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!

Tide (2760) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2016
Draught at Mikkeller Barcelona. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with coffee, nuts, hops, roasted malts, vanilla, licorice and a bit of salt. Bitter finish with roasted malts, hops, nuts, vanilla, licorice and chocolate. Exquisite imperial black IPA.

kustie (739) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Opaque black color with light brown head. Aroma has coffee, roasted malt, tropical fruits, dark chocolate. Taste is malty sweet with long bitter and quite dry aftertaste. Flavors of roasted malt, tropical fruits, citrus, coffee, ash, dark chocolate. Complex and somehow very strange one as the tastes are so mixed but still so good and well-paired.

vincentvega72 (322) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 Mooi donker bier met romige crèmekleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken en langzaam wegebt. Hoppig aroma met toetsen van koffie, mout, klein beetje vanille (?), beetje drop. Zoete aanzet. Vol en halfzwaar in de mond. Afdronk licht Koffie - bitter. Zeer zacht voor een bier van 9,9 % abv. Alcohol zit zeer goed verstopt. Perfecte balans. Topbier !!

humpah (78) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2016
0,33l bottle at home from Firmabier. Pours black colour with moderate thick head, lasts in the glass for a while. Aroma of roasted malts, lots of dark coffee, some chocolate and caramel, bitter hops. Medium body. Pleasent coffee finish.

metalspice (570) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2016
Helt svart med lysbrunt skum. Kaffe, grapefrukt og karamell i duften. Frisk kaffe, mørk sitrus, intens bitterhet og et tilstedeværende alkoholpreg. Koseøl.

375 )I think), capped. I’m not sure if we’ve gotten more bottles of this in the States since last summer, but it seemed somewhat likely that this was not the freshest bottles--and it was still rad for sure. Pours an opaque matte black with a thin but creamy tan head that sticks around for a while. Big earthy dry baking chocolate nose. Not much hop character (that’s what makes it seem like this might not be the absolute newest bottle around). Coffee there, some roast, maybe some toasty black bread crusts. Lively carb and a full body; beautiful chocolatey toasty dry mid palate washing into a beautifully dry finish. Really a nice beer that I’m eager to try fresh now for sure.

datrael (131) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 11, 2016
W aromacie z jednej strony słodowo: kawa, czekolada, popiół, jakaś nalewka, z drugiej chmielowa rześkość, cytrusy, które dochodzą do głosu po przelaniu do szkła. W wyglądzie lita czerń z beżową czapą piany, zdobiącą szkło. W smaku uderza potęga kawy niczym w espresso, do tego deserowa czekolada, gdzieś w tle majaczą cytrusy, na finiszu kawowa kwaskowatość. Ciało dość gęste, wysycenie dość spore. Początkowo charakter bardziej stoutu niż ipy, ale nadaje to temu piwu pewnej szlachetności, momentami nasuwają się skojarzenia z risem lub porterem bałtyckim, tylko te buszujące w tle chmiele przypominają, że to jednak ipa. Z czasem jednak dochodzi do głosu żywiczność i grejpfrutowa goryczka, które pod koniec dominują w tym piwie. Bardzo bogate w doznania black ipa, świetnie łączące kawowo-czekoladową słodowość z żywiczno-cytrusowymi chmielami. Do tego niemal 10% alkoholu jeszcze uszlachetnia ten trunek

Aerodynabeer (9) - - JUN 11, 2016 does not count
Nice light Brown head. Lasting long. Hoppy nise quite fresh. Jet back body. Thick in mouth. Complex taste of hoppy flavour and roasted malt. As usual I like what they do at To Øl!

Vraiment particulier. Amertume du café avec un côté salé. Zeste de citron. Tire St Catherine salé. Plus chocolaté, mélasse et malt au nez.
