocowych nut. Tropiki i cytrusy uzbrojone w konkretną , nieściągającą goryczkę. Delikatny smak palonych słodów. Idealny balans!
Wysycenie : Średnio-niskie.
Podsumowanie: Piwo jest kompleksowe. Pełnia smaków i aromatów chmielowych. Goryczka świetnie zbalansowana. Słodowa baza wyraźna i świeża. Alkohol jest perfekcyjnie ukryty. Buxton po raz kolejny udowania jest kultowym angielskim browarem, który trzyma stały poziom swoich piw . Czapki z głów! Nie ma co dodawać - trzeba dopić do końca i oblizać się po ostatniej kropelce ;p

Flanfl (620) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2015
Black body, big fluffy head. Strong citrusy aroma, pine and exotic fruits, light toasted malt notes. Flavours citrus, pine, exotic fruits, caramel, all blending amorgniously. Whao. Long bitter fresh finish that ends up dry. Great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Black with some brown shining through near some light and a lasting creamy head. Smells of fresh tropical fruit and molasses with a hint of chocolate. Tastes great. This is far closer to an IPA with hints of dark malt than any sort of balance. yet the bitterness isn’t overpowering and each sip feels new. Tastes of tropical fruit with a hint of a mild in the back. Nice.

From a bottle. The cocoa after-taste once the hop bitterness dies back is delicious. Great stuff.
