hopwine (267) - Bend, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Tons of roasted malt, prominent coffee, primarily pine for the hop profile accompanied by some citrus. Firm, but not overbearing bitterness provides an interesting counterpoint to the richness of the coffee. Really nice stuff!

Simonsen (628) - NORWAY - JUL 26, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet kolbotn. Svart farge, lite/moderat karbonert, lys skumtopp. En svart ipa med mye kaffesmak, brent malt, brunt sukker, humle, grapefrukt. En Utrolig god og velbalansert øl. Merker nesten ikke bitterheten og at det 9.9%

Sebilinz (453) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Nice dark brown nearly black body with brown lasting head. Aroma is first of a Ipa after some times it changes to the aroma of a stout. Taste is pine coffee vanilla and dried fruits. Aftertaste is smooth coffee with some cocoa. I can’t believe that this is 120 Ibus. Very nice one.

hohops (226) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Appearance is very very dark brown, almost black, with a 2-3 finger mocha-coloured foamy head which persists throughout. Looks great, and smells the same- coffee, chocolate, dark malts, burnt toast notes, hints of bitter hops. Taste- huge amounts of coffee here, bitter espresso notes, mocha, milk chocolate, very bitter- the hops come through at the end. Full mouthfeel, smooth and silky in the mouth, with a very long and bitter finish. The alcohol is pretty much completely hidden. Delicious.

DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Very delicious. Super light and fresh avec mons tongue. A nibbly bite of hops, with a painted staircase of smooth intense mocha coffee. Does not taste nearly 10% - remarkably well done.

Lukasmh (83) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. AWESOME LABEL - best iv’e seen! Pours dark dark brown, let’s no light through. One finger light brown head with great lacing. Aroma is hoppy! Loads of simcoe! Coffee, roasty but really fresh. Taste is slightly sweet, dark chocolate end roasty, but is also in someway citrusy, which then is overtaken by the dry bitterness and bitter coffee. Light to medium body. N1! Warmin, but no notice of the alcohol!

Pours a very dark brown with beautiful lacing. Aromas of sour coffee, pine, roasted malts and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, espresso, and roasted malts. Wonderful cross IPA and coffee stout. Beautiful!

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from Kitsilano Liquor, Vancouver; bb 04/12/18, batch 440
Black color with generous brownish head. The aroma of fruity, perfumy beer is perceived as soon as the cap is removed, so typical of these Danish contract brewed beers: some coffee and roasted malt. Robust but lean body, if thicker it would be an Imperial Stout; the flavor profile starts with an Imperial Stout, strong roasted malt, some coffee, a bit salty, hints of liquorice; and then a powerful hopping, very resiny, but that also offers fruity sides; moderate residual sweetness. Ends with traces of alcohol, warming.
Solid, flowery. Very good.
