Imperial/Double Black IPA
An uncivilized amount of american hop spicyness along with a chocolaty mix of dark roasted flavors.

Amazing beer. Very hoppy, yet also fruity, with a solid body of roasted malt. Very tasty and diverse. Great.

Dr_Fellini (792) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle to glass. Not sure how fresh. Pours a deep brown, almost black color with a tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts, mild coffee/chocolatey bittterness, a hint of piney hops. Flavor is a roasted malt bitterness with a touch of chocolatey sweetness. Medium in body with a lingering burnt bitterness. Tasty black ale, but probably would have been better fresher with more hop predominance.

b33r (717) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
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?

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2013
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 (1358) - 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.

Martinus (3638) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2013
Black colour, beige head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, coffee and roasted notes. Light floral. Light sweet flavour, quite bitter, caramel, malts and a hint of vanilla. Finish caramel, roasted malts and chocolate.
(From 66cL bottle @ ZZT 8b, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing, Abijen!)

574deadzone (1192) - 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.
