Dark brown/amber color with small tan head and little lacing. Aroma and flavor have nice piney bitterness, light citrus, and a light toasted malt. Okay overall.

Pour from bomber. Very hoppy and lots of rye. Decent black IPA. Sort of on the thin side.

Bottle 650ml @Beer Hunters
Opaque black brown color, steady bronish head. Toasted aroma with fruity-citrusy hoppy notes, some licorice. Medium-bodied. Licorice, rye bread, some bitterness, late ashyness. Not really typical CDA. More malty toastnyness than normally. Dissapointment from this brewery. Maybe needs very fresh bottle?

Pours black with thick light brown head. Smells sweet, with hops, malts, and flowers. Tastes of chocolate malts, hops, bitter, caramel, and roasted malts. Has light carbonation with lasting bitter and creamy texture.

angel77 (1090) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2013
Botella de 65 cl en el Lupulo. 17-12-13. Alucinante cerveza... claro imperial black ale. Color negro intenso con espuma poco persistente. Cuerpo medio aumentando según calienta. Aromas frescos de lupulo con ligero toque cítrico, café, especiado y cacao . Sabores a lupulo fresco con Amargor notable marcados con quemados y torrefactos y algo de cacao en su momento más caliente. Ligero toque dulce a pasas al final. Gran combinación de verdor de lupulos y torrefactos. Muy buena ya va el segundo botellon y la cosa es para continuar.

574deadzone (1088) - North Central, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours pitch black with a thinner mocha-khaki head that leaves some small, spotty lace. Nose involves lots of dark chocolate, toast, fresh pine, milk chocolate, earth, stone fruit, biscuits, dank grapefruit, frosting, molasses and mango. Pretty sweet and pretty bitter. Medium to full bodied, thick and rich, sticky, oily, pretty actively carbed, with a lengthy drying bitter finish. Really damn good brew, a nice bold and complex mix. Among the best I’ve had in the style.

Zzt’13. Zwarte kleur en beige schuimkraag. Ruikt naar koffie, vanille, rokerig, fruitig. Smaakt zoet, vanille, koffie, klein beetje hoppig.
