33cl bottle at Draft & Craft, Amsterdam on 04-Dec-2015. Picked it up because I loved the artwork, but wasn’t disappointed buy the beer. Lovely deep black colour with a tan coloured head. Hoppy caramel malt aroma. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. Taste of cocoa, caramel and hops. Nice bitter finish. A good black IPA.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 22, 2016
Slabe IPA ciemne. Naciagana trojczyna odemnie. Za mało wytrawne i za mało chmielne, zwłaszcza w aromacie. Karmelu za dużo, lekko wodniste i metaliczne w smaku. Wyglad ok, piana spora i trwala, ciemne czarne i geste piwo, ale smak neutralny i lekko chmielny. Jak na Black IPA to więcej chmieli aromatycznych by się przydalo. Odrobina goryczy w koncowce ale i tak jest zbyt krotka. Do tego zbyt nachalny alkoholowe wykończenie i zalegajaca czekolada mleczna.

Evilman (122) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 A very good surprise ! I bought this one because it was on sale during one of my trip at a local beer seller, he told me it was a strong and dark beer, just what I like, and damn he was right ! Very strong aroma, just a bit fruity and an amazing coffee-like afterstate, truely a beer that differs from the others. APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW !

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2016
33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: black beer, small unstable beige head. NOSE: hoppy, quite some chocolate, little florar. TASTE: chocolate, quite heavy bitter aftertaste, mocha comes in after. Very faint hoppiness, but bad flavour...

jamaty (1868) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 30, 2015
Negra opaca, de espuma beige, cremosa y duradera. Aroma tostado, notas de café, cacao y lúpulo. Excelente en boca, con buen cuerpo y punto de gas y rico sabor tostado, vainilla, chocolate, y perfecto punto de acidez frutal. Equilibrada, con amargor final claro y postgusto rico. Alcohol muy bien disimulado. Muy buena.

poech73 (369) - Braine, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2015
Bière brune bien lourde: très complexe aromatique au nez et en bouche. Le nez reçoit de belles senteurs citronnées, chocolatées, du candi et un houblonnage herbacé. La bouche très grasse aux saveurs de caramel chocolaté aigrelet et citronné s’estompe au profit d’un houblonnage herbacé, légèrement résineux discret sans trop s’apesantir. En arrière goût, la finale dominés par des saveurs cacaotées, argileuses et mentholées avec une amérisation aigrelette se révèle sèche et moyennement longue. #300

Pours dark black with tan head. Aroma has lots of caramel and coffee notes. Taste is nicely balanced starts of with a complex malt profile filled with coffee and caramel followed by a nice hop profile with grass and pine. Very complex and enjoyable!
