Pours jet black with a finger tan head. Smells great. very fresh, lots of fruity hops, some pine and hop resin and then lots of coffee intertwined with the black malts. Thick mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Loads of fruit up front in the taste, this segue ways into a nice roasted coffee flavour and finishes off with a subtle hop bitterness. I really like what To Òl have done here, it all comes together very nice as imperial black IPA and its not punishingly bitter as you would expect a IIPA to be.

wombat23 (137) - Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a two-fingered tan head that has good retention. Solid lacing. Nose is cocoa, roasted malt, with a floral, hoppy scent. Taste is coffee, chocolate, alcohol, salt, and roasted malt with citrus notes. A plethora of flavors; interesting, to be sure, but a rather unorthodox combination. Finishes with strong dose of pine/coffee bitterness. Medium to full-bodied.

darbeer75 (122) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Aroma: interesting mix of hops and chocolate; intriguing; Appearance: black with tan head; nice lacing; Taste: rich, hoppy with a somewhat odd taste that I can’t place -- salt? Palate: heavy body with sharp/bitter aftertaste; Overall: good but it doesn’t quite work for me. Wouldn’t buy again.

rikstar (1768) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2016
0,33l fles meegebracht uit Duitsland. Zwart met een mooie volle crème schuimkraag. Geur is cacao en geroosterd brood. Smaak Is koffie pure chocolade, aangebrande toast en salmiak dikke ziltige afdronk, alcohol komt wel wat ver op de voorgrond. Iets teveel in het geroosterde, verder een mooi bier ipa vindt ik er lastig in te ontdekken.

Bue à la pression. Couleur brun foncé, fine mousse blanche. Nez café, pain grillé et fumé. Palais qui commence fort, fumé et bien amer puis se radoucit pour aller jusqu’à une finale longue avec une pointe épicée.
