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.

I liked this beer more than I thought I would. Pleasant hop bitterness with a malty aroma, has some nice brown to black color, and a great balance.

Bottle shared by Steve - thanks! 12 fl oz bottle, poured into a tulip, cloudy dark brown. Nose is malt and hops. Flavor is bitter with some citrus, roast and malt. Not very well balanced, overly bitter and dry.

Dark body with off white head. This is definitely more on the stout side of the black IPA style. Like a really nice stout with noticable hops, rather than just a darkened or slightly roasted malt IPA, which is more typical of black IPAs. Anyway, this was unique and very tasty.

LethalDose (4) - - MAY 11, 2013 does not count
Good overall flavour but the palate and after taste starts out rough. Builds on itself; the second pint is much better than the first.

guinnesses (11) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2013
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.

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at yespr. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Roasted and hoppy aroma of cocoa powder. Roasted and hoppy flavour of dark chocolate and grapefruits. Hoppy and roasted finish.

Ungstrup (29850) - 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.
