It’s more like an imperial porter then a black ipa, but again it may be a bit old. It don’t much coffee but I taste a sweetness that resemble a sweet imperial stout. Not bad but as advertised...next week double damon!

olio (6277) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
33 cl bottle. BBE 29.05.2018.
Pours jet black color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of hops, roasted malts, citric fruits, faint licorice notes and some salty notes. Coffee is barely noticeable at first but starts to burst out with some spins and as the beer warms up a bit. All in all a very appealing aroma.
Flavor is also roasty, hoppy and fruity, a bit sweet with caramel even. Some salty licorice, malts and some mild coffee notes appear also. Soft carbonation, very heavy body, roasted malty palate with bitter fruity and hoppy finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Complex and extremely tasty. Excellent.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - SEP 10, 2013
Several bottles and draft specimens have been drunk, and I say YES! This is good good stuff! The aroma bursts of pungent hops that intertwine with fruity coffee. Focused on citrus and stone fruits, which is a really good choice along with the coffee and its berry-like fruitiness. Small whiffs of black malts, chocolate and prunes, although focused on hops and coffee all the way. At this point, 3,5 after bottling, the most aggressive hop focus in the taste is gone, and there’s now more space for the coffee and the sweet malts. Grapefruit, coffee and dark caramel on the front of the palate and an insisting bitterness in the back of the palate. A bit of roasty bitterness in the finish to go with the hops. This is a bad ass beer. One of the best of the style I’ve ever had.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Sampled at the London Craft Beer Festival 2013. Pours deep brown with a foamy tan head. Great stuff. Ballsy coffee character, some alcohol bite. Good dark chocolate notes, a bit of dark fruit. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderately warming to finish, some earthy bitterness, rich coffee, more dark chocolate. Superb.
