mikeyo1 (214) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with an amazingly creamy looking head with an off-white plus beige colored texture. Aroma has lots of pine apple, orange, tangerine and grape, and a balanced background of toffee, cookies, pine needles, lemon zest, and hints of coffee & ash. Medium bodied and smooth. Grape and orange up front, with a nice transition to peach and pine apple in the mid taste that also has some sweetness, bread & toffee that nicely balances the hops. Grape and pineapple, nuts, wood and pine needles in the finish, with an assertive and balanced coffee and tropical bitterness. Complex with a perfect balance, wow!

Cool_Bond (1439) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
Fruity and floral scent. The taste is fruity and sweet. Quite heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. A bit too heavy for my taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

olsvammel (3072) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell with citrus and tropical fruits. Hoppy taste with a light roasted malty flavour. They really managed to keep the roasted coffee flavours low which I like about this style. Maybe it should have been slightly more malty, but I’m not complaining. Tasty beer.

MSBrindbergs (348) - Solna, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
Flaska från SB. Kolsvart med ett klent ljusbrunt skum. Vilken arom! Nästan brandrök, men toner av grape och frukt från långtbortistan ligger där och skvalpar. Mycket fint balanserad i sötman och bitterheten. Kunde varit lite kraftigare i munkänslan. I believe in black IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
