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!

Butelka, warka do 04/12/18, 100 ocena na RB :) Super wyglad - bardzo ciemne, brazowo czarne, ledwo ledwo przepuszcza troche swiatla, na tyle, by byly refleksy brazowo-miedziane. Idealna piana - bujna, drobnopecherzykowa, opadajaca powoli, ladnie zostajaca na szkle. Aromaty bardziej stoutowe, chmiele graja tu drugoplanowa role. Czekolada, kawa (gorzka i aromatyczna, espresso, espresso doppio, duzo kawy), palonosc, sliwki w czekoladzie. Troche jakichs piernikowych nutek. Z chmieli zywicznosc, grejfrut, duzo delikatniej. Smak kawowo-czekoladowy, lekko kwaskowaty (wraz z wzrostem temperatory ta kwaskowatosc z palonych slodow rosnie). Faktycznie przy kilku lykach wrazenie gdzies tam na granicach percepcji soli. Goryczka niemala i bardzo pozostajaca - wraz z kawowymi posmakami - na jezyku. Wysycenie dosc wysokie. Dosc pelne. Nieco oleiste. Ciekawy efekt przy ogrzewaniu sie - aromat coraz slodszy (bardziej czekoladowy) podczas gdy smak coraz bardziej kwaskowaty i palony. Sumarycznie: ewidentnie klasa piwo, pokazujace, jak rozlegla jest definicja Black IPA

pastymc (13) - Niscemi, ITALY - JAN 16, 2015
Bottiglia 33 cl Colore bruno scuro, quasi nero, con un bel cappello di schiuma color nocciola, pannoso, persistente non molto a lungo. Gli aromi di malto tostato e caffè sono molto intensi al naso, con frutta secca e acida(prugne) e legna bruciata alla fine. Stessi aromi riproposti in bocca, ben presente il caffè, dosato in maniera originale e perfetta. Sfumature di carciofo al palato, immediatamente prima del luppolo che conquista il palato, ancora insieme al caffè. Corposa al punto giusto, carbonazione medio-bassa. Finale secco (anche se dopo un po’ arriva una leggera e piacevole astringenza) e lungo, complesso. Il sale marino crea in bocca un senso di movimento, che quasi ricorda i mari del Nord. Birra di una complessità tale che la bevuta è una continua ricerca di sapori e sfumature. Splendida

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a generous coffee coloured head. Head reduces gradually with a lot of lacing left around the glass. Aroma is mainly of hops, pine, little bit of the roasted malt and coffee. Taste is initially of dark malts, chocolate, nice hit from the hops, more pine, little bit citrusy. Really nice long finish with the expresso dominating. Loved this a lot. Light carbonation, smooth mouthfeel, medium to heavy body.

fkoolen (383) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Very dark brown colour, beige cream head. Roasted malty tones like bitter chocolate and cacao, milky coffee and caramel and piny, citrus and tropical fruity hops. Also some red and dried fruits to be noted, vanilla too; especially as it warms. No boozy burn despite 10° abv. Especially the balance between flavours with the velvet soft (!) mouthfeel is impressive. Light and dry aftertaste. Medium carbonation, good body.

PapaSkeetSkeet (912) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Black (stout) liquid with 1 inch of medium-brown head, moderate-to-fine coarseness, a bit frothy, moderate-to-slow rate of decay to patchy, appealing film that stays. Aroma is sappy pine, some black coffee, some grapefruit peel, hint of caramel (but difficult to discern under the strong flavors here.) Medium-to-medium-heavy body, gritty-oily, moderate carbonation with moderate-to-intense burn. Flavor is sap, earthy bark, evergreen, bitter fruit rind, some dark coffee (particularly on the exhale.) Big bitterness that doesn’t linger long. A touch of caramel. Overall, an excellent BIPA with a coffee presence that is understated. Perhaps a bit too bitter for me.

Chocolate, coffee and hops on the aroma, with a salty hoppy finish, very easy drinking. So well balanced.

ulises77 (7) - México D.F., MEXICO - DEC 30, 2014 does not count
Pours a very dark brown with brown thin head and roasted coffee and little hoppy aroma. Little heavy body with taste like coffee in the middle and lightly bitter at the end. Very well balanced beer. Great beer.

pictoman (667) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured from 330mL bottle [M.H.T. 04/12/18]. Black with light tan head. Roast malt and coffee with a little chocolate in the background; Some sweet citrus hops and subtle floral kind of salt. Very well balanced - no flavour is predominant, but none clash either, quite harmonious.
