11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops plus a lot of roasted and chocolate malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A good black IPA.

Poured from a bottle courtesy of my Summer Secret Santa. Aroma is moderately malty with a lot of toasted bread and cracker with lighter caramel and toffee. Some medium light raisin notes. Moderately strong hop aromas with a lot of grapefruit and woodsy, resin notes. A hint of alcohol. Pours a murky, dark brown with a touch of a red hue and a medium large, thick, dark tan head. Moderate lacing with medium length legs. Flavor is slightly sweet with a bit more sweetness mid palate. Moderate toasted bread and cracker malt notes with lighter caramel and raisin. Medium high to high bitterness with a bit of alcohol spice. Moderate hop notes, mostly woody but also some light grapefruit and pine resin. A bit of a floral character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent IPA though I don’t think it is really a black IPA so much as a brown one. Hops are very European, but I think that works with the darker malt notes.

hrabren (248) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2015
0.33 bottle from Pivoljub, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Pitch black with ruby tint, strong beige head, leaving lacing. Blueberry yoghurt, tobacco, roast and soy sauce. Predominantly fruity, roasty background. Strong bitter kick, heavily hopped, develops a malty and roasty taste, quite sweet, with an aromatic finish. Heavy and serious. No joke, great IBLA.

Pours black opaque colour with tiny creamy light brown head, which quickly disappeared. Visually soft carbonation. Aroma wthout trace of an alcohol. Prevails malty notes of caramel, coffee, cacao. Also are evident hop esters: dark fruits, plums, strawberry etc. Flavour: Alchol note is noticable, but it is not too strong. Hop note esters of raisins, little grape, lemon, grapefruit, plums, you can also detect some herbal - floral notes of menthol, sage...Hop notes are so strong, that you hardly detect some malt note: but still you can detect malt sweetness of caramel, cacao and barley malt. Malt swetness is medium, hop bitterness is very high. Finish is long lasting bitter and dry.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 21B - Black IPA). Bottle 33 cl - Batch B. AROMA: hop aroma predominant with a floral, resinous and mango aromas. very faint toasty notes with a toffee character. APPEARANCE: dark ambar color and almost translucent. style average ivory head with average retention. TASTE: a combination of hop flavours with mango and piny notes, and a smooth and faint roasted malt flavour (some toffee). High bitterness with an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with style average carbonation. OVERALL: a nice black IPA more on the caramelly / toffee side than roasted malts.

rayaron (779) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle thanks to Maakun. Deep black with big brownish head. The aroma is piney with notes of jojoba, milk chocolate and mild roasted malt, faint notes of ash. The flavor has nice hoppy bitterness, notes of herbs, jojoba, roasted malt and chocolate, lingering bitterness. Soft carbonation, creamy texture, medium to full-bodied. Very good, really enjoyed it.

Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Tropical fruits, pine, resin, roast, citrus. Light sweet, heavy bitter, average carbonation, medium body. Lasting bitter roast finish. An india black ale that’s more an (d)ipa than most. Very good, not very complex.

Daanminator (308) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
Mooi zwart bier. Schuimkraag is beetje gebroken wit. Bier is bitter in de nasmaak. Eerste tonen zijn bitter/peperig. Smaak blijft erg lang hangen en overheerst heel erg wat niet echt prettig is.
