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

Great citrus aroma. The beer is very dark colored. The brown head disappears in a few seconds. The taste is caramel and bitter (hoppy). Great beer.

Comes out of the tap an opaque coffee brown with a thin tan head. Aroma had notes of roast malt and quality coffee plus a snip of hops. Flavor has rich mocha and hop notes, like the best stout mixed with the best IPA, plus caramel, nutty, earthy and licorice tones and a fruity hint. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Firm texture is quite smooth and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy mocha finish. Donít fade away, drink one!

Beautiful dark beer. I do t get much from the nose but I'm kind of smell-blind so don't trust my opinion. It's roasty, citrusy, hoppy and bitter. Even and complex. Delightful.

Color certainly matches the title. Thin, creamy head floats atop a pitch black body. Very strong pine hops are noticed first. Charred wood comes through next, followed by sweet malt. Bitterness from the hops really linger. More than 60 IBUs almost make you pucker. Chocolate comes through as it warms.
The balance is what makes this so good. There is enough going on with the sweetness, bitterness, texture, and char to give it great flavor.

The aroma is peppery and citrusy with a toasty malt core. The beer is deep chalky brown, almost black. The head is a thick, deep tan and leaves a full thick blanket of lace as the glass draws down. The flavor has a milky bitter roastiness that quickly falls back to a punchy fruity sweetness. The beer manages to finish bittersweet. Imagine that.
