Bottle. Jet black pour with a frothy tan head. Burnt malts, some peat, exotic fruits, vanilla, some alcohol burn, coffee and chocolate. Somehow this weird mix of flavours comes together and actually tastes good. Good stuff!

Pours an opaque black, with a mocha head. Smells of chocolate, freshly ground coffee and piney hop aromas. Taste is coffee, bitter dark chocolate and a tang of chili and salt. This beer is quite viscous, its like drinking a strong coffee and dark chocolate milkshake.

Aroma: coffee, caramel, cocoa, milk, pine, citrus, chilli, red fruit, biscuit; Appearance: dark brown, minimal foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: slick texture, medium body, astringent finish, average carbonation Perfectly hidden alcohol, delicate coffee stout in the beginning with a slowly submerging hoppy-citric kick. Fine and rather dry, for connoisseurs. Sip slowly.

Very nice french coffee, initial taste is that your drinking a stout and then later you realise its an ipa. It alternates between the coffee and the ipa which I always think is a bit disconcerting, its very nice but Im not a fan of black ipas really, I find more I dislike then I like, really for hubby who adored it, dark, carbonated, head, lacing, bottle at bottle shop.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 9, 2014
Very black and thick tan head. Huge aroma if coffee, pine hops, spruce, cookies, some raisin, yet fresh ingredients as well. Wow, Im impressed! Super smooth, strong bitterness and roasted flavours. Refined? Not the right word, but its not overdone for my taste. I love it! Just my kind of beer! (33cl bottle from A la bire comme la bire)

The best Black IPA ive ever had. Aroma of citrus, coffee, pine. Also a bit of pleasant alcohol (like red wine) Taste is great balance between fruity hops and malts (coffee, dark chocolate) Oily texture. Drinkability is very high, alcohol is well hidden. Perfection.

Good aromas of caramel and dark malts. Hard bitter and salty taste. Heavy bitterness that fills out the sides of the mouth for a long time. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Klimaet (153) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle shared with Vestergaard. Pours black with a thick off-white head. Aromas of some settled hops, some orange peel, citrus, slight smoke, roast, coffee and some licorice. Slightly boozy. Taste is pretty sweet, roasty, malty with a very subtle smokey backnote.
