Had on-tap at BoatWorks and served in a shaker pint. Appearance: Black. Finger of dark brown head. Great lacing, (4/5) Smell: Excellent mix of hops and roasted malt... fruity and earthy hops one whiff, roastiness the next. Really nice stuff that I like. Doesn’t blow me away, but great balance for the style. (3.75/5) Taste/feel: On point. Excellent. Phenomenal blend of sweetness and bitterness that make this a brew to remember. Again, plenty of nice hoppiness coupled with chocolate and roastiness. Could you ask for much more? The brew is also nice and full in feel with a medium carbonation. Very nice. (4.25/5, 4.5/5) Excellent beer. Definitely one of the very best I’ve had from the style. Great balance. Doesn’t favor the hops nor the roast. I really like this brew. 4.25/5

Bottle pour to shaker. Black-brown. Little head. Interesting combination of roast malt, chocolate and coffee with piney hoppy IPA characteristics.

12 oz. bottle from BlowOffTube. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, coffee, spicy notes and some chocolate with some earthy, piney and citrus hops mixed in. Probably a bit malt forward, but does have a decent bitterness to the finish.

Barwa: czarna, nieprzejrzysta nawet pod światło. Piana beżowa, średnio pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita, szybko opadająca. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: czekoladowy, lekko palony, charakterystyczny dla ciemnych słodów w zestawieniu z chmielowym. Bardzo przyjemny i kuszący. Smak: wytrawny, na końcu słodki, przechodzący w gorzki. Akcenty gorzkiej czekolady i alkoholowość. Dość rozgrzewające. Po chwili pojawia się kwaskowość charakterystyczna dla użycia dużej dawki ciemnych słodów. Fantastyczne piwo. Short’s Brew po raz kolejny udowadnia, że oferuje naprawdę ciekawe propozycje. Jest to wręcz oleista ciemna IPA do spokojnego sączenia. Zawarty w niej aromat nie może się znudzić. Smak również świetny. Ocena byłaby wyższa gdyby nie cena. Uważam że butelka 0,33 l nie powinna kosztować więcej niż 15 zł, co i tak jest już sporą kwotą.

12 bottle crushed with Honkeybra. Pours pitch black with zero head. Pretty under-carbonated. Very dark malts make this incredibly astringent. Gets borderline ash tray. The dark malt overpowers the hops a bit too much. More like a hoppy stout than a Black IPA.

Brown pour, tan head. Way too malt forward for me. The hops are lost in a roasted malt and sweeter finish. Meh.

Clownoisseur (137) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours an oily black, pretty opaque. Very thin butterscotch head. Medium to low carbonation. Hard to see the bubbles being so dark. Aromas of coffee, and roasted nut. Some hops creep in, giving an earthy undertone. Taste is very malt-forward, imo. Thick, oily coffee and roasted nut. A nice rich mouthfeel. Some bittering hops lend pine, earth, floral notes and a dash of spice to the moderately dry finish. Pretty decently done, but close to the the stout/porter end of the spectrum.

TheHOFF43 (1672) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with no head and no carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts and piney hops. Taste is similar. No carbonation is not helping this beer.

michcam8 (267) - Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours jet black. Little to no head. Aroma is of mostly roasted, chocolate malts. Not much, if any detection of hops. Taste is on the chocolate malty side, with some slight citrus hop coming though. Average beer. Nothing great, but not bad either.

Lots of malt upfront. Flavors of creamy dark chocolate and lightly roasted coffee leading to citrus hops, orange, citrus peel, caramel and hints of toffee. Very well balanced and a great take on the style.
