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

Bottle shared at RBWG GT. Poured a dark black of medium density with a tiny bubbly beige head. Aroma/flavor of dark toast, citrus hops, burnt ornages, roast malts, barrel, burnt dark chocolate. Body was thinner for the high ABV which led to some heat. Okay but expected more.

phaleslu (6343) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle shared at the Grand Tasting, I believe by jtclockwork- thanks again! Pours a deep, inky brown with no head. Plenty of rich, roasty malt notes, with dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, molasses, vanilla, tobacco, dates, figs, and some earthy hops. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. "Black IPA" is a bit of a stretch, since this one is massive and barrel-forward.

>> Thanks jtclockwork for the share. Pours a clear deep cola. Good foam. Nose is anesthetic, camphor, caramel filled chocolate, acetone. Taste is thin, sweet candy, TWIX/caramel filled chocolate bar. Tart, thinner body. Odd.

75cl bottle. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: black beer, small stable beige head. NOSE: coffee, chocolate, burned malts. TASTE: coffee, bitter, chocolate, hoppy, little fruity. Very nice beer! Too bad it’s quite expensive, otherwise I would buy a lot more of these!

Bottle shared by James at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours an oily black with a dark brown head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has notes of dark grains, dark fruit, raisins and booziness. Flavor has smooth sweet dark grains with raisins and chocolate but is a bit thin on the finish.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle @ Rooie Dop Brew dungeon. Sampled 5cl. Thanks for the share Mark. The aroma is big bourbon, lots of banana candy, some roast, chocolate. Black coloured beer with not much head. The taste is sweetish, has bourbon, more bitterness in the end, chocolate there, dark fruits, quite some roast. Nice.
