COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich darkness is not excessive as is sometimes seen in other craft iterations. A medium high hop flavor and aroma befits this style. The caramel and roasted malt flavors and aromas are enhanced with a well-controlled fruitiness.

Good overall flavour but the palate and after taste starts out rough. Builds on itself; the second pint is much better than the first.

Aroma is citrus American hops, roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor is a battle between hop bitterness and roasted malts, the flavors of which seem to clash. The finish is a bit harsh as well as the roast and hops continue to fight it out. An interesting beer, but one was enough.

Bottle. Dark brown pour. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and malt. Taste is slightly bitter like dark chocolate and French roast coffee. Very good.

Smell is mostly roasted malt flavors and characteristics and not so much in terms of hops. Has a pretty bitter finish, but I feel like the malt used is far too roasty. Wish this had more hop flavor and characteristics.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. A red-brown beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and hops, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

ccex (891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a dark brown with small beige head and little lacing. Aroma has roasted malts, citrus, pine caramel, and touches of chocolate and coffee. Taste is initially bitter, with some sweet caramel malts in a brief middle, with a dry finish. Not as hoppy as most black IPAs. Body is medium with good carbonation. Mouthfeel is oily but lively. A decent and balanced black IPA

csaso (1225) - Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Tap - good size foamy head, almost black color with a slight red hue, roasted malt aroma and flavor, fair hope - would have liked more hops and less roastiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, light beige head, with some lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is heavy chocolate, cocoa, lighter coffee, hints of pine, citrus.....taste is chocolate, light toffee/caramel, pine, light citrus, finishing with moderate, lingering bitterness......mouth feel medium, slightly astringent, carbonation makes a medium tingle. This is a nicely balanced, clean finishing Black IPA. It does not have the depth of complexity nor the powerful aromas and flavors often found in the style, but it is a nice representative. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7
