A amazing Black IPA, This oaked black IPA is complex with a huge layering of different flavours and aromatics as the temperature and your pallet adjusts. dark in colour, Hoppy citrusy aroma that changes into vanilla as the beer warms. A outstanding beer and unlike any other brewed in Australia

Pitch black poor with a superb tan head. Big aroma of fruit and pine. Taste is bitter and smooth with a nice amount of sweetness to keep the dark malts from being to bitter and astringent. Well brewed black ipa maybe even the best I’ve had so far. Will be ordering again!

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours black with a large tan head. Nose shows tropical fruit, soft roasted malt, bready noets and very soft oak. The roast plays a more dominant role as a flavour, with cocoa and nutty notes. Again, the oak is very soft. some lychee, pine and papaya are present too. Pretty awesome stuff. Carbonation is perhaps just a little high.

Dark colour with white head. Aroma is oak and hops. A lot going on with this beer. Initial notes of vanilla and blackcurrant, oak, dark malts and then the hops. Great beer!

Maris (1011) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 11/5/2014. Pours a very dark tan with a medium head. The aroma is fruity, floral and a touch roasty. Flavour wise, it beautifully balanced with caramel, fruit, a touch of coffee and a very firm but not over the top hop bitterness. This is definitely on the sweeter side for a black IPA but damn it drinks well. The palate is a touch creamy and the carbonation is medium. Really smooth and supremely well integrated. Can’t recall having a Black IPA which is better than this.

Rosslew (236) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2014
Chocolate hit to start before the floral and citrus comes through. Black in the glass. A sting on the tongue with a sharp sugar finish. Another brew that gets better when allowed to settle. Classy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black in colour with a dark cream, almost brown head. Very piney/resinous on the nose but taste is incredible! Smokey and creamy but also nice and hoppy!

varanid99 (541) - AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2014
Black pour with a decent tan head & good lacing. Roast, citrus, cocoa, slightly floral aromas - big aroma even during the pour. Taste is roasty, piney, some citrus, and warm woody, vanilla; starts a little sweet but rounded out with nice bitterness. Cracking good beer - just shades the Karma Citra I reckon
