9.9% ABV. Black coffee IPA. Nice creamy layer of light brown bubbles. Unctuous malty nose, nicely alcoholic, redolent of stewed fruit, honeyed figs and sweet dates. Sticky honey on the tongue right away. Mead-like mouthfeel. Thick and syrupy. Light carbonation. Good hoppy finish with proud bitter hops help to balance the malty gravitas. Surprisingly light experience for what is advertised as a black coffee IPA and drinks like imperial stout or strong monks ale. The hops are what gives it away since the overall palate is hop-balanced. Other flavor notes predictably evoke descriptors like toasty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, treacle, peat, tobacco. There is a fair bit of alcohol in this expertly brewed experience, but you hardly notice it given the clear hop presence appearing at just the right time to perform cleansing palate duties fastidiously.

c’est une mousse très aérée, anarchique, bien maronnée, et rès opaque. Au nez, hébé !!!!!.... c’est houbloné,fruité type citriques, mandarines, ananas, les grains de café bien frais ,,ça sent le fumé, tabac frais,un plaisir pour mes naseaux, une pointe de réglisse?ca dit Made with French press coffee...ya un truc qui m’échappe, quelqu’un sait? M’enfin quel plaisir olfactif !!!!!! le genre que j’adore et vous commencez à le savoir, je prend mon pied avec le nez ( oui je suis souple !!) .c’est si complexe que je devrais faire un post pour l’olfactif et un autre pour le gout.. À ce propos....Hooooooooooo !!!!!!! en bouche c’est sévère !!!!!!!! la féssée, cul nu devant tout le monde !!!! moyennement huileux,ça démarre assez soft,mais très vite ça dérape: ça commence par le fruité, puis le café,doux,et là double attaque pour ton palais, c’est plus une féssée,à ce niveau là, c’est solo de derbuka avec tes fesses, l’amertume main gauche et main droite, les fruits noirs , le café ,cacao et la longueur en bouche, mes amis, une merveille...grillée, ample, interminable !!!!! cette Black coffee Ipa, c’est quelque chose de fatal pour les sens, trop de bonheur !!!

The aroma is sweet more than anything. Pours an inky black with a cappincino ring with minimal lacing. The taste malt up front and then citrus hops kicks in thevfinish. Nice. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a great example of a black IPA. would drink again.

magicmn (120) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 20, 2015
Bottled at CraftRepublic. Very dark colour. Aroma isnt too strong both malty and hop notes there. Overall its very complex beer - differrent notes open to you from start to finish and continue in long aftertaste. This is version of black IPA which have some stout’s notes.

Fashawn (409) - Montesarchio, ITALY - APR 12, 2015
Meravigliosa black Ipa sfornata da to ol, capace di avvolgere del tutto il palato dalla.presenza del mango iniziale, al.passaggio a caffe e cioccolata al latte, prima del finale agli aghi di pino e resina. Meravifliosa creatura.

Saeglopur (953) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 6, 2015
330 ml bottle from Ammersin Centerstore, Brunn am Gebirge.
Pitch black body, with a beautiful, big, stable, dense, creamy, coffee colored head.
Aroma with a lot of coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, salt, some hops.
Tastes of wonderful, dry, but smooth coffee, cocoa, bitter chocolate, liquorice, citric hops.
Full, creamy, oily mouthfeel, with a good carbonation.
In the finish a lot of salt finally, alcohol warmth, roasty-dry coffee, dry cocoa, liquorice, subtle zesty hops.

Delicious! Clearly the best Black IPA I’ve had so far, while this is much more an Imperial Stout than others. The hops are just in the background for balancing purposes and this is indeed perfectly balanced. Coffee everywhere, but still smoothly embedded.
