Pours black with a beautiful thick off-white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, pine and roasted malt. Flavour is hoppy up front, moderately bitter with notes of roasted malt. A little smokey. Very little booziness for ~10 per cent abv. Not much coffee flavour. Absolutely delicious anyway - probably one of the best black IPAs I’ve tried.

Bottle. Black with a large light tan head that collapses to an inch but then lasts well. Aroma of grapefruit, coffee, ash, pine, oyster shells. Silky, lowish carbonation. Certainly not all that heavy for getting on for 10%. Some sweetness from treacle and some mocha - the coffee’s not that prominent - almost sour citrus, pine. Strongish bitterness with Sichaun pepper, minerals at the end. Interesting, like a slightly less unhinged De Molen stout.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Appearance: Black with 5 finger thick tan head. Aroma: Toast, grassy, cold coffee, roast/burnt malts. Taste: Low sweetness, medium sourness, medium/high bitterness and slightly salty. Palate: Thick coarse texture, light/medium body, average carbonation. Abrupt cold coffee, roast/burnt malty bitter/sweet finish. Comments: Tasty and glass lace. Very bitter.

On tap at Beer Temple. Black with a lacing beige head. Piney hops and coffee, refreshing, yet very complex. Great.

God humlebitterhed som varer ved i eftersmagen. En vis friskhed i eftersmagen. Virkelig god fylde, meget harmonisk.

tadahster (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Strongly stouty. Has a lot of roast character. Thus it is like an Imperial Stout with IPA ambition.

Aroma is a little resinous with slight coffee flavour. A beautifull black beer with a tiny head with big bubbles that quickly fades. Nice bitterness with roasted notes. Good black ipa, surprisingly good as I am not a big fan of the style usually.

Chrishrt30 (102) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Thick tan head on a pitch black beer. Unusual aroma, sweet and roasty, hints of chocolate and coffee. There is something else I just can't pick, a salty, sea like aroma. Drinks like a thick stout, sweet and chocolately. Taste of Belgium chocolate, roasted coffee and hop resin. Dark fruit cake, cigar ash and a slight sourness. The finish has is like burnt toast, roasted and bitter. An interesting and unusual beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
