rosenbergh (6110) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2012
500 ml bottle. Black Door, Helsinki, Finland. Dark brown almost black colour with small tan head. Absolutely delicious aroma with piney and fruity hops, moderate bitterness, mild roasted malt, liquorice and dryness. Flavour is more roasted malt, dry liquorice, sweet sugary notes, some balancing hops, mild bitterness and anise. Aroma is more IPA and flavour more Stout/Porter. Yummy! Very very tasty. More of this please! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a citrus and treacle aroma. There is a hearty chocolate malt flavor with dome dark molasses and a hefty dose of hop bitterness.

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
On gravity at the Factoberfest, Tobacco Factory, Bristol September 2012. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Big aroma of citrus fruits, grassy hops, pine and a touch of sweetness. Flavour had plenty of dark fruits and tangerines, a hint of fruit cake and a dry, resinous finish. Excellent.

Svesse (5908) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 20 Feb 2014) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of pine needles, coffee, dark chocolate, black rye bread and hints of mint. Malty, roasted, hoppy taste with coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles, grapefruit, black rye bread and a generous piney, citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Very tasty and well made black IPA. Very nice.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a large mostly-lasting rocky tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma has a surprising, in a good way, amount of hops along with malt and some coffee -- mostly just hops though. (Surprising because I didn’t realize this was a Black IPA) Flavour is also really hoppy along with some roasted malt, coffee and a long moderate hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Really good, I need to get more.

Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2012
Cask at CBC. It pours cloudy dark brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is charcoal, treacle, varnish, cola and liquorice. The taste is charcoal, roasted malt, sweet caramel, tar, treacle, smoke, wood, liquorice, cocoa powder and a touch of spice, with a long dry-dry roasted finish. Medium-full body and soft carbonation. A tasty black IPA.

lusikka (5376) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Praha, Tampere.
Pours a black colour with an off-white head. Aroma of lovely floral hops, citrus and some maltiness. Flavour of roasted malts, strong floral hops, citrus, mandarin orange and exotic fruitiness. Medium bodied, silky smooth mouthfeel and a smooth, roasty and nicely bitter finish. Really well balanced. Delicious.

mcberko (5375) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
500mL bottle at Euston Tap, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of dry toasted malts, some floral hops, and very dry notes. Flavour brings out very dry roasted / toasted malts, pungent piney hops, and dry bread. Very dry body, full of toasted malt and dry piney hops. Excellent black IPA - one of the best British beers out there.
