Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks to Aaron for the pour! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, slight orange, hints of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, chocolate, dark fruits, nice orange, biscuit roast, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Nice version of the style.

500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a dark cola brown to almost black with a large khaki head. The aroma and flavor have some dark burnt malts, almost smoky. Additional notes of chocolate, earth, mild bittering hops. Hints of coffee. Pretty solid black ipa.

4/III/14 - 1Pt. 9Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - bottled: 12/31/13 (2014-245) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the bottle!

Very dark brown to black beer, irregular fizzy beige head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: smoky, ashes, bit fishy (no really, smells like fish gone bad, we smelled it with three persons), caramel, mocha, coffee, dried fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, fruity start, pineapple, bit soky, cocoa powder, hoppy, sour touch. Aftertaste: bit sour, very bitter hops, ashes, dry, medicinal bitterness, bit smoky, charcoal, coffee grit, way too roasted for me. I would categorize this as a hoppy stout, not a black IPA.

16.9 oz bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good; a cloudy coffee with light beige lacing. Smells good too; dark malt and bitter hops with a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Tastes like it smells, only not quite as robust. Nice and smooth on the palate. A good Black IPA.

50 cl bottle @ tiong, bottled 10.07.2014
Aroma is rather nice with lots of fruity hops, grapefruit and some licorice. Flavour has lots of hops, grapefruit, ash, some licorice and nettles. Usually I don’t like CDAs where roastiness is left behind the hops, but this was good. I’d smoke this everyday.

czar (7723) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
drank shortly after another one (both really fresh). pours very dark brown with a creamy tall dark beige head, excellent retention and strong lacing. intense chocolatey, milk chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, burnt malts, dark roastiness along with big citrusy and piney notes, never too piney though although medium roastiness seems to enhance that aspect. also maple syrup with your strong morning coffee breakfast - some sweetness indeed. average carbonation, medium body - oily and almost syrupy, grassy-citrusy, lightly piney and relatively short finish. not your average drinkable bipa but it certainly is complex and juicy fresh in its own way!

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of really rich roastiness, floral hops, wet hoppiness and some leather. Rich flavour of roastiness, wet hoppiness, licorice, leather, citrus and some bread. Medium bodied and a rich, long, bitter finish. Heavy.
