yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle at HaandFestival 2012. Looking quite nice in the glass, with its dark brown, almost black body and moderately sized beige head. The aroma is lightly roasted, with some dried fruits and a sort of smoked mackerel touch. There are hops too, but not enough I think. That goes for the flavor too, the lack of hops I mean, with some citrus peel and bitterness, but it’s mostly on the malty side, with dried fruits and some roasted malts. A little sweetness too. Full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, finishing with a nice blend of roasted malts and bitterness. A slightly weird one, not the typical Black IPA, but sure drinkable. 120504

Bottle 33 cl. Black with a nice foamy beige head. Aroma of tar, citrus and fresh hops. Very nice rich taste which compliments the aroma. Smooth and lengthy finish.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/2015. Pours hazy very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Good amount of pine/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and roasted malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Black IPA. All around good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and roasted malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

kaser (2625) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Black pour from bottle at club wakonda. Black with bubbly small off white head. Rotten graham cracker malty and oily aroma. I hope I have an old or battered one. The ratings made thirsty for this and yet I sit here in horror each sip.

Shark_Pants (168) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2014
Pours almost pitch black with a 2 finger beige head. Aromas of grapefruit and heavy malts with some dark chocolate. Tastes is as the smell suggests, with a lingering bitterness at the back end. Medium bodied. Black IPAs aren?t normally my thing but this isn?t too bad.

Aroma: Toffee, Caramel, Mango Appearance: Black with ruby edges. Medium off-white head. Taste: Alcohol, slight astringency, slight sourness. Palate: Medium body, slightly creamy texture, soft carbonation and a hot, bitter finish. Overall: Smells lovely, taste doesn’t match; overpowered and under flavoured.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A very dark brown-black beer with tart red fruit and citrus flavours, roasted coffee notes followed by a creamy pine finish. Excellent!

Sjohnh (148) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Dark coca cola coloured with a hint of red coming through when poured, settling down to a hazy dark brown. Big cappuccino coloured head, medium bodied, not too much carbonation. Aroma is a really good blend of fruity hops. Once in the mouth, it’s sweet but the subtlety of the fruit flavours is somewhat buried beneath the bitterness that follows.
