Bottle. Totally black, beautiful beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of bright pine on a background of bitter cocoa. Taste starts sweet and roasty, then dry and bitter cocoa, espresso, pine. Delicious.

Bedankt Belgbeergeek. 66 cl. fles gedeeld met Belgbeergeek & Sebletitje @ Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Donker bruin met een kleine mokka kraag. Geur heeft heel veel zwarte peper, redelijk wat kruiden, Amerikaanse hop hars, chili chocolade, pikant met wat chili, fascinerend, komt dicht echt hoor enkel dankzij zonder hop, gemakkelijk de meest interestante en beste Hoppin’ Frog bier tot nu toe. Smaak is zoete chocolade, beetje room vermeng met zwarte peper, kleverig, wat hars maar echt heel hars hoppig is dit ook weer niet, donker fruit, cacao, lichte aardse hop op het einde. Gemakkelijk een van de beste Black IPA’s die ik tot nu toe gehad heb.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The aroma was raisin musty and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild hops and dark malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Theydon_Bois (9131) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle on Amtrak Train 27 - The Empire Builder ( from Binny’s South Loop) - 05/11/12. Mid black with a big frothy tan head that retains well. Good lacing ensues. Light roast malt on the nose, chocolate, liqourice, hops, treacle toffee, molasses and a touch of smoke. Taste takes on all the charectaristics of the nose allied to light tropical fruit flavours, a little pine, touch of citrus. Fuller end of medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth drinking. As much stout as CDA! Decent stuff none the less.

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012
Nice black IPA all around here. Very rich and milk chocolatey with nice vibrant piney, herbal hops. Some muddled elements that drop it from the best black IPAs but its very good and worth trying for sure

Sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Moreau. Pours a dark brownish black body with thin lacing. Aroma is spicy hop, pine and malt. Mouthfeel is meidum, well carbonated with notes of spice, pine hop and roasted malt. Very good Black IPA.
