Chudwick (2278) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Pint at ei8ht ball - in a can shaped glass. Nose is pine and almost mint. Sip adds dark malts and citrus notes. More on the IPA side of the side leaving the black out in the cold. Bitter indeed. Not my favorite for the style. Dry on the finish. Down the hatch!

Tmoney99 (11351) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt & earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer

minihame2 (235) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 7, 2014
Pours bubbly black with a tan head. Looks like coca cola except with some sediment. Aroma is not that strong, malts in the background but mostly some citrus fruit. Slick mouthfeel, the tingyness of the co2 is just right for me in this one. Bitter taste of an IPA as expected, but lacks the hoppy part. I think there’s something lemon in the taste also. I am not a big fan of the black IPA style but this wasn’t anything like the ones I’ve had before (which is not that surprising for a Mikkeller beer). Anyway, this one sounded decent, looked really good, but the result was lacking for me.

angel77 (1184) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en cimmeria. Mayo de 2013 y también unas cuantas pintas de grifo en el mismo sitio. Increíble black ipa, de las mejores, si no la mejor que he tomado hasta el momento. Intensos sabores tostados y quemados terminando con un intenso amargor fresco y verde que se combina perfectamente con los anteriores y dura en boca un buen rato. Cuerpo medio, bastante fácil de beber con 7.3 vol. Imprescindible repetir

Bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, schiuma compatta e duratura. L’aroma più che sull’agrumato tende sul resinoso e sul biscottato. Se al naso non sembra niente di che, al palato invece rivela un equilibrio e una bevibilità notevolissima, con un bel retrogusto amaro.
