visionthing (2794) - Oslo, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle at Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Black (or very dark reddish brown) with an off-white to beige head. Hoppy! Aroma of pine, citrus, herb and malt with some roasty notes and caramel. Sweet and hoppy with a nice citrussy bitterness in the finish. The hoppy IPA aromas is quite dominating, the black parts are more modest. Refreshing and delicious! (2013-01-26)

Vignale (2103) - 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 (1269) - 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!

mikeyo1 (233) - 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 (1492) - 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.
