jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Gravity cask at the 2016 Cambridge Beer Festival. Properly black - OK dark brown but just - with a creamy tan head and an impressive amount of natural carbonation. Over-roasted coffee competes with pine needles and turpentine for the aroma. Bitter taste with fruitiness of the hop dominating. Taste is slightly acrid due to the intensity of the roasted malt but I can live with that.

Evilkniamhel (577) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle from appellation wines. Pours dark black. Nose of forest floor, bitter coffee, dark chocolate and pine resin. The American hops come through on the palate, along with roasted malts. A lovely balanced black ipa.

koshack (1349) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Ciemno brunatne, z przebłyskami. Piana drobna, beżowa, opada zostawiając ślady na szkle. W aromacie palność i żywica. Amerykański chmiel. Łuska od słonecznika. Wszystko co powinno być w Black IPA. Słodkawe nuty w aromacie. W smaku dość wytrawne, słodycz ustępuje miejsca goryczce w posmaku. Palone, czekoladowe, dużo słodsze w aromacie niż w smaku. Alkohol lekko grzeje w przełyku. Bardzo przyjemne.

330ml bottle from The Beehive. Good sized cream head, nice little lacing. Dark black body. Nose is coffee, chocolate milk, roasted nuts. Flavour is sharp spicy hops, roasted nuts then big coffee flavour which carries on to the finish and lingers a long time. Milky chocolate plays around the edges. Rich, smooth, creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation. Delicious, luxurious.

Fajne. Typowa Black IPA. Zarówno w aromacie, jak i w smaku. Wygląd średni.

davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle. Pour is black with a thin head, aroma is toffee, caramel. Taste is roast malts, burnt coffee, bitterness, light zing, metallic. I’m assuming that the hops have faded because there’s not much there, decent nonetheless

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Cask at Leeds Brewery Tap. Near black with a finger of tan head. Light aroma but taste is a very strong hit of big coffee and chocolate chip cookie maltiness and plenty of fruity, citrussy hops. Almost a hoppy stout. A nice cask BIPA.

theprof (522) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Opaque black, thin tan top. Smells of prune and other fruits, dates, maybe, with a faint hint of chocolate. Tastes of licorice and raisin and wholemeal bread. Long savour, a pleasant tang. Recommended

Bottle. Dark brow with beige head, short lacing. Aromas of roasted malts with some notes of chocolate and hopes behind. Full, rich, creamy body with very nice bitterness finish. Very robust black IPA.
