COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Demo is a deliciously dark lick of an India Pale Ale. It’s medley of roasted malts and heady hops will have your senses dancing to the beat of a different IPA.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2013
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown pour with ruby red highlights and a thin off-white head. Roasted malt and slightly chocolatey aroma with some light hop notes underneath it. Chocolate malts and a nice hop bite at the beginning of the flavor. The chocolate and roasty malt really blend well and only enhance the hop bitterness. Slightly sweet and roasty aftertaste.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 9, 2013
Malty chocolate aroma with barely any hoppiness. The taste is slightly sour mostly malt not much hop bitterness. This black IPA focuses too much on the malt & doesn’t have enough bitterness I think... As it warmed up it got better but still not really IPA like more like a well done stout or porter.

lots of molasses, black bread and hops. Well balanced, slightly malt accented.

KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle at Antenna America. Sweet flavors of licorice, chocolate, orange, cola or root beer. Not much in the nose, kind of industrial soda tasting. Very uninspiring.

Cuso (4732) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle, many thanks to rosenbergh. Dark brown color with small beige head. Roasted malt in aroma, coffee, molasses,dark chocolate. Taste, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Coffee bitter finish. Almost no hops. This is definitely not Black IPA, but Stout. Despite that, drinkable beer.

oh6gdx (20620) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottled. Deep amber colour, small head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and some slight fruity and quite thick notes of tar. Flavour is syrup, toffee, mild toffee and roast. Quite pleasant Black IPA without all too much hops.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - FEB 19, 2013
This is a stout - a slightly hoppy stout, but a stout all the same. No balance, very roasty with a mild hop finish. Missing a mid section. Left me a bit cold on an even colder night.
