TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a brownish amber (not black that’s for sure) with a medium creamy bubbly light tan head that laced. Aroma of fresh citrusy and pine hops, caramel and honey roasted nuts. Flavor of toffee, caramel, tobacco, pine and citrusy hop notes. A solid dose of malt flavors going on here with the aggressive American hops to balance. They didnt hit the black in the appearance on this one and are getting too much of the malt flavor. More like a hoppy amber. Great beer but not a black IPA.

this excellent ale is medium bodied, with a nice head. Both the malt flavorings and the hops are very complex, creating a very good taste and a very interesting taste at the same time.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and coffee. Flavor was roasty with chocolate, coffee, caramel, pine, citrus and had a bitter finish.

Decent Black IPA. Smooth taste of hops and malt, not much else though. Bit standard.

Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en septiembre de 2013. Lote mm013 hasta 17-05-2014. Color negro con espuma beige. Aromas y sabores bastante especiados con un cuerpo ligero a medio de 6.5 vol con fácil paso por boca. Ligeros notas dulces y tostadas. Normal, sin muchas sorpresas.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein tiefschwarzes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, hopfig fruchtig bitter. Geschmack zunächst röstmalzig nach Kaffee, dann kommen deutliche bitter Fruchtnoten zum Vorschein.
