Good bitter ipa, that uses a less flowery hop than often is used. This a fine black ale, with good bitter aftertaste. Also roasted chocolate and malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

First black IPA I’ve tried so the rating may change. Black colour with small tan head, some kind of sultana cake soaked in brandy on the nose. Taste and mouthfeel is similar to a porter with roasted malt, dark chocolate and bit bready cake again. Finished off with some typical bitter grapefruit orange peel hopps, not too dry. Really liked it will buy again, and certainly need to try some more of this style !

wlajwl (5831) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Aroma is citrus/fruit, dark malts and a hint of spring water. The flavor is dark malts, light grapefruit, hops, spices and a mix of bitterness and acidity in the finish.

Werckmeister (2285) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 12, 2016
0,33l bottle at home. BB 03/2016. almost black color, small tan head. smells of roast, light licorice, parfume, berry notes, bit flowery, ligthly earthy. interesting smell, i like it. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, earthy notes, almost smoky, spices, some coffee, bit soapy, light currant notes. finishes light roasted and a bit dry with earthy notes and licorice. good one, liked the smell almost a bit better than the taste. not much hops left on the taste, but probably because it does not seem to be so fresh anymore, still very enjoyable beer.

rondphoto (4097) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2015
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Opaque black color, two-finger tan head, curtain of lace. Aroma of somewhat bitter toasted malt. Taste is bitter toasted malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow, followed by more hops in a long finish. The bittering is dominant, keeping balance at bay.

bhensonb (14165) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle from Wine & Cheese. Pours very dark cola with a tan head. Aroma is hints of milky chocolate, maybe a touch of vanilla, coffee?, but not particularly any burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is a touch of burnt malt, some milky chocolate (darkish, perhaps) and a fair amount of mixed resin/citrus/fruit hop. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s fairly bitter. Good black IPA.
