That time of year when the light fades away. Brewed for the darkness, Fade to Black speaks in volumes. Welcome to Volume 4, the Beer pours pitch black with an off white head. Citrus (bergamot) and roast dominates the nose. Slight sweet malt gets pushed back by initial citrusy hops followed by powerful Italian Amaro, gentian and hop bitterness. Finishing with a pleasant duality of dry roasted malts and hop bitterness.

Torrefacto (1095) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 9, 2013
De Black IPA esto tiene poco. Tiene un color negro opaco con una espuma beige clara abundante, aunque ligera. Los aromas son torrefactos y dulces. En boca tiene una densidad media-baja, entra suave mostrando un ligero dulzor que pasa después a un amargor acafetado equilibrado que es el que queda en el regusto. De lo mejor que he probado de esta cervecera.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - APR 28, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of weird fruitiness and a bit of roastiness. Roast flavor, a bit sweet, with a bitter finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. Decent, but doesn’t feel like a black IPA - not enough hops.

Lore (1654) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 21, 2013
deep brown colour, some quickly disappearing brownish head; aroma of fresh american hops with grapefruit and roasted malt; taste of roasted malt, hops with citrus notes - such like a mix of an IPA and a porter

Grzesiek79 (3592) - Radom, POLAND - APR 20, 2013
Znakomite ciemne IPA z Colorado. Piana spora ale sredniotrwala. Kolor istnie czarny, gesty i jak Guinness bez przeswitu. Zapach chmielowo-kawowy. Smak to gozka czekolada, gozka czarna kawa, troche orzecha i oczywiscie przerozne chmiele amerykanskie od aromatycznych po zwlaszcza goryczkowe. Polecam bo to swietne Black IPA

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a creamy, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up fresh orange and grapefruit hoppage over toasted caramel and nutty malts.. seemed to be missing a little something, but it was well-balanced. The flavor found toasted caramel and licorice at the core with mostly orange zest bitterness around.. bitter and roasty with a bit of citrus sourness on the finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, and a bit slick.. OK feel, but I didn’t love it.

DialSquare (3664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2013
12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Black pour with a medium tan head and good retention. Aroma is smoke, leather, dark malts. Tastes are the same with a lot more mixed in: dark fruit, grapefruit, perfume, citrus peel, coffee. Definitely a worthy sipper, but wouldn’t need it more than once.
