COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The enormous hop schedule of this beer is balanced by a rich, roast malt character with rummy undertones. The oiliness of the hops coats the mouth with a huge lingering bitterness while the malts add coffee notes.

This was one of the most pleasant black ipas Iíve had. Brilliant black poor with a vibrant mocha coloured head. Aroma is full of coffee and citrus hops, very slight chocolate. Very nice smoothness to the beer which surprised me. Smooth bitterness, smooth coffee and chocolate and the high alcohol content you donít notice too much. Brilliant beer.

Pours a murky dark brown, coffee crema coloured head. Massive nose of floral and pine hops, slight fruitiness, some chocolate and vanilla spice notes. Biiiiiiig rush of hops, a bit chocolately and some hints of cloves/vanilla. 5/5 on the bitterness (it is very long and persistent finish) there is a slight oily texture but that mellows out the tang from the 11% ABV. This stuff will blow your socks off!

Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roasty, fruit, coffee, chocolate, rummy and hops. Taste is medium sweet and very roasty leading to a smooth finish. Damn fine work!

Bottle, 11C. Pretty pricey, really only succumbed to this because every damned Melbourne bottlo I go to someoneís banging on about Kaiju!. Black with a largish light tan head that lasts pretty well. Aroma of oranges, orange blossoms, coffee, brown sugar, nectarines, a little chocolate. Smooth oily texture, lowish carbonation is about perfect for me. Clean and bittersweet with loads of oranges, mocha (more dark chocolate than fruity coffee), Australian rumminess, a little pine and some alcohol. Zesty oranges along with firm bitterness at the end. Depth? Not really. Balance? Yes, of a kind. Thereís a nagging thought that surely an 11% beer should offer more than a fun whooomp, but itís just such a fun beer.

Looks..black brown light tan head. Smells.. Big fruity and piney hops, dark heavy roasty malts, slight coffee hints. Tastes..dominates early by rich toasty malts, big piney and resinous hops, some choc long lingering citrus bitterness.. Damn good.

On tap at Tomahawk Bar. This was a very pleasant surprise, delicious for such a strong beer, rich deep malt flavour and a warming hint from the alcohol. I loved it.

Pours pitch black with a beige head that last and lasts and lasts. Nose is dank and citrus hoppy aroma. Nose is coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit, pine and grapefruit finish. Slightly viscous and sticky mouth feel. Delicious.
