Got just a little head, not too big. Immediately the aroma reminded me of the solero icecream i used to love as a kid. Very fruity smell. The taste was not what i expected. First off, you get an big fruity burst, but as the beer crossed the back of your tongue, the bitter hoppy taste blows the fruity taste away. The aftertaste is really bitter, little bit sour. Again, the aroma is amazing, but the taste of the beer itself was a little bit dissapointing. Still, nice appearance, and a fine IPA.

__Rb81 (129) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste of roasted malts, licorice, chocolate, and bitter hops. Apart from the aroma, a bit disappointing.

Nose: exactly what you expect from the name. Taste: good black ops, roasted malt, bitter, hops.

Bottiglia 33cl bevuta a casa. Scura con schiuma persistente. Bel corpo rotondo, Più IPA che black... Finale amaro.

donker bruin tot zwart met minimale witte kraag aroma van laurier, drop, hop, den en grapefruit smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, sterke smaken, licht fruitig, redelijk moutig, redelijk tot sterk gekruid oa zoethout, maar komt ook door de stevige hoppigheid, medium body, glad in de mond, hoge co2, aardige BIPA maar als ik deze tegen andere BIPA’s vergelijk dan is deze enigszins ééntonig

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Spicy hops and roasted malts lead to a very fruity second half before resinous hops take control of the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the darkness.
-Carbonation is smooth, not forced.
-The roastiness is reminiscent of charred bread at times.
-A touch of alcohol is felt in the end.
-This is rather drinkable for 8%.
-Malt sugars contribute mild caramel and molasses.
-This glass begs for a steak.

Bottle.

Majek (303) - Ząbki, POLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Hazy, brown colour with medium and moderate stable beige head. Lots of quite big flecks in bottle (yeast?). Faint aroma of grassy bitterness and some roasted malts. Nose is rather disappointing. Taste is balanced with caramel, licorice and medium bitterness on the finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Average Black IPA.

Mejs (86) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Black, with nice big head. Aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit and black malts. To this point it was great, but then it got worse. Too much alcohol, combined with hoppiness and roastiness gave some bitter combined with salty taste. Had to fight myself to drink all of it. Too strong for a good BIPA, and not enough complex for a good stout.

edsspoon (303) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Pours black with a big, off-white, sustainable head. Aroma of orange, yeasty malt and some alcohol. Has a really strong hoppiness and bitterness, with a bit of alcoholic taste, citrus notes and roasted malt. Super good beer.

Bamsen78 (2888) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle @ Ministerstwo Browaru Pub, Poznań. Pours cloudy dark copper brown with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of yeast and malt. Intense bitter, hoppy flavour, with citric and grassy notes. Lingering, bitter and dry aftertaste. Nice.
