Bottled. Pours clear deep dark ruby with a huge creamy, long lasting beige head. Lovely inviting aroma, some cocoa , dark light roasted malts and strong piney hops.

angel77 (1093) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en Cimeria 26-12-13. Cuerpo ligero - medio con espuma oscura poco persistente. Bastante bien de gas. Aromas tostados y torrefactos ligeros con hervaceos finales. Sabores a maltas tostadas con ligero toque hervaceo al final y Amargor contenido. Buena cerveza. Lo malo es que ha tenido que barrer el maravilloso sabor que tenía en la boca de una buena dosis de laphroaig quarter cask

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle date 2013-07-31. Dark brown close to black with a medium sized slowly diminishing lacing tan head. Soapy, light flowery, rye bread, tea, green hops, light burnt malts. Medium body, oily/watery texture, medium carbonation. A bit thin perhaps, but the finish is nice, dry and light bitter. Light sweetness. Grows on you. Not bad.

Beersiveknown (3258) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail
dark ruby brown, fluffy beige head which stuck around a while. Pine, peaches, citrus...slight oxidation notes perhaps (july bottling). Slightly toasty malt at first then some orange and red berries leading to a longish dry chocolate and orange peel finish. Hops muted somewhat but still fantastic. Carbonation perfect.

33 cl bottle.
Pours pitch black color with a huge beige head. Aroma roasted malts, rye, some burnt notes, chocolate, mild hops and grape fruits. Flavor of grape fruits, rye malts, burnt wood and cocoa. A bit harsh and not that fresh anymore, sadly, otherwise decent.

Color ruby oscuro con espuma color crema densa y con buena formacion. Aroma de pino resinas y uva. En boca, con densidad media es refrescante con presencia de tostados y un final amargo con un equilibrio entre resinas y frutas. Excelente.

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 31.07.13 - Pours pitch black with a smooth light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice, grassy hops, hints of fruits and resin. Taste is smooth, hoppy, slightly roasty and fruity with notes of licorice, coffee and resinous grassy hops. Finish is roasty, fruity and bitter with some resinous grassy notes and hints of coffee. Okay, quite smooth but complex black IPA.
