RafeAU (187) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
330 ml bottle from Plonk. Pours dark brown almost black, bubbly head. Big hop aroma, flavour is roastey and dark then the hops kick in. Has that distinct Nelson sauvin hop taste, aroma, and slight sourness. Nice.

Muggus69 (1270) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2014
330mL bottle Near-opaque deep brown body, holds a tight beige head. Pungent aroma of hops; passionfruit, guava, gooseberry, citrus peel, grass, nutty, toasty, lightly roasted coffee malt underneath. Full body, moderately high carbonation, certainly doesn’t seem as strong as it is! Smack bang more hops on the body - guava & lychee, grapefruit & grass, espresso & cocoa. High bitterness dries out the finish. Solid, very solid!

Mattress63 (65) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2014
330ml bottle from XO Cellars in Noosa Junction. Poors dark with nice creamy head and lovely fruity aroma. You can really taste the Nelson Sauvin hops and just the right malt backbone making this such a smooth and easy to drink Black IPA. Nice bitterness on the palate that lingers and creeps up on you. Great beer and quite possibly Kooindas best.

Mjollnir (391) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a thick off-white head that never diminished. Faint aroma of chocolate and resinous hops. Coffee and chocolate in the flavour, a little wood, not very hoppy, medium bitterness, mild sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation and a lingering woody finish.

hank37 (103) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2014
Great beer. Seems to me to have a maltier backing than most BIPA, and it’s a welcome observation, as far as I’m concerned. Theres the usual fruitburst aroma that is part and parcel for Nelson Sauvin hops, and then the wonderful chocolatey, velvet backbone with lashings of hops and sweet fruit.

gyllenbock (5010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle (33cl) at Tipplers Tap, Brisbane, August 2014. Black with a tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, grapefruit, dark chocolate and coffee. The finish was rather bitter. A descent one.

norkle (14) - - MAY 22, 2014
Aroma dominated by burnt malt toffee character. Great black opaque colour topped by good creamy lasting head. Taste is dominated by black beer burnt character. Palate is clean with some residual burnt malt at back of mouth that dissipates quickly. Overall a pleasant black beer, but not much of the hops advertised in IPA name. Possibly a little too much of burnt character without a lot of other depth of flavour.

Iphonephan (3624) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Poured from a bottle in Cairns, AUS. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of toasted nuts and some weedy notes. Flavors of tobacco and licorice. Not much hop character. Bitter, roasty finish.

Westkyoto77 (539) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. Aromas of espresso, spicy hops. Jet-black with a thick, creamy tan head. Lively carbonation, sticky body with quite a bit of sediment apparent. Flavours of prunes, soy sauce, a hint of treacle. Savoured this one- a very nice black beer.

mattyhennessy (342) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2014
Murky dark brown appearance with a solid tan head. There is an initial woody taste with burnt coffee and dark malt flavours. Progress into dark fruits and grapefruit and finishes with some citrus and resin. A dry, strong hop finish. Very nice
