Hybrid out of a massive Black Albert & a Elliot Brew that was bourbon barrel aged... S.H.I.T. is the abbreviation for Super High Intensive Taste

Full-bodied stout with a nice hoppy finish. Don't let it age too much in the cellar or the hoppy finish will vanish. So fine with dark chocolate

Finally got his one in my stomach. Decent blend between the Black Albert & Elliot Brew. Nice hoppy beer, and a good black IPA.

On tap. Lots of coffee, roasted cereal, some oak, bourbon. Lots of sweetness. For a black ipa the hops don’t come throw so much. A great brew, very complex but maybe a bit too low on hops for the style.

Acid303 (495) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUN 13, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 75cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Pours black with 2 fingers of beige head. Chocolate and sweet malts aroma, some coffee notes as well. Similar taste with substantial bourbon added, sweet overall but not too much thanks to the hops. Finish is sweet, it should be more dry in a Black IPA. Medium/low carbonation. Interesting experiment, it was to be expected that this wouldn’t be a regular Black IPA, even though some things are improvable.

Shared 75cl bottle from bierkoning, amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is medium, brownish, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is bourbon, flavor is chocolate, dark roasted coffee, vanilla, light liqueur, licorice, ash. Light sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty bitter, slightly liqueurish, alcohol is well hidden. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Excellent dessert beer.

Botella de 75 en el kraken el 24-04-2015 en el momento. lote BDS0082012 hasta 30-09-2018. (R92) color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscuro. Aromas sutiles maltosos dulces con caramelos tostados y especias acabando con herbáceos lupulados suaves, cada vez mas notables según va calentando. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 12 vol, algo espumoso (aumentando al calentar) pero bastante ligero y fino en paso por boca y fácil de beber. Sabores suaves y sutiles también de maltas tostadas algo dulces y especiadas al inicio pasando poco a poco a mas herbáceas y lupuladas con un final amargo suave, duradero y perfectamente combinado con todo lo anterior. Grandisima cerveza, compleja y perfectamente equilibrada en sabores destacando un amargo tostado final sutil y duradero. Una grande.

MarcoDL (2959) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Thick black pour. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt and cacao. Taste of dark cacao, vanilla, fruity hops, roasted coffee and a medicinal touch. Sometimes hoppy and fruity bitters, sometimes bourbonny vanilla stout. Diverse and strange brew, but very good.
