Bottle pours a dark black with a thin head. Nose as you might expect coffee and really green hops. Not too sweet and fairly hoppy.The coffee malt flavors are nice and not overpowering. Decent.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy chocolate, dark fruits, citrus, light pine, and alcohol. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, light molasses, and a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate pine, roasted coffee, and a hint of fruit. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

Poured from bottle into small bulbous sampler glass. Very dark brown/ black with very little thin light brown head. Smell is an interesting combination of floral hops and roasted coffee. The tasye has much more coffee to me, but there is a little bit of hop apparent. Medium bodied with a smooth feel, very little carbonation. Interesting beer. I expected it to be more extreme, but it actually is pretty well balanced, if a bit more "black" than "IPA". Pretty enjoyable.

dnicolaescu (736) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 5, 2014
BOTTLE 33CL from Cunningham. Thanks, Henrik! Look: pitch black, beige-orange frothy head. Aroma: Intense aroma of coffee-flavoured candy, old coffee, with burnt even smoky notes, bitter chocolate notes, some sweetness and light hoppy notes come through all this black aroma. Taste: coffee, but not really roasted, strong hoppy bitterness with roast overtones.

Delightful. Brown black pour with decent head. Coffee and herby hop forward aroma. Great balance--neither too sweet nor too bitter. I’d drink this for breakfast...or any meal of the day.

kingstoni (1498) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Black color with a medium thin beige frothy head. Strong aroma of resin, coffee, lemon, peach and licorice. Bitter and sweet taste. Sugary and bitter finish. Oily feel. Well balanced.

Bottle @ Home. Very nice, not vanilla flavoured, oatmeal stout. Herby, dry, roasted and hoppy. Full and balanced.

kerenmk (2285) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Black, with thin white wave. Some ash and ink and chili aroma, bitter, inky, burnt and a little hot taste. Smooth, full-bodied, a little spicy and acidic finish.

Berard (295) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Draft. Pours like used motor oil with creme colored head that lingers. Smells like chocolate covered raisins. Light carbonation. Not as chewy as you might expect an oatmeal stout. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonusWagner (1365) - Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Nose has nice earthy whole cone hop character and earthy coffee beans. Taste generally follows, a very earthy coffee note, some light cocoa roast character, a solid beer and certainly one of my favorites within the style (which I generally find disagreeable).

Pours black with a solid tan head. Looks more like a stout than a black IPA. Awesome aroma like hops soaked in black coffee...really unique. Nice flavor...like a creamy coffee porter up front that fades into hop bitterness. Great creamy mouthfeel with solid heat that complements the hop bitterness...really good, unique beer.
