Thick inpenetrable black with inch of foam. Aroma is toast, leather, citrus. Taste is restrained but punchy - it’s led by the malt, really - with rich toast, espresso. Hops come through primarily in significant bitterness rather than any particular aroma. More stout than CDA. Although perfectly fresh it may be a different story. I’m still happy to drink it though!

Holmen2 (2265) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2015
Backlog. From tap at Mi2 at Cardinal 22.04.13. Slightly unclear dark brown. Low, but persistent head. Aroma of smoke, some sweetness, strawberries and amber malt. Tate of dark caramel and citrus, with some smoke. Smoke, sourness and hops in aftertaste. Appropriate carbonation. An exciting beer, but a little to sour,

kerenmk (3483) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Stas and Vova. Opaque dark brown with a beige head. A little roasty, chocolate candy aroma, bitter, a little alcoholic, a little stale and nutty taste. Medium body, fair fizz, long and a little malty finish.

pastymc (34) - Niscemi, ITALY - MAY 14, 2015
Bottiglia da 50 ml Molto scura, con lievissimi riflessi ambrati; cappello di schiuma color nocciola, intensa e persistente. Al naso pungenti note affumicate, odore di sottobosco, di fogliame bruciato, poi di nocciola, caffè, leggermente etilico. In bocca gli aromi affumicati e tostati del malto vanno ad esaltarsi, con sentori di carciofi arrosto, ancora caffè, leggero caramello. Il finale ci ricorda che è un’India Black Ale, facendo fuoriuscire la luppolatura che ben va a chiudere e bilanciare il tutto. Carbonazione medio-bassa, corpo medio-alto. Ben strutturata e ben equilibrata, piacevolissima scoperta

50cl bottle. Batch 690 brewed 27.11.2013. Pours dark cola brown with reddish accents, thick foamy uneven light beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, citrus peel, candied fruits. Taste is roasted malts with some smoked and meaty notes, some ground coffee, faint citrus. Probably the hops are mostly gone but the beer aged quite good overall. Very pleasant mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation.

scirtes (236) - POLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle, batch 690. Beer is black with beige, long lasting, creamy head. Very nice lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, some dried fruits, raisins, plums, only some hints of smoked malts (?). Sweet with some bitterness. texture somewhat oily. I can’t feel hops aromas, but the beer is not a very fresh one (brewed 27.11.13, bb 27.05.2015). Would never say this is black IPA, nevertheless a great beer, worth trying.

Rolfarild (176) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Almost black with a light brown head that ends in an island. Sicky thick lacing. Aroma is dry with a faint smoky apperance and some sourness. Taste burned dark malt, bozze, bread, caramell, cold coffee and a little smoke. Aftertaste of bitter malts, no hops?
