One of the best black IPAs I’ve ever tried. Nice balance between hops and malts, great aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, coffee and chocolate, marvelous taste of hops and malts. Great one!

Warka 19.12.2013. Kolor nieprzejrzyscie czarny. Piana brunatna, bardzo wysoka, bardzo powoli opada pozostawiajac spory lejsing. W aromacie przypomina Imperatora Baltyckiego, intensywna czekolada, kawa, ananas, marakuja, sliwki w czekoladzie, minimalna nuta szlachetnego alkoholu. W smaku dominuja owoce tropikalne i sliwki w czekoladzie, dalej lekka nuta palona, lekka kwasnosc i lekki, szczypiacy alkohol. W odczuciu gladkie, lekko oleiste, wysycenie niskie. Goryczka srednio-niska, ziolowo-ziemista, z lekkim musnieciem zywicy i grejpfruta.

Very good black IPA, but too soft and a little bit more bitterness would be very appricated

oh6gdx (22854) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Bottled (from biernavigatie). Pitch black colour, big brown head. Aroma is mild roasted malts, some sweet fruity and floral notes along with some wooden and resiny notes. Flavour is liquorice, mild toasted notes and also has a nice fruity and floral notes as well. Quite pleasantly balanced, the alcohol also gives a slight sweetness to it.

adasko (1037) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Amazing strawberry aroma with a very very delicate coffee and chocolate notes and a flat malty background. It looks perfect. Dark, black, non-transparent, with beautiful and quite steady beige head which leaves nice lacing. Mouth feeling is so good. It’s so smooth, and so thick. Taste is dominated mostly by bitterness which also leaves long aftertaste. There is no place for sweetness in it. The middle of the taste is quite malty. You can feel the dark, tanned malts. Feels even a bit like dry stout for the moment.

Bottle from Beer Hawk. A black coloured pour with a healthy beige head on top. Roasty, malty, fruity, slightly smokey aroma. Tastes roasty, bitter, coffee, pine and a little chocolate. Not what I would call a typical black IPA but this was still bloody good stuff. More please.
