Very good imperial black ipa. First smell is balanced roasted malts and flowery goodness. The taste is very good in balance with the sweetness and the bitterness. Very well black ipa! Drink it :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Bootlegger007 (17) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
Strong mix of aromas, citrus and tropical fruits with the IPA mixed with the burnt grains and licorice dark ale, pours black and murky (I don’t like to waste the sediment) with a small but lasting head, it was a full bodied IPA with the advantage of dark ale burnt bitter finish.

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, almost black with a beige head. Nice aroma with citric fruit, pine and some roasted malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, some pine, dark malt, light roasted and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite nice and smooth, but a bit on the safer side and actually rather standard black IPA.
