Bottle @ home. What an amazing black ipa, or should I say black cascadian ale. First aroma is underwhelming with the first taste. Chocolate, creamy coffee, fruits, flowers, roasted malts, sweet caramel. Incredibly good balance. One of the best I had in the black ipa corner. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Fles gekocht @De Bierkoning. Mijn 1e Toccalmatto (Smoking Trojka collab met Jopen en Grateful Deaf niet meegerekend). Een mooi zwart bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van gebrande mout, hop, fruit. De smaak is bitter, hoppig, donker, fruitig. In de nasmaak proef je de gebrande mout met de bitterheid van de hop. Heerlijke black IPA.

Bizarre beer. Aroma is both roast and citrus. Flavor is the same but has a long lingering smoky bitterness. Pours black with some thick head. Light ish and well carbed. Really interesting.

SkillsFactory (523) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2015
Color marrone scuro, quasi nero, bella schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza. Aroma di malti tostati (caffè), pompelmo e note erbacee. Al palato attacca con note tostate seguite poi da pompelmo e, successivamente, caffè, cacao, nocciole e liquirizia; termina con un amaro di pompelmo molto marcato. Corpo medio, oleosa, mediamente carbonata.

oliodnb (661) - ITALY - APR 28, 2015
75cl bottle shared. Pours very dark reddish brown with a beautiful beige head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly light tropical and candied fruits with an unpleasant acidic note that fades away as the beer warms up. Taste starts with a faint sweetness followed by roastiness, coffee, some bitterness. Almost nothing to support the roasted component, maybe due to the bottle age (exp. 08/2015) that could have killed the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Disappointing.

shorg1 (38) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 16, 2015
Pours black, with white head. More roasty than hoppy notes in nose. Hoppy start with citrus and tropical notes, roasty, coffee finish. Could be more bitter.
