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 (1115) - 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 (621) - 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.

marcus (6339) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 17, 2013
Intensiv hopfiger Antrunk, zu gleichem Maße aber auch malzig mit deutlichen Schokoladennoten. Wenig fruchtig, die starke Malzigkeit wird durch den Hopfen ergänzt. Intensiv, gut! 11/13/12/11/10/12

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle 0,5l Black color, against the light dark brown. Wonderfull creamy and huge, rocky foam. Aroma is just perfect!!!. So complex and so intensive. Masterpiece. Citrus, tropical fruits, pines, oranges, resins, in the background chocolate. Taste: amazing balance between bitterness and some sweetness. Here we have some citrus, pines, resins, oranges, tropical fruits, grapefruits, citrus pulp - perfectly mixed with dark chocolate, roasty malts. Very refreshing and addictive taste. Long warming finish, alcohol imperceptible. Medium body, creamy texture with low carbonation. Fabulous and Fantastic beer!!! One of the greatest that I ever tasted.

Sevenlee (1264) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2013
Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, coffee, chocolate, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is somewhat sweet and roasty leading to a roasty and bitter finish. Great stuff.

nilsas (1216) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
God duft av citrus og litt sjokolade. Lite skum, litt langs kant. Dyp sort farge. Fin smak av citrus frukter med en liten smak av sjokolade.

mzaar (1522) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2013
Flaska från Rosses i Torrades, Barcelona. Så här, just så här vill jag ha min BIPA. Tropiska frukter och lakrits i doften. Går att sitta länge och bara inandas. I smaken hittas citron, grape, soja, lakrits samt en nötig ton. Fyllig kropp, len smak. Riktigt, riktigt bra!

Sigmund (4948) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Lovely aroma of citrussy hops, on a background of moderately roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate. The medium dry flavour has again citrussy hops, blended with distinct roasted malts, notes of strong coffee, dark bitter chocolate and resin. The contradictory "Black IPA" style is beginning to grow on me, and this one is a fine specimen.
