Hopmaestro (1319) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma from this oxymoron, India Pale Ale Black, is fresh and citrusy. I catch a really nice aroma here from the hops. The taste is a little bit roasty from the malts but is strongly supressed by piney, tropical, citrus zest hops. It’s really good and well balanced and it leaves a rather long bitter aftertaste that is very pleasant. A good black IPA for sure.

Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2014
Flaska från SB. Närmast kolsvart, lågt beige skum. Stor humledoft och smak. Mycket tall, en hel del grape och lite tropiska frukter. Stor grapebeska. Inga brända smaker och endast lätta rostade toner och en liten rund mjuk munkänsla. En riktigt bra svart IPA.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Deep brown, almost black with a good foamy tan head. Starts sweet and fruity with pine notes. So e roasty flavour in the background - a little too in the background for me. The finish is bitter chocolate with a little lingering ash. A good BIPA, but Iwas was hoping for even more from this brewery.

Flaska i present från @thaalcoholic, tack! Svart vätska med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar friskt och fruktigt. Smakar kraftigt av rostad malt och humlig fruktighet. Bra!
