3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 500mL bottle into a chalice. Pours dark brown, almost black. Thick brown head. Aroma is hoppy with layers of malt. There are notes of spices, pepper, and coriander. Flavour is loaded with hops up front with notes grapefruit and lemon. On the back end the dark malts start to come through but the hops win from start to finish which surprised me considering this is a black IPA. Overall a nice hoppy black IPA.

Bottle thanks to Rouhlas for sharing! Pours dark brown almost black with a thin beige head. Aroma of hops some fruit and dark malt. As the beer gets warmer I start to discover more taste... Hoppy bitternes and fruity taste involved with coffee and dark roasted malt. Realy complex beer that you can enjoy in warm temperature. Bittersweat aftertaste with nice carbonation for the style. Good beer !!!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle bought from Mikkeller and Friends enjoyed at home
Pours quite dark, massive tanned head. Smells of pine cones, roasted malts. resins, ark malts, spices and herbs. Moderate sweet, fruity and juicy, pine and resins, other wood, dark malts. roast and hints of coffee. Heavy bitter resins and pine hops, some roast as well. A very nice beer. Probably even better with a super fresh bottle

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A rich roasted cocoa Black IPA with generous piney-grapefruity hopping.
How: Bottle 22oz, post-HF FoFA 2013, drank about 1/3rd of the bottle.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a medium beige head.
In long: Nose is bright piney-citrusy hops, roast and cacao. In mouth a rich body, creamy texture, a generous carbonation. Taste is very satisfying. Roast, cookies, milk chocolate, cocoa beans, generous hopping. The hopping has piney flavors along with bright graprfuity lemony character I rarely find in Black IPAs. A superior Black IPA. So apparently In The Name Of Suffering is the name of an album by the band EyeHateGod who are friends with Three Floyds, I know nothing about this album or the band but I’m rulling out smooth Jazz.
