Beergaard (303) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2014
Nearly pitch black but with a redish tint - small longlasting White head. Very nice, sweet, floral and hoppy aroma - sweet grape fruit, tropical fruit, a somewhat spicy or herbal piny sensation and some malt. The taste is fruity, citric, malty and slightly alcoholic. Very nice.

Cocktus (36) - FINLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Appearance is black with tan brown head. Aroma is roasty, spruce, grass and alcohol. Body is medium and bittering is quite overwhelming but will settle out when the beer has warmed a little. Very nice beer indeed!

Moore schuimkraag, koolzuur is precies goed.. grondsmaak, geen uitgesproken ipa smaak, maar wel een bepaalde frisheid. Combi stout en ipa. Nasmaak vrij licht

Silvan7 (1098) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle @ home. birra marrone scuro, praticamente nera, opalescente. Schiuma beige fine e persistente. aroma molto intenso, agrumato, resinoso, e leggermente floreale. Una grande commistione di luppoli aromatici. Tostata, ricorda il cacao amaro e le nocciole.Gusto secco, molto amara, il chinhook è davvero marcato. tostatura (al gusto ricorda più il caffè del cacao amaro) e una leggera acidità. nessun fruttato al gusto. non molto calda, difficile percepire l’ ABV. Spigolosa, non molto carbonata decisamente corposa, quasi pastosa. Abbastanza equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica. Forse davvero troppo amara.

transformedgod (4) - POLAND - OCT 19, 2014 does not count
It’s like a blend of RIS and black IPA. Beautiful, long-lasting head. Aroma of dark malts, coffee, caramel, hops and a bit of alcohol. Medium bitterness, well balanced, rather dry. Taste corresponds aroma - coffee, dark malts, alcohol and pine-like bitterness. Great beer.

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!

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - OCT 14, 2014
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
