3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out of the bottle ( many, many thanks to beersiveknown for this nice one!) in a deep black colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of roasted hops and pine. Taste of fresh hops, dark grains, spruce, pine, citrus, spices and herbs. Easy and nice to drink with highly quaffable moments. Nice one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 30 08 12, 330ml Dark black in the glass, intense floral in the nose. The beer starts intense, floral, a bit viscous. Nice hints of floralness and fresh hops over a body that is more a stout than anything else. Rich and creamy, thick till the end. Floral and slightly roasted ending, smooth bittered.
I won’t call it a Black IPA - it is more a nice dry-hopped Imperial Stout. --> 11/10/10/10

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absolutely phenomenal BIPA. Pours a stout black with a nice tan head that last for a little while and leaving good lacing on the pint glass. Aroma of coffee beans, vanilla, grapefruit, citrus, some burnt toast. The striking part of this beer is the wonderful balance between that Porter-like roasted character and the American style hop notes. Delicious, much much better than the rating would suggest.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black pour with a smallish brown lid. Decent lacing. Malty, citrus, lemon, coriander, pepper, slight pine, catty. Chocolate, coffee with the hoppy bitterness providing the backbone. Some sweetness from the malts. Very good.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin 
Black, thin dark tan head, light lacing
Aroma - Herbal zest hop nose, slight rubber on the nose, cut vegetable stems, car tyre, not liking the hop aroma in this
Taste - Bitter dry zest, herbal hops, some dark bitter roast, plant material, dab of burnt rubber, odd, oh this isn’t working for me
Palate - Soft carb, thinnish body, bitter hop, dry. Finish - dry bitter herbal hop finish, rather astringent
Overall - Oh I’m the only one here not liking this - the hop profile didn’t agree with my palate at all

330ml bottle, present from a friend. Pours a dark brown with a patchy tan head. Burnt toast, citrus, marijuana aroma. Light woody sweetness, bitter and slightly smoked. Prickly dry and toasted finish. Tasty and complex but there’s something lacking.
