Purchased at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Pours with a generous amount of thick, dense head leaves a beautiful layer of doily-esque lacing. Strong aroma of coffee, butterscotch, caramel, roasty chocolate and some oily hopiness. Hopiness very apparent on first sip; nice bitterness along with a thin coffee roastiness and minerality. More watery in texture than expected after that full smell. Malted, powdery sweetness is faint but a nice undertone. The hops bitterness really dominates, especially in the finish. I can’t really point to anything wrong about the beer, but my own personal preference is for a less watery mouthfeel. Otherwise, the flavors are intense and pretty well-defined.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours pitch black with a nice soapy milk chocolate head. Nose is cacao and espresso with some grassy and light citrus notes. Taste is a coffee bomb followed by lots of fresh cut grassiness. There is also a nice chunk of cacao. Very dry on the palate. This is by far the best black IPA I’ve had. Fantastic!

Another beautiful Mikkeller’s invention. Pours creamy black with a big brown head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts. Taste adds chocolate and hops. Creamy, smooth, beautiful.

Bottle at the grandparents- pours opaque black with huge fluffy brown head that settles eventually into a dense ring. Perfect tulip pour. Roasted coffee beans, chocolate malts, some piney hop resin from the simcoe, just appetizing borderline black IPA but the coffee is just right without being astringent and the hop resinous bitterness doesn't overpower. Perfection with this white chocolate cheesecake. Need to workout after this pairing but crap, it's good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great aromas and flavors of black malts, coffee and piney hops. Truly black with a solid weight but not too heavy. Blended very well.

From notes on 5/29. Didn’t really care for the smell. To me, it smelled like dirt. Really through my experience off. Had a nice thick black body. Awesome coffee taste. The smell though, I just couldn’t get past it.

Bottle. Light black pour with a frothy tan head. Nose has tons of hoppy notes, some roast and coffee. Taste is dominated by bitter coffee, french press, some light notes of tropical fruits.
