Intense aroma of pine, fruits, raisins, hints of salt. Pours pitch black with beautiful big tan head. The head stays for a long time. Nice lacing also. Taste: raisins, coffee, roasted malts, piney, grapefruit. The bitterness gets more intense in the finish. No noticeable alcohol. Medium carbonation. Overall: really great looking and smelling beer.

mR_fr0g (2387) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s Bush opening night. I’m not sure this is the beer I asked for but here goes. Aroma is roast and light tart earthy mushroom. Opaque black pour with a persistent light tan head. Flavour is mineral, smooth roast coffee and earthy hop. Light sour raspberry in the finish. Body is a touch light.

Bottled 500ml @Beer Hunters
Dark brown, almost opaque color, small steady beige head. Hoppy nose with hints of licorice. Medium-bodied. Sweetish malty backbone, fruity hoppyness and salty licorice. Quite sweet black IPA. American style, not British of course.

GBZ59 (1061) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - NOV 2, 2013
Botella de 330ml. Vaso de ˝ pt. Saboreada en L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Color negro intenso con tintes ámbar muy oscuros a contraluz. Espuma color beige que crea una bonita, copiosa y persistente capa. Aromas intensos de chocolate, notes lupulizadas, cítricos y leve afrutado. La entrada es cremosa y torrefacta que precede a un amargor floral. Cuerpo medio/pleno y carbonatación moderada/suave. Textura viscosa en un paladar aterciopelado y picante. Toques de torrefacto y resinas permanecen en el prolongado y amargo final. Frutos oscuros en el retrogusto. Sin duda, una de las mejores American Black que nunca haya probado !! 330ml bottle. ˝ pt glass. Enjoyed @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Pure black color & very dark amber tints to the light. Beige foam, nice, copious & lasting crown. Intense chocolate aroma, hoppy notes, citrics & slight fruity to the nose. Enters creamy & roasted then floral bitterness is felt. Medium to full body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Viscous texture. Velvet & spicy palate. Touches of coffee & resins in the middle linger into a long bitter finish. Dark fruits on the aftertaste. One of the best American Black I´ve ever tasted!!

SuBarbare (4) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2013 does not count
Bottle with Sir__V @ his Home Black opaque color, a thin ligh brown foam. No carbonization. The smell is a lot of caramel flavor, roasted malt. At first taste, you have a lot of roasted coffee taste in mouth. After taste is hoppy that let you a nice wet bitterness

Garrold (1070) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from Beer Parlour, Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Black, with a tan coloured, thin, tight, white head. A handsome beer. Aroma is the whole works. Roasted malt with a light smokiness. Big grapefruit hoppiness too. It’s all a bit odd really, until you taste it and it all comes together. Very bitter, long roasty finish.

ACD (617) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 20, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller SF (a pleasant surprise!). Murky brown/black. Big piney hops on the nose, plenty of dank grapefruity stuff, and a touch of sweet chocolate and light roast coffee. Big juicy hop hit upon tasting: plenty of pine and citrus fruit. Slightly ashy dark maltiness, with coffee, chocolate and a touch of treacle coming in there. Big piney hop bitterness lingers. Excellent.
