330ml bottle. There is certainly a lot of darkness in the colour with this beer pouring a midnight black and carrying a deep head of an foam that hovers and takes a while to settle. Hops, malt and chocolate are intermingled in the aroma while the flavour is much the same. One of the better black IPA’s I have had.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle, 9C. Black with a large beige head. Aroma of nectarines, kumquats, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Lightish bodied, despite large and growing head carbonation is restrained. Plenty of citrus and some stone fruit, caramel, chocolate. Finish is snappily dry and moderately bitter with lingering citrus notes.

ALLOVATE (2333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2013
Cap came off and beer ensued; could not get it into the glass quick enough as it literally exploded all over the kitchen bench. The author of seduction it finally settles in the glass. Three inches of rocky brown plume atop an inky black body. Strong note of eucalypt and hibiscus with notes of cola, roasted coffee bean and carob, charred pine-wood and camphor. Chalky, dry palate. Heftily smoky, bonfire ash finish. Hops are prevalent but the bitterness is well restrained (maybe it’s showing its age prematurely). Soft mouthfeel, soft presence with good length. Malt forward but with a lot of piney, woody, nutty hop and yeast nuances. An enjoyable brew without being in your face. Nice!! (33cL, Bottled October 2012, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Bottle from Olinda Cellars. Exceptional, very tasty. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2012
Pours black with a large, light tan head. Nose shows heavy coffee, along with chocolate, vanilla and the faintest hint of piny hops. Not very BIPA-like but pretty enticing! Very similar flavours, with the addition of an aggressive, piny bitterness in the finish. Nice creamy carbonation. Not particularly hoppy but good nonetheless.

Cherry chocolate malt hop arms. Dark brown colour overprimed head and lacing. Sour malt chocolate flavour. Smooth palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours totally black with a small brown head. Aroma is malt, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, fruit, notes and hops. Taste is medium to high sweet leading to a roasty and bitter finish. Pretty damn good.

fletchfighters (1028) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2012
Quite black. No light penetrating this. Half finger of dark mocha colored head. Some think lacing. Nose is lots of chocolate with caramel and vanilla. Big malt body. Taste is chocolate, coffee, pine and citrus. Full bodied chocolate feel and a nice dry oak finish. Not really a black IPA but a big hoppy stout. Good beer either way. Becoming a really solid producer here.

Pyobon (891) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2013
(Bottle) Black with huge beige head. Lovely aroma mixing chocolate and hop pine. Full bodied with excellent mouthfilling velvety carbonation. Dark chocolate and dark roast malt flavours from start to finish with plenty of bitterness steadily building. Overall an excellent beer.
