MarcoDL (2515) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Black pour. Aroma is quite strong, with lots of roasted malt and some brett. Taste is first of a normal stout, with roasted malt, cream and cacao. Finish has a little bretty sourness, tiny touch of horseblanket. Not very hoppy, I would call this a brett stout, not an IPA.

Malt and brett aroma. High on carbo. Taste like real hoppy stout with some sour at the end.

Bottle. This is one of the most interesting brews I have tried in some time. Funky, fresh, and light.

Ron (2785) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2014
From Cask at The Old Toad. Dark brown color with a small, light tan head. Aroma has toasted malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel malts. Light hints of brett. Citrus, grapefruits and pines hops. Taste is light sweet. Medium body, creamy texture. Finishes bitter and roasted with herbal hops.

manuelMTL (206) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Pour is black with a frothy brownish head. Lots of spicy Brett aromas with a bit of smoke and floral hops. Wild yeast, leather and barnyard notes upfront followed by loads of roasted malts and a long medium pine bitterness. Medium carbonation. Rather unusual black IPA that combines the characteristic Brettanomyces flavors with lots of roastiness and hoppiness.

superspak (3006) - Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, citrus rind, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, floral, grass, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy brett, and dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, floral, grass, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of roast/pine/citrus rind bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, citrus rind, pine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, light char, pepper, light funk, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy brett, and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy/sticky, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Black IPA style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity/spicy Brett, and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Cybercat (3679) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours opaque coffee brown with a fairly thick tan head that leaves some good lacing. Roast malt aroma has a strong overtone of woody hops and hay, plus a hint of cinnamon. Bold flavor has roast malt, hoppy, smoky, earthy, hay, and subtle molasses and miso notes - but where did that cinnamon go? Firm texture has a fair amount of fizz, and leaves a hoppy and roast malt finish that has hints of coffee, miso and yeast. Let this one seduce you.

unclemattie (4304) - Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2014
22oz bottle. Very dark brown. Smells of cocoa powder. Flavor is full Brettanomyces. Finishes with a slow funk that lingers along with a gentle abundance of hops. (4237)
