More on the IPA side of things than the stouty porter flavour. Head dropped off quickly, but the flavour finishes with a lovely citrus note. On tap, Bier Deluxe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeliriumT (384) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours jet black, very enticing! The aroma is more dominated by robust malt than fruity hops. Malt also dominates the flavour profile a little too much for a black IPA. Lots of sweet caramels, robust coffees and bitter chocolates balanced slightly with some hop flavour, but nothing like the hop flavour you expect from an IPA. Beautiful porter, but needs more of a hop kick to call it a great black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer Near-black, holds a good solid beige head. Nose packs a punch - citrusy, resiny, piney, passionfruity hops aplenty, rich roasty, nutty, charred malty goodness. Full bodied, sticky, moderate carbonation, seems bigger than it is. Big flavours on the body - roasty malts, cocoa, some meaty smoky Rauchmalz-like character, with resiny, citrusy, tropical fruit hops. Bitterness is lifted but well checked. Seriously good stuff - not just an IPA that is black, it’s like an IPA that made love to a complex, slightly smoky porter, and had babies.

A subtle black ipa with subtle lemon citrus and burnt toast notes. In the mouth there’s also some nuttiness that I’d associate with a Brown ale. The main criticism is that the palate’s a little thin.

Andrus86 (187) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2015
TAP. Poured cola in colour with light tan head. Sweet hoppy nose, with some subtle chocolate. Citra hops up front, slight dark chocolate flavour finishing with hoppy bitterness. Sourced Fire Station Busselton

stoutnick (734) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 Good looking stuff - black off white head. Aroma is roasted malt but subtle - nice stuff. Taste is sessional black IPA - drinkable but not particularly interesting. Nice stuff but nothing on the barrique.

beer-yum (819) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2014
An excellent example of one of my favourite styles - done with one of my favourite hops. More laid-back that others of the breed but all the better as it complements the perfect balance of the taste.

Hop_Hedonist (323) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2014
Huge charred malt - hops lost in the malt but some effect although unfocused - must be a style preference as it’s too much malt for me.

varanid99 (684) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
Deep black pour with light tan head. Slight cocoa aroma under roasted malt, huge citrus and passionfruit. Taste is toffee, dark chocolate, lemon/lime. Cracking good beer.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2013
Tap at Feral Brewery. Pours pitch black with a short off-white head. Super citrusy nose, lots of lime, passionfruit and grapefruit. Taste carries the citrus flavours plus dark malt flavours, touch of liquorice. Sunny autumn Sunday, perfect beer for the occasion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
