Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate, light and crispy. Smooth dark malts, touch of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Tangy dried fruits underneath. Thin light malt cream. Light piney hops, mildly spicy. Very light citrus. Finishes semi dry and crisp. A refreshing and easy drinking black ipa.

Big 75cl bottle. Appearance is deceiving. It looks like a dark beer. But it isn’t. Good full ipa. Would recommend

JulienHuxley (3549) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
On tap at BeerTemple. Black pour with off white head. Very hoppy aroma, tame roastiness, very tropical hoppiness with light piney notes. Taste is bitter, roastiness is much more present in the taste, nice juicy hop flavor to balance however, very tasty black IPA.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with big frothy beige head, roasted malt and pine hop aroma, taste has a decent amount of piney resinous hop with some glorious roasted malts and coffee, a hint of grapefruit moderate bitterness, wonderful mouthfeel, this is one of those beers where your glad you had a 750 to yourself.

Idiosynkrasie (4249) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2013
750ml bottle. Black colour with average to huge, frothy, fully lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Hoppy aroma has grapefruit notes, roasty dark malty background. Taste is roasty dark malty, bitter hoppy overtones, hints of grapefruit, the peppery spicy melange of bitter hop and roasty malt brings typical notes of green onions.

hawthorne00 (2596) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013
Growler. Black with a large light tan head that’s never less than a coat. Aroma of overdone breadcrusts, passionfruit, grapefruit, lychees. Sweet with bread crusts, molasses, licorice, an ashy/ burnt note that’s quite heavy, tropical fruit. Fairly strong bitterness. Dissonance is a kind of harmony up to a point (somewhere close by) - but this is interesting, tasty and hangs together just about enough.

dexcansino (474) - Andalucía, SPAIN - NOV 28, 2013
Cerveza negra con espuma densa. Olor muy floral y afrutado. Sabor muy lupulado, tostado, cítrico y acaramelado. Compleja y muy redonda.
